Sailing aboard Infinity

Sailing aboard Infinity

After spending a week cruising around the Yasawa Islands in Fiji, Infinity and its crew set sail for Vanuatu. The passage took only four days and we anchored beside the country’s most southern island, Aneityum. The passage was much more fun than our experiences from New Zealand to Tonga and Tonga to Fiji. With a […]

Held hostage in Fiji!

Held hostage in Fiji!

I would probably get slapped if I were to say I was annoyed that we got stuck in Fiji the past week, as there are much worse places to be forced to be against your will! Fiji is great, but I wanted to be in Vanuatu by now! In my last post Help Me Save […]

Scuba Diving Savusavu, Fiji

Scuba Diving Savusavu, Fiji

I have always heard that Fiji is a great place for scuba diving but I had done zero research about the islands prior to arriving. Traveling without a guidebook or map, I honestly had no idea what island I was on as I roamed the streets of downtown Savusavu. As luck would have it, we […]

It’s MANTA Time!

My eyes darted back and forth across the deep blue water, each time a little too late – catching only the ending splash. Mobula rays were putting on a show in the water off the coast of Cabo San Lucas, eliciting a chorus of “OOOHHS” and “AHHHHS” from the boats and jet skies that stopped […]

The Gilis

From Ubud, Sara and I took a shuttle bus east to Padangbai, Bali, where we boarded the Perama boat the only boat that offers service directly to the Gilis from Bali. The five hour boat ride was less than luxurious but we were able to enjoy the beautiful scenery as we went up the west […]

Perhentian Islands: where I found solitude and scuba

Perhentian Islands: where I found solitude and scuba

Throughout my travels I have really pushed myself to try new things and have set out to discover all that I enjoy and what makes me happy. Perhaps the most surprising realization I have made in the past year is just how much I enjoy being alone. As a “Type A” personality and someone who […]

Diving in Koh Tao

Diving in Koh Tao

NOTE TO SELF: Do not travel by boat or in the hot sun after drinking from a bucket at the 1/2 Moon Party! I wasn’t feeling 100% at breakfast the morning after the 1/2 Moon Party. I wished that I could crawl back into bed; however, we had to check out, get to the pier […]
