A (video) taste of the forbidden fruit

A (video) taste of the forbidden fruit

It may not be forbidden to go to Palmyra but it is pretty hard to get access to. Aside from a select number of marine scientists, this isn't an island most people are able to visit. Lucky for us, Katie took some great video while she was there so we can all feel like we have been there! Check out her notes below to find some of the best nuggets in there, and find out what you are looking for! 

Paradise Moments

Paradise Moments

Mother Nature is by far my favorite artist/entertainer.  If in the right place (physically and mentally), one can notice that she is like a doting admirer and is constantly spoiling us by showering us with tiny gifts throughout each day. Here, I call them "Paradise Moments." The trick is recognizing and appreciating them for what they are as they come. This morning I sat on North Beach before the sunrise watching as lightning glittered across the sky.

Say YES!!

Say YES!!

Have you ever hesitated when someone asked you on an adventure? Thought to yourself, "that sounds great but (insert lame excuse here)" and then turned down the opportunity? One of the mantras of Wayfare Collective is "Say Yes!!" because, in the end, you usually end up with a win. A trip I took not too long ago is one of many examples of successfully defeating the "yeah but" within and getting handsomely rewarded with what may be the most epic experiences an ocean lover like me may have. (To give you fair warning, this post contains some images of animals on the hunt. If you are a tender heart that cries when kittens get stuck in trees, you may not love what you're about to read/see.)
