Hi people! My name is Aliaksei, or just Alex, I am an adventurous traveller, passionate learner, enthusiastic backpacker and couchsurfer from Belarus with over 45 visited countries and 6 countries where I lived. This year me, my wife Nayeli (a crazy and adventurous Mexican), and some of our friends start a world road trip going around Americas, Africa, Asia and Europe and we would be more than happy to share it with friendly, open-minded and adventurous travellers from all around the world. That is why we decided to create @Vibe Adventures@ - an independent travelling initiative with a goal to popularize and share good vibes of adventurous travel and thus enable more people to discover and appreciate the wonders of our beautiful planet. For this purpose we will run a same-named blog and share our trips in Wetravel. Feel free to join the adventures and if any questions, please contact us via social media or email: info@vibeadventures.com
