After what seems like forever (and a day) I have finally launched SaltWaterGoods. If you have been following me for any stretch of time you might have seen me bring it up once or twice then *crickets*. To be honest, I was just so scared! What if you guys hate it - what if no wants it - what if, what if what if....
Sunshine, surfing, and sand... sounds like were back in Hawaii right? Try the Netherlands! The official Holland name for this amazing spot is called Scheveningen and this little corner of the Netherlands is truly a corner not to miss.
One of the best parts of traveling is seeing how other people live across the world. It opens your mind to new ways of life, and makes you appreciate the way you live even more. Rotterdam, Netherlands already has a long list of attractive adventures, but a trip to this city is truly not complete without walking into these modern apartments.
Last year was a wild year for me. If you keep up with the craziness of my life and SaltWaterVibes than you know that Rashawn and I packed up everything and set sail to travel the world! You can read more about it here. After traveling Asia and the States for a few months we decided to make one more crazy decision and move to BELGIUM!
Tomorrow marks my 23rd journey around the sun. I feel so weird about this age - and I can’t really tell you why other than the fact it makes me feel grown. 22 was all about having fun and learning to live with an attitude of gratitude. I embarked on a year of unknowns, travels, and learning a lot more than I bargained for!
The past few weeks we have explored different aspects of offshore drilling, including why we drill and what happens when it spills into our waters. But now, we’ve come to the most important part of the series: creating change.
Last week we talked about offshore drilling and oil spills: what exactly they are and why they are happening. This week however, we will be discussing why we actually need to care about this issue. Many of us remember the images like the one below surfacing the web during the BP Oil Spill. But we could not anticipate the magnitude of the effects of this event even still today, 10 years later. Let’s take a look at how from even thousands of miles away, these oil spills are affecting us all.
In this months series we will explore the direct effect of our seemingly unquenchable thirst for black gold: otherwise known as petroleum oil. This particular energy source touches our lives almost every single day and there is no doubt that the U.S. would be a very different place without it. However, oil is a limited source and unfortunately a tremendously hazardous one to marine environments when leaked. Regardless, we continue to search for vast quantities of it, which leads to today's topic: offshore drilling and oil spills in our oceans.

2017 was an epic year of travel so it only felt right to start the new year doing just that! London made number 5 on Fodor's top 20 places to ring in the new year, so it only felt right to head to The Big Smoke! You can easily get to the U.K. and London from anywhere in Europe. Depending on how far you're coming from, you may want to take a cheap flight from Ryan Air, or hop on the Bullet Train. But if your like us, we LOVE to have a car when we travel.
Last week you learned some cold hard facts about climate change and how its effecting our oceans. If you missed it you can catch up here real quick. Now that you know what the issue is, you maybe wondering how does this really effect me or why should I care?
Our first two series on Saving Blue educated you on whats really happening below our ocean surface - with thousands of tons of plastic clogging our sea to our coral bleaching and dying off - the sea needs our help. But under the surface is only half the battle here. To understand our ocean's issues and how we can help it we need to face the reality of Climate Change and how that effects big blue.
The past couple weeks we have explored the devastating effects of coral bleaching on our reefs. From marine life, to ourselves, the loss of the reefs will bring many difficult consequences for our planet in the near future. As challenging as it is to accept the idea that global coral bleaching is a result of human activity, we must embrace it and move forward with action. This week Saving Blue will be sharing what YOU can do to participate in preserving our reefs. Here’s what you can do to get started.
Last Wednesday, we explored the issue of a catastrophic event taking place right now, all over our oceans: global coral bleaching. As mentioned in last week’s post, by 2050 scientists anticipate the death of 90% of all coral reefs, worldwide. For many of us this issue is out of sight, out of mind and it is hard to imagine the loss of a species that many of us have never actually seen. But unfortunately the death of this species will have a massive global impact on both those who are near and far from our waters.
Welcome to the other Grand Canyon.Canyonlands is one of the five National Parks in Utah. Located on the far East side of the state, this park often gets overlooked. Because of its isolation, few visitors, and lack of roads truly makes the experience feel like an adventure on Mars.
