Since its birth in 2014, Go Live Explore has evolved into a destination for stylish adventure and an outlet for travel, style, fitness, food, and adventure! 

I grew up in Nottingham in the UK, but after studying Law in Paris in my early 20s, I realized something that would shape my life in the most incredible way - how much I loved to travel. I've since travelled to 32 destinations and counting, and I feel fortunate to be able to live my passion and share my experiences with others while doing so. 

5 years ago, I crossed paths with a handsome blonde who shares my passion for travel and adventure. We endured 3 (long) years of living across the world from one other, but the distance all became worth it when we finally got to be together.

In 2015, after exploring Southeast Asia for 3 months, we skipped continents and continued our adventure in North America, which landed us in what's now my favourite city in the world - Vancouver.

What started as a personal travel diary has now grown into a lifestyle brand & a place where style and adventure meet. I've been fortunate enough to work with some amazing brands over the last 2 years such as Southwest Airlines, Maybelline, Ford, Expedia, and Garnier - to name a few - and i'm so excited for where my blog will take me next.

If you'd like to get in touch, discuss how we can work together, or simply have a chat, drop me an email at alicia@golivexplore.com!

    Hi Alicia, your bio’s inspiring! I had a similar experience with my SEA trip; it was supposed to be 6 weeks, but I ended up traveling for a half-year, and starting a travel blog of my own, Visit50.com. Hope you both still get to travel a bunch from your new homebase in Vancouver. Thanks for sharing

    Hey Alicia, thanks for the follow. I’ve enjoyed reading your blog as I’m also a writer from the UK and looking to move to Canada later this year with my boyfriend! I visited Vancouver for the first time in Jan and absolutely fell in love! 🙂 Keep it up x

    Sorry, I didn’t see this until now! Well we’re going to do a season in Whistler first then travel across Canada as we have a 2-year working visa, but my brother already lives in Vancouver so we’ll likely stay with him in the summer! 🙂 x
