Alex Reynolds is an American travel writer, photographer, and full-time backpacker whose work has been featured on the likes of BBC and Lonely Planet. She’s scrambled up dusty fortresses in Afghanistan, watched gods dance in southern India, followed spirit dogs through the Caucasus mountains, and posed with AK-47s in Pakistan. Her travel blog, Lost With Purpose, serves as a guide to help others do the same.
These days, she can usually be found with a pack on her back and a camera on her hip, wondering if it’s acceptable to eat kulfi twice in one day.
Alex didn’t expect this unplanned homestay in the hillside village of Kuenga Rabten to be a highlight of her trip to Bhutan.
