About AlicevstheWorld



Hey, I’m Alice, the owner of AlicevstheWorld!

A 22-year-old Brit born and raised in the East of England, I’ve always been intrigued by the peculiar places out there! Anything that falls under the bracket of ‘spooky’, ‘eccentric’ or just plain ‘weird’ never fails to draw me in, and in March 2016 I decided to make AlicevstheWorld as a place to share my adventures.

I wanted to create a place where readers could come together to celebrate the unusual side of travel, and find out about incredible attractions they may never have heard of! And over the last year this has also become a place to share my tips, guides and cultural insights. All served up with a healthy dose of weirdness, and featuring some of the most incredible, unbelievable places on the planet!

To give you a flavor of what you can expect, since starting AlicevstheWorld I’ve:

  • Eaten lunch with the moggies at London’s only cat cafe
  • Explored the UK’s most haunted prison
  • Met a maiko in Kyoto
  • Entered the surreal world of Meido in Akihabara
  • Hunted for vampires in Highgate Cemetery
  • Been asked to be an extra in a Japanese movie (but chickened out at the last-minute)

Well, maybe ignore the last one. But my point is that I’ve had many extraordinary adventures over the last year, and have no intention to stop there! I look forward to seeing how this blog continues to grow in the months and years that follow, and really hope you’ll come along for the ride.

And you think my readers would be an awesome bunch to share your product with, or are a fellow blogger wishing to collaborate like a pair of travel superheros, do send me an email at alicevstheworld@yahoo.com!
