In our final episode of the Untouched series with Alex Boylan, Kate and Alex travel to a less typical tourist destination: Haiti.
Disaster has plagued Haiti over the years, making it a potentially dangerous place for international tourists. However, Alex tells us a story of Haiti that champions the local community there. Set on the same island as the popular beach destination of the Dominican Republic, Haiti is anything but similar. With a bustling capital, heart-warming locals and serious adventure on hand, Haiti is definitely not for the faint-hearted. However, if you are a traveller which enjoys a challenge (and does thorough research beforehand) Haiti will most likely reward you with one of your best travel experiences.
Alex’s first brush with the camera began with winning the Amazing Race at 23 years old, and from there, his career has skyrocketed with work both in front of and behind the camera. Alex is above all else, an adventurer and a storyteller. Alex has filmed in almost every state in the US and over 60 countries around the world. He has hosted two number #1 shows on PBS, hosted over 100 segments on the Travel Channel and circumnavigated the world without a cent in his pocket for ‘Around the World for Free’, this is just to name a few. Alex is a passionate traveller who believes that sustainable travel is our only way forward if we are to ensure that future generations can benefit from the life-affirming experiences which travel can bring.
