Photo Slideshow: Palau

Photo Slideshow: Palau The Republic of Palau may be my new stereotypical tropical paradise. It has beaches, SCUBA, adventure sports, and plenty of trees to tie a hammock to at the end of the day. What more do you need really? Oh, right, rusty World War II heritage disintegrating back into the jungle and thousands … Continue reading »

New Territories, New Temple

Another overcast day in Hong Kong, so I finally got out to that New Territories temple I pass on the airport bus every time I come to town. It makes me feel almost like being back in China for a day! —— Planning to spend time in Hong Kong? Keep in mind that accommodation can … Continue reading »

Warm in the Waters of Micronesia

Yap underwater is not just about the Manta Ray, fortunately. With days of snorkeling from my beach camp and diving with Beyond the Reef I was lucky to spot a pretty healthy variety of species, which speaks more to Yap’s marine diversity than it does to me powers of perception.
