Down where it’s betta! 🐠🦑🐡
One of my favorite moments from the past 12 days onboard Samambaia Liveaboard with Liveaboard! I did 28 dives between Raja Ampat and the Banda Sea— some with countless sea snakes (10x more venomous than a cobra)! We dived at night and counted shooting stars on our way back to the boat. I saw more fish than I’ve ever seen in a single reef— with giant schools of jack fish and bat fish and barracuda. And even got to see my favorite— manta rays! Needless to say, this is the holy grail of diving and I’m one happy little mermaid🧜🏼‍♀️

What to Pack for a Week in The Bahamas

Fantasizing about this tropical getaway...

Greetings from Paradise 🌴💙
I’ve spent the past 10 days at sea in Indonesia aboard the Samambaia Liveaboard in the remote islands of RajaAmpat and the Banda Sea— completely disconnected and, predominantly, unda da sea! This was my first “liveaboard” scuba diving cruise and it has been absolutely magical. Thanks to Liveaboard for the trip of my dreams!

Photos from The Blonde Abroad's post

I'm so excited to announce the launch of my NEW travel sandals in partnership with Cocobelle! You may have noticed that I have worn the same pair of tan sandals on many of my trips over the years (see some places I've taken them below!) The truth is, I found them about four years ago at a market and, while they were literally falling apart, I loved that they went with every outfit and made packing for trips a breeze.
I'd been dreaming of designing a similar pair, the perfect "travel sandals," so I partnered with Cocobelle to carefully create a high-quality, lightweight tan sandal that's perfect for female travelers. These beautiful leather sandals are handcrafted in Italy and will last you trip after trip! I'm so incredibly excited to share them with you -- I know you'll love the style, color and comfort they add to any outfit! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
We will be running a pre-order period starting today through May 15th, so reserve your pair before they're gone!
