1342 Mauna Loa Hwy, Kaunakakai, HI 96748, USA
A visit to the Mooakai Plumerias in Molokai is perfect for those that love flowers. For $25 you can stroll the acres and acres of Plumeria trees, then pick your own flowers for a lesson in Lei making and the importance of the Lei in the Hawaiian...
Hanalei Bay, Hawaii, USA
Kauai's Hanalei Bay may be one of the most magical places on the planet. I swear some of the locals start paddleboarding at sunrise and don't come back in until sundown. I've paddleboarded in calm waters, but this was my first time trying to...

Fernandina Island, Ecuador
The lagoon near Punta Espinoza is a little slice of heaven, especially if you're a sea turtle looking for a place to catch a few rays. We saw no fewer than a dozen turtles playing in the calm waters of the lagoon, a far cry from the tumultuous...
Fernandina Island, Ecuador
Brilliant sunsets and sunrises chased us around the Galapagos, with one of the best falling upon us on the gorgeous island of Fernandina. A great sunset on its own is one thing, but when combined with a truly stunning landscape, it becomes...
