Spending the Night in America’s Only Underwater Hotel: The Jules Lodge in Key Largo, Florida thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’m recapping my summer of 2018, which included this trip to Florida in July. In other news: we’ve added new Wander Women Retreats — don’t miss them!

Playing Tour Guide on Koh Tao: Snorkeling, Songkran, and Sunsets thumbnail

Confused on where we are? I’m taking this moment while my travels are grounded to care for my mom to catch up on my black hole of un-blogged content. Here, I’m covering my time in Thailand from March through May of 2017. My apologies for any confusion with the timeline, and thanks for sticking with me. Ask anyone…

Diving the Red, Dead, and Med: A Guide to Diving Israel’s Three Seas thumbnail

Israel: it doesn’t exactly spring to mind when considering the world’s top dive destinations. It doesn’t have world-class reefs, fleets of liveaboards, or wildly abundant marine life. But it does have something I haven’t found anywhere else in the world: the ability to, if the conditions are right, dive three seas in as many days. The…
