G'day! I'm Alexander

Tattooed Traveler & Cancer Survivor
Watch one of my travel reviews

What makes this travel blog different?

Do you love well crafted travel blogs overflowing with pictures of sexy Instagram models?

Each with skin softer than my approach to a hard day’s work?

Then you’ve come to the wrong place.

I’m just a cancer survivor who enjoys a beer, a laugh, and an adventure.

But…I will give you valuable travel tips. I’ll tell you stories so you know exactly what to expect on the road. And I will confess to shit that you have to promise NOT to tell my Mum.

Seriously. She doesn’t know about this blog. And let’s all keep it that way.

I promise you this though – I’ll either tell you something you didn’t know about your next travel destination. Or I’ll entertain you with a story.

And if I’m wrong, well…then I owe you a beer.

If you need to claim your prize, you can find my phone number scrawled on most disreputable bathroom walls.

So thanks for stopping by.

Yours in time,

Alexander J Porter

How cancer inspired me to travel the world.

The day my Dad told me I had cancer, my life flashed before my eyes.

And there wasn’t much to see.

After 244 days of treatment, I managed to beat cancer. I don’t think it was a knockout blow. But I’d like to think I won on points.

I promised myself in that moment, that if my cancer ever came back, and I was forced to watch my life flash before my eyes again – that I would have a life worth watching.

So I’ve been traveling ever since, making the most of my second chance at life.

One country. One beer. One tattoo. And one story at a time.
