Central America Tops and Flops thumbnail

This time last year, I was flying back to the USA after four months spent in one of my favorite pockets of planet earth: Central America. Over the course of five different trips, I’ve now been lucky enough to visit each of the seven countries making up this sub-continent — some of them multiple times! A…

The Great Escape: Month 45 Roundup thumbnail

Note: I know there’s been plenty of recapping going on around these parts lately! I’m still fairly behind on my monthly roundups, but it is kind of fun to have a little blast from the past, no? Lots of juicy details inside! . Month 45 was, quite simply, amazing. One of the overall happiest periods of…

Four Years of Travel

June is a pretty big month around these parts — the 9th (yup, this post is a tad late, what else is new) marked four whole years in Wanderland. Four years since the day I took off from New York on a one-way ticket. Fourty-eight months since alexinwanderland.com went live. One thousand, four hundred and sixty…

My previous post focused on what I’d consider the pieces of the festival that fit into that light shape —…

Equilibrio Festival • El Salvador: Under The Sun thumbnail

Festivals, it seems, have become somewhat of a passion of mine. I’ve made my way now to several around the world – Burning Man in the Nevada desert, Tomorrowland in a Belgian neverland, Sunjam on the shores of Honduras, Mardi Gras in the heart of New Orleans, and Batabano in the streets of Grand Cayman, to…

Beachfront Bliss: Kicking Back in El Cuco thumbnail

El Salvador is kind of the pre-glass slipper Cinderella of Central America. Most backpackers bypass it entirely, and those that do pause to get their passports stamped tend to stay for just a few days, most often to surf along the Costa del Bálsamo or to take in the colonial Ruta de las Flores. I have…
