Salt Pier Bonaire

This is — salty tear — my very last post from Bonaire. The good news? I saved the best for last. Man am I going to miss blogging about this beautiful, lesser-known Caribbean isle! But back to that salty tear bit. Salt and scuba go hand in hand on Bonaire. Salt is the island’s primary export…

#Bonaire2Bahamas: A Caribbean Bachelorette thumbnail

Happy 2016, everyone! While I have some fun New Years-y posts coming up, I thought we could start with something nice and easy while we nurse the last vestiges of our two-day hangovers. (What? That’s just me?) Something like a Caribbean bachelorette party. We’re all still in party mode after all, right? Bride-to-be in Bonaire When…

Bonaire Above Sea Level: Seven Adventures for Non-Divers thumbnail

Surely by now you get the picture — Bonaire is a paradise for scuba divers, consistently rated as one of the top diving destinations in the world.

Bonaire by Electric Car

Even the crustiest of divers have to dry out sometime — even if it is only the mandated last day of their trip. (Divers have to wait a certain number of hours before flying after they hang up their fins, which leads many divers to consider the last day of a dive vacation their “dry day.”)…

Packing for Bonaire

What’s that you hear in the distance? The cry of a small blonde blogger being crushed under the weight of her excess baggage? The clatter of non-travel sized toiletries hiding from the TSA? The crush of a bulging carry on being shoved into a tiny overhead bin? Must be time for another overpacking confessional slash exhaustive edition of Inside My…

Diving Bonaire: House Reefs and Resort Rides thumbnail

The vast majority of the world’s great dive sites are accessed by boat. That’s all good and fun, but had to admit I’m the kind of freewheelin’ girl who prefers to don scuba gear on my own schedule, and not necessarily be tied down to a dive shop’s pier departure time. This is part of what…
