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 . 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!

Featured Blogs

Looking for new travel sites to ad to your reading roster? Searching for the perfect gift for the wanderluster in your life? Each month from here forward, I’ll be sharing an inspiring selection of travel blogs, travel projects and travel shops. Not only are these fellow entrepreneurs following their passions and creating beautiful content, they’re also supporting Meihoukai in Wanderland by advertising in my sidebar this month — please support them back by checking out their sites and cheering them along.

Introducing Meihoukai 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 .

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 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 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 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 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 to those heading to China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. I know who’d call if I was heading in that direction!

    Ahhh I love a good roadtrip and a US one is definitely on my list. It’s always so much better when you have the comfort of an RV too!

    I love Photo A because the wide open road is so reflective of your road trip!

    Image (a) give you a sense of blending colors in nature around you … where hugging desert plants with solid mountains… The road runs away to carry us the expected and unexpected adventures sometimes ..

    It’s impossible to pick a favorite! I’m from CO and did a very similar solo road trip with my dog when she was just a puppy and it was the best idea I had all year! We slept in the back of my SUV so slightly less comfortable than a JUCY. We had a pretty blank itinerary and just let the road take us. I didn’t make it to Antelope Canyon though and The Wave is also at the top of my bucket list. Another trip is needed. This time with a friend and a JUCY 🙂 Can’t wait to see the rest of these pics!

    • Meihoukai

      Ah, I would have loved to have had Tucker along with me on this trip! We’re doing a little Cali road trip together soon and I can’t wait 🙂 Love traveling with my dog!

    As much as I love photo E (it’s awesome how she’s standing in the middle of the flag), I choose photo A because the landscape is majestic.

      I can’t believe it took me five trips to Vegas to catch on. Definitely planning to return next time I’m in the area and devote a whole day to it!

    I love them all! Did you take some special photography course?

    • Meihoukai
      September 10 2015

      Thanks Tereza! I’ve taken photography classes for fun in high school and then went to university for an art degree and so took photography classes as a part of that. Plus I just shoot all the time 🙂 You know what they say about practice!
