Since its birth in 2014, Go Live Explore has evolved into a destination for stylish adventure and an outlet for travel, style, fitness and lifestyle topics in-between.

I grew up in Nottingham in the UK, spent my University years studying Law with French in Sheffield and in Paris, and after graduating, backpacked around Southeast Asia with my boyfriend Matt, which is where I developed my love of travel and Go Live Explore came to life. We then continued our adventure to Vancouver in 2015, Canada, and have since made this beautiful city our home.

Through my blog and social media, I touch on a range of lifestyle topics, from luxury travel, to sustainability, to outdoorsy adventures, to skincare and wellness. I love creating beautiful imagery, captivating videos and useful, in-depth written content to inspire and empower my audience to see more of the world and create a life they love. You can also find me on Instagram, Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter

What once started as a personal travel diary has now grown into a lifestyle brand & a place where style and adventure meet, with an emphasis on luxury and inspiring people to live their best life. To date, i've travelled to over 45 destinations and counting, and it's wonderful to be able to combine my love of travel, photography and writing and bring new and exciting content to my blog that my readers will enjoy.

I have amassed a global following through my blog and social media and have partnered with a number of highly established travel, fashion and lifestyle brands, including Google, Hong Kong Airlines, L'Oreal Professionnel, La Roche-Posay, Fairmont Hotels, Six Senses Resort, Sport Chek, Air Transat, Indigo Chapters, Links of London, Fors, H&M and more.

    Just read your bio and it’s so lovely to see how much we have in common! I grew up in Nottingham until I was about 6, also studied French at Sheffield (the aim was to do a year abroad in Paris, though I ended up in Montpellier – no complaints though!) and I stumbled upon your brilliant and insightful post about moving to Canada because I’ve been dreaming of moving to Vancouver for the last few years.

    Looking forward to reading about more of your travels.

    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

    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

    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

      There’s definitely something amazing about SEA hey…i’m not surprised you ended up extending your trip! It must have been amazing being out there for 6 months! Will check out the blog 🙂
