I’m Obsessed with Universal Orlando Resort — And I’m Giving Away a Trip! thumbnail

Hey guys! I'm jumping out of chronological order today because I want to share with you an AMAZING giveaway (my biggest ever) totally exclusive to Alex in Wanderland readers. I'm too excited to hold off any longer! In late 2016, an exciting offer landed in my inbox: be part of Universal Orlando Resort's innovative Blog Squad, a…

Eight Days in La La Land thumbnail

Yeah, the helicopter ride was pretty epic. But what else did I get up to for more than eight days of visiting my dad in LA? Plenty! But with no guests to entertain and no new residents to settle in, it was a very low key one -- one almost like a local might live. We…

Father’s Day from Above: A Helicopter Ride over Los Angeles thumbnail

When you travel or live abroad long term, it's inevitable that you're going to miss a lot of the important little holidays and events that you don't really realize are so special until you don't have the choice to be around for them.

But lean in, because I’m about to spill what feels like a major secret. The…

The Travel Trio Reunited in Martha’s Vineyard thumbnail

We've partied in Miami, adventured all over Bonaire, and chilled out in Aruba -- our blogging trio gets together whenever we can. But Kristin, Angie and I don't get to see each other nearly as much as we'd like to, which would ideally be like, oh I don't know, every day or so. (Which luckily is…

Boston, Briefly thumbnail

When I wrap up a huge trip like my six week journey through Brazil, I usually like to schedule at least a week of downtown before picking up and jetting off again on my next adventure. Sometimes though, it just doesn't work that way. Like when I flew back from São Paulo, booked it up to…
