We are Bia and Alex,
on a quest of encountering new understanding while sharing experience through story with all along the way.
Alex (I) am from the United States growing up in the mid-west while having moved around through five states. I have mostly traveled within North America but have always had an enormous curiosity of the world around me with much interest to travel further. After a University I spent most of my 20’s grinding away in hopes to find what more money could do for me. There was no loss of those years as I acquired an abundance of experience including a strong work ethic and a better understanding of controlling my destiny. Prior to heading into my 30’s I took off towards Southern California for perspective and to reprioritize life goals. After meeting Bia in San Diego we connected on similar goals and while at a happy hour pieced together a travel plan to explore the world drawn out on a bar napkin. One year later we found ourselves jobless and homeless besides our 2000 Honda Accord (with 261k miles) and a few backpacks driving across the country and beyond, challenge and excitement awaiting.
Bia (I) am from São Paulo – Brazil, I have worked for 7 years with Human Resources, also I worked with events, as entertainer, planner and hostess. I have a BA in Education, a MBA in Strategic Management of People and a Postgraduate degree in Organizational Psychology. I was pretty comfortable in a routine but that was not enough to make me feel more fulfilled in life, after my first trip to the United States my passion for traveling and learning new cultures has been something that has become a part of me. So I gave up of my career and came to the United States as an Au Pair, ( an exchange program that you live with a family and take care of their kids) the reason? To be happy, get out of my comfort zone, make new friends, learn a new language, live a new culture and above of all, a strong desire to live intensely. I love to cook (specialty Brazilian food as coxinha, feijoada, rice and beans), sing and dance, if there is a song going on I’ll be dancing and singing for sure.
We are a happy, friendly couple who love to meet new people, learn different things and explore around. We are quick learners so we are willing to try new things!
We are excited to start this journey and share as many new moments with as many wonderful people as we go! If you have any questions please let us know!!
Obrigado, Gracias and Thank you,
Alex & Bia
