Sossusvlei, Namibia
January 62019

We’d planned a trip to Mala Mala in June, and if we were going all the way to Africa, we figured we might as well combine it with somewhere new. Looking at the calendar, our trip fell right around the new moon, so we decided to add a few days in Sossusvlei, Namibia (which is known for phenomenal night sky). Read more…

Wakatobi has been on our list for a while, but the timing has never quite worked.

Malapascua
April 302017

We had such a fabulous time at NAD, that we asked them for their expert opinion on where to go for a week in April. Our criteria was sunshine, warm water, easy diving, and a place that would spoil us (not in terms of spa experiences, but more about effortless private diving). They recommended Evolution Diving in Malapascua (the Philippines), and we coincidentally saw someone wearing a Malapascua shirt in the airport, so we took it as a sign and booked when we got home.
