This is a quick 20-minute mindfulness meditation to help you disconnect from the everyday bustle and take a few moments to appreciate the NOW. If you do not drink either coffee or tea, then any drink is fine. Coffee and tea are drinks we take for granted. Which makes them ideal subjects for meditation. Alexander will guide you into appreciating your beverage in a way you never thought you could. You will be returning to your day feeling more present, grateful and loved. And you will enjoy your coffee that little bit more!
Alexander wants to live in a world filled with appreciation for other cultures, free travel and guacamole as a global currency (we’re allowed to dream right?!). “Storytelling has always been a passion of mine. Whether it’s in the form of acting, writing or showing people around my captivating city. It feels great to express my passions in so many different ways” Alex says, while sipping on a decaf soy latte (a very common beverage in Melbourne, also known as Australia's coffee capital). Alexander believes that it would be a waste and disservice to his fellow humans to not show them around his backyard (well, not his actual backyard, but you get the picture). He’s dedicated to sharing his city’s beauty and history, and once and for all proving to people that kangaroos don’t just bounce around everywhere. Alexander has been running tours for the last 4 years, with his most popular tour being Melbourne’s Hidden Penguins (there you go, saved you a trip to Antarctica!). When he is not touring, Alexander works as an actor, filmmaker and blog writer.
Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Melbourne with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.
The tour will last about 30 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from Melbourne. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.
We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.
The majority of your tip goes directly to support the channel, while the rest helps Heygo continue to build a place that brings the world closer together.
Reserve your spot by selecting a time to book. Once done, you’ll be able to see your reservations on your Trips page and we’ll send you an email confirmation with a link to join the tour.

Another great 1st from Alex, who is constantly coming up with new and exciting ideas despite being currently in lockdown! First we had meditations, then a chocolate meditation, and now a coffee one. A great reminder to be mindful and to appreciate all the good thing we have in our lives.

A short but very sweet mindfulness session. Interestingly let by Alex as we explored how our ‘drinks’ ‘mugs’ etc actually reached us, how the taste varied etc! Guess I should have read introduction of ‘tour’ as was disappointed with this ‘shortened’ version.
