Let’s get straight to it. By now, most of us have had enough inspiration and not enough reality checks. More so now than ever, millennials are choosing their own path and exploring the world while getting quad-monthly Sally Mae emails. But they’re doing it unprepared, expecting perfection only to realize Insta-travel is as far as Pluto.
That’s why we’re here. We’re not penny-pinching budget backpackers and no matter how hard we pray, we’re not luxury travelers sippin’ champagne on the Amalfi Coast.
We’re Morgan and Prachi. Two adorably loudmouthed mortals ready to Hulk-smash those travel myths to show you the good, the bad, and the ugly. On AlienEating, you won’t see us dancing in Madrid one day and hiking in Tanzania the next. Instead, it’ll be us jet-lagged while eating 7-11 and charging our phones to book a last minute ticket home.
Hot out of college, we shared the same dread of the white picket fence life: graduate, meet a soulmate, work 9-5, have two and a half kids, get a mom bod, join the PTA, and then die.
So with a combined $80,000 in student loans and the freshman 15 still in tow, we both got ESL certified and moved to South Korea.
Two years later we’re best friends just laughing through every paycheck blown and every smack-down life gives us.
We started AlienEating with the hopes of showing you that travel isn’t always about getting that perfect IG-worthy bikini shot or “spiritual” journeys across Bali.
It’s about forced problem-solving, bringing together different perspectives, and realizing that things exist outside of the bubble you live in.
So sit back, relax, and sip on a G&T as we strip away the filters, bring down the saturation, and press cancel on the hot bods of the travel industry.
