Wildlife Tripper is a new travel blog that focuses on animal and wildlife experiences for travelers. As long as I can remember I’ve always loved animals, I guess some of it goes back to spending summers in the country. As I grew older I came to find wilder animals fascinating, with dreams of seeing elephants, dolphins and other creatures in the wild.
I decided to start this blog as I wanted to have a place to share my favorite animal experiences which couldn’t be shared on my main travel blog, which has predominantly focused on travel photography. In December 2017 I will be embarking on a one-way-ticket trip and I hope to chronicle many animal experiences along the way.
Here’s What You’ll Find
- Animal Experiences: From safari to day tours to independent animal experiences while traveling.
- Scuba Diving & Snorkeling Experiences: Dive and snorkeling spots where you can interact with sea life.
- Travel Gear Advice: What to pack on your travels.
- Animal Facts: All types of random knowledge about your favorite creatures.
- Travel tips for wildlife lovers on their travels.
And, Who Am I?
My name is Lexi and I’m an English Teacher about to embark on an epic solo trip. I come from that big island with kangaroos and a whole bunch of spiders, otherwise known as Australia. Here are five facts about me.
- I have a love-hate relationship with birds and butterflies – basically anything with wings. On one hand, I love photographing them and watching them go about their business. On the other hand, I like to have them keep a safe distance from me, which probably stems from being chased by geese as a child. We all have our quirks.
- I’ve always grown up in moderate sized cities but during summer breaks my mum would send me off to the country to stay at with my aunt. There I grew a love of horses, dogs and pretty much any other furry creature I could find.
- I cried the first time I saw a sloth.
- My favorite swimming experience was with a manatee, I had really wanted to swim with dolphins but noticed the manatee swim was cheaper. Being my silly emotional self, I knew I had to do the manatee experience worrying that they probably got much less attention and might feel bad. Yes, I know how silly that sounds, and despite being a full grown adult, this is always how my logic works. This experience sparked a love of manatees, which are such peaceful and interesting creatures.
- I’m mildly obsessed with cats, so expect a few cat park and cafe articles even though they’re not technically wildlife. I will take up any chance I can to interact with cats while traveling.
You can find Wildlife Tripper on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and animal specific videos on my Animal Experiences playlist on Youtube. I’m currently uploading a giant backlog of travel vlogs from my past travels around China, Japan, South Korea and Western Europe, and will be making daily travel vlogs of my upcoming trip.
