“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.” – Anthony Bourdain

Hey there,

I’m Alex.


I’m a food writer and lover of travel. I currently live in Adelaide, South Australia. I love where I live, and all this amazing country provides.

I have a serious case of wanderlust though, and I want to see and experience all the world has to offer. In the words of the great Helen Keller: “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.”

My love of travel is something I was born with. My parents both worked in the travel industry and took me on adventures from a very early age. I was blessed to also spend three very happy years working for a national airline.

These days, I write a food blog called It’s Not Complicated Recipes. One of the best things about my job is I can literally work anywhere in the world. I am blessed that I now have the freedom to travel more.

This blog will include my adventures overseas and around Australia, as well as sharing some of my favourite things to do around my home city of Adelaide. (It is so much fun being a tourist in your home city!).

I look forward to sharing this amazing experience called life with you.

Stay in touch!

Alex, xoxo
