Am I Dreaming?

If you love pristine beaches, bluer-than-blue water, emerald green jungles and the opportunity to take a dip with thousands of gentle jellyfish, the Rock Islands (also known as Chalbacheb) in Palau should be on your list of dream trips. The group of more than 250 limestone and coral formations is spread in an 18-square-mile area, and while most of the islands are uninhabited, they’re a big draw for visitors keen to snorkel, dive, swim or just sit back and relax as your boat floats along. When you go, plan on making a stop at the island of Eil Malk to experience Jellyfish Lake – an inland lake where you can plunge into the blue-green water and swim with countless golden jellyfish without worries of being stung.

Gina’s first solo trip abroad, at age 16, changed her life. Since then, travel has been her passion and it’s her mission to convince others that they really can make travel a part of their lives. These days, she seeks out destinations where she can indulge her taste for adventure and shop for additions to her textile collection. Some of her favorite experiences from recent trips have included eating bun cha in Hanoi and feeding hyenas in Ethiopia.

Gina’s Favorite Travel Tip: When traveling abroad, learn enough of the language to be polite (hello, thank you, goodbye) and to shop and haggle (numbers and colors).
