Who is Lexie Limitless?
Lexie Limitless is an American travel influencer who is active on YouTube, Instagram, TikTok and other social platforms. Her real name is Lexie Alford, and she was born on 10th April 1998 in Nevada City, California, United States. She is known for posting aesthetic pictures and sharing travel tips on her social media.
Early life of Lexie Limitless
Lexie was meant to be a traveller from the day she was born. Since she was a little child, she had always looked up to her mother. While her mother didn't go to college, she had an inspiring life which she built for herself. At the age of 19, she opened her own travelling agency and managed to make it profitable. Because of her mom's agency, Lexie began travelling at a very young age. At the age of 2, she got her first-ever passport, so she was ready to leave any time. When she turned four years old, Lexie took her first trip to Ireland alongside her parents. This has helped her a lot as she got used to planes and flying altogether at a young age.
Lexie visited a few countries with her parents, but the one trip that changed her thinking about life happened when she was 12 years old. Her parents took her to the Great Ocean Road in Australia, where they all travelled in a rented car. On their trip, they encountered a few groups of teenagers and young adults, who lived in a van, surfed for fun and enjoyed their lives to the fullest. At the time, Lexie first started thinking about travelling the world on her own and exploring foreign countries. Since then, she often daydreamed about living a free life without the need to study or work.
Education of Lexie Limitless
Even though Lexie often thought about care-free life without any obligations, her parents weren't going to let her do anything she wanted. They made sure that she got proper education by signing her to Nevada Union High School in California. Lexie studied hard and met the requirements for the California High School Proficiency Examination (known as CHSPE). That allowed her to graduate at the age of 16, which was the end of her sophomore year. Lexie immediately sent an application to Sierra College Nevada County Campus in Grass Valey, California. She was accepted and decided to study Behavioural and Social Sciences. Lexie graduated with an associate's degree in Behavioural and Social Sciences with honours when she was just 18 years old.
Early career of Lexie Limitless
Once she began thinking about a life full of careless travelling, Lexie started making preparations. While there wasn't much she could do at 12 years old, Lexie decided to at least save some money. Luckily, her father supported her dream and wanted her to achieve it one day. Because of that, he got her a job at his construction sites. Lexie could only help with cleaning and painting so she wouldn't get hurt, but she enjoyed it. Once she proved to be useful and hard-working, her father's friends hired her on their construction sites as well. Helping her father wasn't the only thing Lexie did to earn money. For example, she held a lemonade stand with her friend in the summer, and it was profitable.
When Lexie turned 15 years old, her mum agreed to train her at her travelling agency. Since she was very smart and studied in her free time, Lexie worked herself up until she became a certified travel agent. Since driving a car is a useful skill while travelling and working, Lexie got her driver's license at the age of 16 years old. Just a while after, her parents bought her an old car. Lexie didn't wait and got her first real job as an airport chauffeur. Lexie highly profited from living at her parent's house rent-free and attending a community college. This way, she saved some money and didn't have any student loans after graduation.
Lexie Limitless visiting every country
After graduating from college, Lexie decided to step up her game. She was tired of daydreaming, planning and imagining. She was ready to see the world. Since she saved most of her work money, she had enough to travel for a whole year without the need to work. One night at her friend's house, Lexie decided to count every country she had visited so far. While the majority was with her parents, Lexie found out that she had already been to 72 countries. Since it sounded like a lot, Lexie and her friend began researching world records connected to travelling. They found out that the youngest person who visited every country in the world was 24 years old. At that moment, Lexie decided to visit every country in the world and break the world record.
Once she decided, Lexie began planning for her travels. At first, she mapped all the countries she visited with her parents and crossed them off. Second, she made up a plan to visit the remaining countries in an order that would make it all easier. Since she was a trained and licensed travel agent, Lexie knew how to book cheap accommodations and flights. She also had access to some discounts, which made it all possible.
Lexie Limitless – The Guinness World Record
Lexie began her journey in 2016 when she booked her first flight. She had high hopes and the support of her whole family. Even though it was tough at times, and she encountered a few obstacles, Leslie broke the world record. Her last location was Mozambique, and she set foot on land on 4th October 2019. Of course, breaking the world record wasn't nearly as easy as it seemed. In order to make it official, Lexie had to submit almost 7000 pages of passport records, photos and documentation to the comity. On top of that, Lexie had to revisit almost 30 countries she had already visited with her parents because she didn't keep the needed documents. Probably the hardest part was to get at least two people from each country to testify that she met them in said country. But after submitting all the paperwork, Lexie had officially become the Guinness World Record holder at 21 years old.
Lexie Limitless on social media
Even though Lexie created a YouTube channel in 2017, she began posting in 2019 after breaking the record. Since she wanted to keep all the memories, Lexie filmed hours of footage on her trips, and she decided to share it with the world. Once she had some free time, Lexie began editing and cutting her personal videos so they would be suited for posting on social media. Lexie found her followers when she began posting stories from different countries and sharing her experiences. Since she considers herself a foodie, Lexie shared many videos trying out different cuisines. Her most popular video is I Joined a BILLION Muslims in FASTING For a Day, with over 1,5 million views. In videos like this, Lexie often explained the bases of foreign cultures and honoured them.
While many of her videos were light-hearted or educational, Lexie opened up about some of the more serious topics. When trying to break the world record, Lexie spent over two years researching the possibilities of stepping foot in North Korea. The borders of North Korea have been shut to American visitors for a few years, and they weren't going to open just for Lexie to finish her challenge. After messaging with travel agencies and authorities, she found out that the only way to count North Korea was to get among the very limited number of travellers allowed to visit North Korea. She was only allowed to step one step away from the border, but it counted. Leslie edited her footage into a very educational video about her trip to North Korea, which became one of the most popular on her channel.

She also profits from a few advertisements on her platforms.
