Hello. My name is Christine, welcome to my Travel Blog! I’m a Swedish Travel Blogger and Photographer who travel the world full-time together with my boyfriend Alex.

I’ve been traveling full-time since 2014 and along the way, I’ve knocked off some great adventures from my Bucket List. I love spending time out in nature and I have a passion for paradise beaches and responsible travel.

I started AlienChris.com to share my passion for traveling and to inspired more people to do the same and get out to explore our beautiful world. It doesn’t have to be hard or expensive to travel, and the world isn’t nearly as dangerous as most people think.

Our world is way too beautiful and interesting to not be explored. So follow along! It’s time to explore our beautiful world!

What to expect from me as a Travel Blogger?

One of the things that are most important for me with my travel blog, is to always stay honest – to 100%. I would never beautify a destination, hotel or restaurant if I don’t like it, even though I’m attending a press trip, make sponsored posts or ads. You can always be sure that you read my 100% honest experiences and thoughts. My followers and readers will always be my number 1.

I always try to make my articles and travel guides as structured as possible, which is something I want when reading an article. You’re also going to see me write a lot about responsible travel, which is something that I’m really passionate about!


What kind of destinations do I go to?

I’m an open-minded person, so I always like to travel to new interesting countries and destinations. I love to visit places off the beaten path and make a mix of both cities & nature and budget & luxury.

I love to travel local and meet local people eat at local restaurants and just enjoy that side of traveling. I also love to do luxury travel since it can be quite relaxing to spoil yourself a couple of days.

One thing that I especially love when traveling is doing Homestay where you get to stay with a local family in their home and both eat and spend time with them. It gives you a really cool experience and I can highly recommend anyone to try it!

How It All Started

Before my big life journey, I lived in a rental apartment in central Stockholm. I worked 9-5 with an unbalanced schedule, bought a lot of expensive food and drinks and bought unnecessary clothes, things, and accessories (which some things I’ve still never worn or used). I thought that I needed all that stuff to be happy, to have a glamours life, to go on luxurious vacations and be as fabulous as I possibly could be.

Thankfully I got my wake-up call! 

I got tired of all the partying, the glamorous life in Stockholm and all the pressure of that everything should be so perfect all the time. You can say that I got panic, as I lived a life where I wasn’t happy. Alex felt the same as me and suggested we should start with travel blogging since that’s something he’s been curious about for years.

We both loved to travel, so why not try to make a living out of it? 

We saved our money and moved the little things that we had into our parent’s homes, left the apartment in Stockholm and moved to Spain. There we began our lives as Digital Nomads and Travel Bloggers, in an environment where we felt motivated and inspired.

Ever since then, I have called the world my ”office,” just because I can.
