Alexander Szabo is an American writer currently based in Indiana. Ever since he visited the jungles of Peru as a child, he's been enamored with traveling abroad and seeing everything that the world has to offer. Now that he's grown, he has done his best to realize that dream, traveling to 35 countries and living in four (not counting his home country - the United States). No matter where he goes, he always finds warm people, beautiful locales, and plenty of adventure. For him, that's plenty of reason to keep on exploring. As a budget traveler in his twenties, Alex tends to gravitate toward destinations that give you the most bang for your buck. He also loves traveling to places with jaw-dropping landscapes and astounding natural splendor. Maybe it's due to growing up in the relatively flat Midwestern state of Indiana, but Alex is particularly drawn to coasts, mountains, and rainforests. Not that that's a bad thing - he loves every minute of it! You'll find that Alex tends to write guides to destinations around Asia, where he's spent 7 years of his life, as well as other far flung locations like Australia and South America. He hopes you'll find them helpful in planning adventures of your own. Who knows? Perhaps he'll see you on his next trip!
