Upon stumbling across an Instagram account called _alexinwanderland, I was taken through a world of sunshine, beaches, far off places, and yoga. One look through this gallery and I could immediately tell that this beautiful long-legged blonde was truly living her life and enjoying it to the fullest extent. I always love a person who is passionate about life and travel, but what I love even more is a couple who loves travel so much that they set off to conquer their dreams together. Alexandra Carson and her partner Michael Gallagher recently quit their jobs and bought a one-way ticket to Italy to explore Europe and share their stories on their blog, couplescoordinates.com. Originally from California, they now call Florence their home base to exploring the world. Must be nice!
From one of my favorite posts on Alexandra’s Instagram: “You know that dream you have? The one where you just get on a plane and go? Move to a foreign country? Explore the world? OK well maybe this is my dream but it is seriously something I’ve craved for as long as I can remember, and I am beyond thankful to have my best friend and love be as crazy and as full of wanderlust as I am! Quitting our jobs and leaving everything we’ve ever known behind in less than a week!! It’s not about running away or trying to escape something. It’s about wanting to discover the world as it really is! America we love you always…but hello ONE WAY tickets to FLORENCE, ITALY.” (scroll down to see the interview)
