People frequently ask me, “Where’s your favorite place in the world?” After 25 years of exploring the world–from the Arctic to Malaysia, Palau is definitely one of my treasured favorites. Naturally, the next question is inevitably, “Why?” Visualize vividly blue and green gin-clear water, accented with towering vibrant-green jungles. Add to the mix a Scuba divers paradise, amidst a culture with intact ancient morays and customs, accented with welcoming smiles and laughter.
