About Me


Hi! I’m Alexandrea Sumuel, and I’m so glad you’re here!

I’m a proud Virginia Beach, VA, native who “retired” to small-town life in Smithfield, VA. My academic journey led me to Old Dominion University, where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology and Business Management. With a professional backdrop of over 17 years, I’ve dedicated my expertise to a Norfolk-based law firm. In my current role, I oversee the company’s daily activities as the Director of Operations, previously serving as the Director of Marketing.

A quarter Japanese, I’d love to take an extended trip to Japan one day and learn more about my family’s heritage. I am a wife, daughter, and auntie and I value family most.  

I find joy in crafting detailed itineraries before my travels to ensure I capture everything a destination has to offer. My interests span from lounging on sunny beaches and exploring popular tourist spots to off-the-beaten-path activities, taking scenic drives, aimless strolls, trying new food, and diving into the local scene.

I am a nationally syndicated travel writer whose mission is to help you find the perfect vacation destination!
