Life After Leukemia.
G’day, I’m Alexander – a tattooed cancer survivor and world traveler.
I was diagnosed with Leukemia when I was 20 years old, just a week before Christmas. Which makes me think I must have been a really shit kid that year. Thanks a lot Santa.
My life flashed before my eyes with that diagnosis, and you know what? There wasn’t much to see.
I promised myself that if I beat cancer, I would make the most of my second chance at life.
And I’ve been traveling the world ever since. Making good on the promise I made myself, one story at a time.
I hope this travel blog gives you tips for your next trip. I hope it makes you laugh.
But most of all I hope it reminds you to make the most of each day you have, so that when the time comes – you’ve got a life story worth watching too.
Why is this a travel ‘glob’ and not a travel blog?
I think ‘glob’ sounds so much funnier than blog. Plus there are already so many travel blogs online I couldn’t bare to add another.
I was never one to stick to convention anyway. I went and got Leukemia while none of my 4 brothers did, so clearly I blaze the road less traveled. Enjoy the tips, trips and stories of the world in my very own ‘glob’.

“I’m not a terrorist”. We’d only been on the flight for a few minutes. I hadn’t even had time to have my customary panic attack and this man was convincing me he wasn’t a terrorist. Which to me sounds like flimsy logic. When I was young my Mum would ask me, "did you...
“Does my asshole look as nice as his?” I asked my girlfriend. Unsure if I’d been heard, I repeated the question. Her silence said more than words ever could. Learning you don't have a cute asshole is like dying. You know it will happen someday, but you never think it...
Why Inked? And Where Abroad?
Our world is full of incredible people, places and experiences.
I once found a squirrel inside a bin in Washington DC. That’s a bad example.
Still, there’s always somewhere new to explore. And with a love of tattoos that help express my battle with cancer, I do it in style.
