A Scenic Find is a travel blog that focuses on scenic travel; predominantly vivid landscapes and impressive cityscapes. If it’s something you’ll stand in awe of the first time you see it, chances are you’ll find it on here eventually.
My generation have turned themselves into avid travelers, it’s so common among the middle and upper class now that traveling is almost seen as a rite of passage. Many of us grew up taking atleast one backpacking trip where we traipsed across multiple countries, which inspired us enough to keep traveling as we grew older, got jobs and settled down.
I started A Scenic Find to reach those who are outgrowing their backpacking years, but haven’t let their love of travel fade. It’s inevitable, eventually we get older and slumming it in a five dollar dorm room isn’t exactly on our bucketlist. We want to see things beyond the basic tourist destinations, splurge every so often on worthy hotels and see landscapes that remind us that we’re never too jaded.
I like to believe that the more we travel, the more we realise that we can’t see it all, and hence we start to hone in on certain aspects of travel we prefer. For me scenic travel is an area I focus on when I’m planning a trip.
I prioritise beautiful and interesting landscapes as the focus of my trips. I’ve given up the notion that I have to see every attraction listed in the guidebook just because it’s popular. If you want to spend your annual leave visiting obscure mountain ranges then that’s exactly what you should do, letting go of the guilt that you still haven’t seen some famous tower you don’t really care about.
About me (Lexi)
I’m an Australian on the wrong side of twenty-five (hence the British English spelling), who is fortunate enough to have traveled to 25 countries over the past few years.
In the past five years I’ve lived in Australia, Mexico, Malaysia and China, where I’ve been able to travel frequently around these regions. My favourite places in these countries are the Whitsundays, Hierve del Agua, Langkawi and Jiuzhaigou respectively.
I guess I like water.
When I’m not traveling I’m planning to populate my new house with a puppy and a kitten, and searching for just the right shade of plum to add to my linen closet.
Lastly, I don’t like to overplay my achievements, but I may just make the guacamole of my generation.
