Greetings from The Silver State. The past week brought me from Nevada to Arizona to Utah and back to Arizona again, all from the seat of a JUCY camper. I feel like a whole new world has been opened up to me — the world of RV travel! I loved every moment of this trip that took in wonders like The Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, and Valley of Fire — I only wish we had twice as long in which to take it in. I have the most epic posts to write from this adventure!
Had we not had a pretty important event looming in Northern Nevada, we may have changed our plans to extend our road trip a bit longer. But turns out, the other 61,998 participants of Burning Man weren’t willing to rearrange their plans for us. Rude, right?! I write this now from Reno, and tomorrow I’ll be bound for Black Rock City. I’ll be off the grid for the week so apologies in advance for the delay in answering your comments and emails. I do have some fun posts planned, kicking off the coverage of another road trip I took this summer — one around Upstate New York! I can’t wait to see what you guys think when I return to the land of WiFi and 3G.
Wishing you a wonderful week, wherever you may be!

Introducing Alex in Wanderland’s featured bloggers for September!
California native Justine is a fellow Southeast Asia addict. Having spent the last year as an expat based in Jakarta, she’s used the city as a launch pad and covered destinations I know and love and destinations I’m still drooling over all over at Travel Lush.
Why I Love This Blog: Right now, I love this blog because Justine just moved to one of my favorite cities in the world — Phnom Penh! Can’t wait to see what she gets up to in Cambodia’s capital.
This American couple packed up and moved across the pond to London, where they now spend their free time exploring in Britain and beyond. But that doesn’t mean Drive on The Left is limited to Europe – one peek at their destination page will show you they’ve been driving down all kinds of roads.
Why I Love This Blog: Their travel photography is top notch, and their site design displays luxuriously large photos – and yes, I’m going to mention the fact that we had the same designer yet again!
As a Melbourne-based blogger with a passion for marketing, Genevieve manages to balance a full time job with a life of travel. Her blog The Wanderbug chronicles her travels in Australia and beyond — far beyond! She also produces useful city guides and travel itineraries for fellow wanderers.
Why I Love This Blog: Genevieve isn’t just a writer — she’s also an artist selling hand-illustrated travel maps of your favorite destinations.
Richelle is the go-to girl for information on teaching and studying abroad, specifically in China — the country she’s called home for the past couple years. Her blog Adventures Around Asia follows her extensive travels around Asia as well as her adventures in her new home away from home.
Why I Love This Blog: Richelle offers travel planning services to those heading to China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. I know who’d call if I was heading in that direction!
