Meet the Team...Alexandra

Born in the New York City area, Alexandra Tyson grew up moving around the country as her parents followed their dreams. Alexandra’s Dad gave her a love for her heritage and the U.S. Navy and her mom gave her a love for exploring and travel. Alexandra made the choice to serve in the Navy and became an Aviation Hydraulics Mechanic. She met her husband, Chris, while they both were on active duty. While Alexandra turned her focus to motherhood, Chris’ career had them changing duty stations often. Married and a mom of three, Alexandra earned her B.Ed. in Elementary Education, Magna Cum Laude. She also had a Master’s Certificate in European History which comes in quite handy as tours and groups explore all the hidden corners in Europe.

Chris and Alexandra chose to use his career in the Navy as a springboard to parent their three kids through experience as they intentionally traveled and lived overseas in Atsugi, Japan. After about 20 years in the classroom and tons of frequent flier miles, Alexandra is sharing her experiences and travel know-how with you through Babcia and YiaYia Travel The World.

These days, Alexandra is wearing lots of hats. In addition to teaching and traveling, you can find her helping fellow travelers as a:


-Small group travel coordinator and host

-Travel Storyteller

-Travel Creator

-Travel and Education Speaker
