The Faces Behind Roonee – Alex

Hello, I’m Alex and I’m the creator and curator of! Most of the articles you’ll find across the site are from me, although I have a small team that sometimes contribute with their own posts and articles. 

I’ve been an avid traveller for as long as I can remember, and take particular joy in solo travel. I love exploring new places without being tied to what anyone else wants to see or do, and there isn’t an awful lot on the net about solo female travel so I thought I’d start posting about it! Since starting to post here, a number of other solo female travellers have been in touch which has been wonderful, and a community is starting to form!

When I’m not on the go, I can usually be found spending time with my wonderful twin children, or discussing environmentalism, something I am incredibly passionate about. My family life and love of the environment bleed into the way I travel, as you may have noticed if you’ve read any articles on When I’m not adventuring completely alone, I often travel alone with my twins, navigating the many obstacles that are in the way of travel as a solo mum with kids, and I’m always on the look out for ways to make my travel habits more sustainable and earth conscious. 

Aside from, I write a personal blog where you can find various musings and rants about all things relating to being a plus size, environmentalist twin-mum! If you’d like to have a look then you can find the blog here, but in the mean time I do hope you’ll take the time to explore the many travel related articles on If there is anything you’d like to see covered on the site then please do not hesitate to get in touch – I’m friendly and love hearing from readers!
