Hi. I’m Alex Earll, and welcome to gone2long!
From window sales rep to world traveler.
Back in 2012 I decided to take my first solo trip to Europe. After finishing university, I quit my job and took off on what I thought would be a 2 month adventure. Nervous, I hopped on the flight and my life has never been the same since!
That 2 month trip turned into a 4 month trip. Traveling was something I hadn’t really done before, but I loved it. Upon returning home from Europe, I slotted back into my sales role and quickly decided that was not the life for me. So in May of 2013 I sold everything and headed back out into the world!
I’ve stopped and worked a lot along the way, and I am currently in New Zealand with a broken leg. I’ve decided now would be a great time to reflect on my previous travels. I’ll share with you my tips, tricks, and mistakes I’ve made along the way!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy and happy reading!
