  • Lexi is an Italian-American who grew up traveling in Italy throughout her childhood, lived in Rome for four years, and spent many breaks and holidays exploring different corners of Europe.
  • Since graduating with her master's degree in 2018, Lexi has been traveling and living abroad almost non-stop and has visited over 20 countries around the globe and counting, both solo and with her partner.
  • Lexi's love of Slow Travel blossomed after spending many of her summers in her family's village in Northern Italy, and she now runs her own blog sharing information and tips about Slow Travel with her readers.


Lexi's experience as a writer began in her early teens when she wrote several espionage-themed books. Though they went unpublished, her passion continued throughout high school and into college, where she studied Non-fiction Creative Writing. From her travel to Italy throughout her childhood and after a life-changing semester abroad in Australia, she wrote several pieces for her senior thesis that revolved around the intersection of travel and cultural exploration, both of other cultures and one's own. After living overseas for graduate school and working at the UN for two years, she and her partner decided to become digital nomads, traveling the world together across Europe, South America, and Asia, which she writes about on her travel blog, Crossing Oceans. She has since been freelance writing for travel marketing agencies and blogs and, since joining Explore in late 2022, has written more than 100 travel-themed articles.


Lexi studied Non-fiction Creative Writing at the University of Redlands, where she graduated with honors. Lexi also studied at the American University of Rome in Italy for an MA in Sustainable Food Studies.
