We’re going to Palau!

Seriously, how many people you know have been to Palau?  I can count them in one hand, and all of those I met here in Manila!

Before moving to Manila, Palau wasn’t even on my top places to visit.  To be honest, I never gave it one thought. 

But since moving to Manila we started a new hobby, which puts Palau right on our radar:  DIVING!

Considered one of the best places in the world for diving, this little Pacific Island will be fun to explore!  Plus, it’s a direct flight from Manila, so why not take advantage of it?  Sure, it’s costing us a small fortune, but it’s truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

So next April, we’re staying in this beach…



And we will be doing 5 days of diving, hopefully seeing amazing sea life like dolphins, turtles, sharks and manta rays, but we also have a trip scheduled to the Jellyfish Lake!

Sounds horrifying?  But it isn’t!  Since the jellyfish at the lake have no predators,

the jellyfish have evolved and they don’t have stingers.  So you swim with thousands of jellyfish in a clear blue water lake and not have to worry about them hurting you! 


The first time I ever heard of the Jellyfish Lake was from the “Where the Hell is Matt” videos (video #2 I think?).  Remember those?  And it was one of those places that looked totally cool, but I totally knew I’d never get there.  HA!  I thought wrong!

This nomad life is a lot of fun.
