Hi everyone! I'm Alexis, Michelle's younger sister and blogger at FITnancials.
Many of you might already know me, but if you don't, I've been spending the past two years traveling around the world as a blogger, au pair, and volunteer. I’ve also taken several mother and daughter trips with my mom. I write a lot about my travels, which you can read about here.
I caught the travel bug from my dad, who passed away when I was 14. He spent his life traveling around the world and had plenty of stories to share because of that.
Michelle and I both have boxes and boxes of photo albums from our dad, and I love opening up a photo album to see that I’ve taken a picture in the same exact spot as my dad. It's almost as if we are traveling together, which is an amazing feeling when your dad has been gone for 10 years.
