Alice Yeh

Hi, I’m Alice! I’m a yogi and a semi-professional wanderer. In my “off” time, I work as a tech sales executive and currently live in San Francisco. I have been lucky to also call Philadelphia, New York, Hong Kong, London, and Singapore home. As a result, I have visited 50+ countries so far and still counting! My love for travel is deeply rooted in my curiosity and desire to learn. Traveling and growing up as an Asian American minority in the US has given me a huge appreciation and awareness for those different from me. Therefore, no matter where I am, I make an effort to learn about and experience other cultures. I especially love to taste the local foods and drinks because who wouldn’t? :)
