Well, the title kind of says it all. I have to admit, I didn’t love Jerusalem. Those of you who read my initial Middle East trip announcement may recall that I already wasn’t feeling very drawn there, even in the planning stages. Yet, when you travel to Israel, you just kinda have to. It must be in some […]

Confused on where we are? I’m taking this moment while my travels are grounded to care for my mom to catch up on my black hole of un-blogged content. Here, I’m digging back into my trip to Bali in March 2017 with a review of Institute of Code — which I know from your messages on social […]

I’m a proud PADI AmbassaDiver + this post is brought to you by PADI. After three exotic weeks exploring Egypt (and alliterating, apparently), it was time for one final adventure: a camel diving safari to the remote Bedouin settlement of Ras Abu Galum. I know what you’re thinking. How the heck do you get a dive mask on […]

It’s no secret I had a magical time underwater in Sharm El Sheikh. But what about onboard the boat? Liveaboard reviews can be tough to find, and I feel like it’s the kind of thing you really want an honest personal assessment of — considering there’s no escape once you’re onboard! So I’m writing the review […]

If you’ve been reading Alex in Wanderland for a while, you know one thing for certain — packing light is not one of my strengths. But never has it been more important than when boarding a liveaboard dive boat! Tight quarters in the cabins, a specialized sport involved, no access to stores to replace anything you […]

Thank you all so much for your patience as I’ve taken a hiatus from blogging to focus on supporting my family through my mother’s terminal cancer diagnosis. Time feels more precious than ever but I have been missing writing and the connection it makes me feel to my mom, also a writer by trade — and, […]
