Alice Yeh describes herself as a semi-professional wanderer. A tech sales executive by day and travel blogger by night, Yeh admits she’s always up for an adventure and spontaneous last-minute trips.
But being a travel blogger in the age of COVID is next to impossible. Still, according to Yeh, a girl’s gotta what she’s gotta do to stay sane and find ways to satisfy her “travelholic wanderlust.” In her most recent post, she shares the silver lining to COVID, explaining she now sticks to local traveling.
“2020 is the year of US National Parks!” writes Yeh, explaining that since there will be no more international trips for the rest of the year and most likely 2021, it’s all about exploring the great outdoors in the US.
Having visited over 50 countries, Yeh has lived so far in Philadelphia, New York, Hong Kong, London, and Singapore. “My love for travel is deeply rooted in my curiosity and desire to learn,” she explains in her bio. “My mom even told me that when I was a kid, she could never take her eyes off of me because as soon as she turned around, I’d be gone—off in my own world exploring,” she recalls.
According to Yeh, when she was a kid, her parents would take her on road trips all around the US to visit National Parks. “As immigrants, they wanted to experience what the new home country had to offer,” she reflects. “Even though we never actually went camping (my first camping experience was during college with schoolmates), I was always amazed by the beauty that nature had to offer. The US is a huge, diverse country.”
