Celebrating Earth Week! 8 Ways to Live + Travel Plastic-Free

Khao Sok National Park
So, some of you may know I had amazing intentions of a whole week full of conservation-minded content. Unfortunately, cellular data service and wifi signals in Egypt have both been far weaker and rarer than I prepared for – oops! It’s alright though, every week is Earth Week around Alex in Wanderland — stay tuned for […]

Once-in-a-Lifetime Luxury at the Caribbean’s First Over-The-Water Villas

Jamaica Mon
So, you guys already know I’m obsessed with Jamaica, right? Many times on this blog, I’ve listed a road trip around this reggae-and-rum-soaked isle as one of my bucket list trips, and I’ve spent hours daydreaming over guidebooks and travel blogs and trying to manifest the perfect moment to make it happen. So far, that moment […]

Celebrating Earth Week! A Guide to Carbon Offsets for Travelers

Carbon Offsets for Travelers
Guys, I am crazy in love. No, this isn’t a confessional post about my personal life (but those are fun too). I’m in love with this planet we are so lucky to exist in. Like, not to get too Double Rainbow Guy on you here, but Earth is the coolest place ever! Have you seen the […]

Total Travel Disasters: Lost License Edition

Oahu
Since I started my little “Total Travel Disasters” series, I’ve highlighted travel meltdowns in which I was, more or less, an unwitting victim. Getting screwed with a broken camper rental. Being targeted by a bed and breakfast tyrant. Finding ourselves on the wrong side of a battle with a rental car in Britain. This post is […]

Feeling like Ohana with Kaimana Divers in Oahu

Scuba diving on Oahu
Love to dive? Nab one of the last three spots on my Wander Women: Dive + Yoga Retreat in Koh Tao, Thailand! After kissing my land-lubber boyfriend goodbye in Maui and heading back to Oahu solo, the first thing I wanted to do? Get straight underwater. After an excellent experience with Kaimana Divers four years prior, […]

It’s Here! Introducing The Wanderland Guide to Koh Tao!

If you’d thought I hit my exciting announcement quota on the first half of 2018 already, have you got another thing coming. Koh Tao is a pretty small island — literally just eight square miles — so when the lightbulb first went on that I wanted to share my Koh Tao with the world in a […]

Perfect Paia: The Surfer Town Soul of Maui

Paia
If my recent Maui coverage has made anything clear, it’s this: I’m an East Maui kind of girl. And if there’s one town that I personally consider the soul of the island, it’s unassuming little blink-and-you’ll-miss-it Paia. This funky new-age surfer town is essentially the hub of Maui’s North Shore, despite its diminutive size. There’s boutique […]

A Sip of Aloha: Drinking Local at Maui’s Winery, Brewery, and Distilleries

A booze snob, I am not. I tend to grab whatever white wine is on sale and I’ll generally plan to shrug at bottom shelf liquor as long as my ever-increasing-with-age hangovers allow — I’m a classy girl, I know. But I make a big exception when I’m traveling, in which case I’m all about drinking […]

Hostel Crush: Aloha Surf Hostel

Aloha Surf Hostel Review
A hostel, in Hawaii? I know, it might seem crazy at first for an island more famous for its five star resorts and luxury condos. But if my four day camping trip around the Hana Highway taught us anything, it should be that sometimes Maui’s most unusual accommodation choices are its most memorable. I actually first […]
