Palau: At the Edge of Paradise

 

Sunset PPRWe Said Go Travel Newsletter 34: Sept. 19, 2013

Two weeks in Palau: The Edge of Paradise

Our time in Palau was filled with natural wonders and outdoor adventures like kayaking, snorkeling, double rainbows, incredible sunsets, Milky Way (below) and UNESCO sites: the Rock Islands(see beach photo below) and Jellyfish Lake. I loved diving Blue Corner where I was hooked into a rock at 47 feet and literally flew like a kite in the current as gray tip sharks sailed by. A giant thank you to Molly, Jayvon, Alu, Kadoi and Marvin from the Palau Visitors Authority for an incredible trip. We are working on several articles and movies to share all the sights and great hotels with you as soon as possible. Our new friends, Annette, Dean, Donna, John and Terry, made the trip even better!

SAVE THE DATEOct 3rd in Oahu, Oct 16th in Los Angeles and Oct 23rd for our online webinar with the University of Pennsylvania. We hope to see you or your friends at one of our upcoming events!
