Today is my anniversary: One year in the life of a full time traveler, and one year in the life of this blog.
One June 9th, 2011, I watched the Manhattan skyline disappear into the distance as I flew towards Scotland and the unknown. An hour earlier, hunched over my laptop using airport WiFi, I launched Alex in Wanderland.

For my final Ibiza post, I wanted to share my lasting impressions and ideas about an island that was previously shrouded in mystery for me. However, I wouldn’t dare call myself an insider after a mere one week trip. I can’t tell you the most beautiful beaches, since I only saw a few.

Seven months is far too long to go without breathing...

Ibiza has always lived in my mind as a mythical island full of beautiful, trendy people partying all night in world-class nightclubs and lounging all day on sun drenched, blue water beaches. So when some of Mark’s friends asked us to join them on a holiday to Spain during my six weeks in Scotland, we jumped at the chance. I was looking forward to getting to know some of Mark’s oldest friends better,...

Sorry I’m late in posting last week’s Photo Of The Week! My excuse involves a red eye flight followed by a red eye bus followed by… sleep.
As promised, this week’s photo comes from my (yet to be blogged about) trip to Ibiza, Spain! I usually try to pick a photo that sums up the week, and so this one was a challenge as Ibiza has so many different facets, from the megaclubs to the...
