AMONG JELLYFISH...

     Most destinations boast about unique attractions indigenous to their locale and individual attributes. Palau is no exception. In addition to its reputation as the number one scuba diving destination in the world and as one of the “Seven Underwater Wonders of the World,” this Micronesian treasure is also home to an attraction that is not only unusual, but daring as well.
     What I refer to is Jellyfish Lake, where two types of jellyfish can be found, namely the golden jellyfish known as Mastigias and the moon jellyfish known as Aurelia. This intriguing lake departs radically from convention for it is an enclosed body of water wherein, over the course of millennia, resident jellyfish have completely lost their sting because they have not had to fight off predators, allowing interested adventure seekers a rare opportunity to swim amongst these truly unique water creatures.
     Hang tight for more details and personal reflection from our upcoming adventure to Palau…

I am so looking forward to traveling with a great group of well-respected travel journalists to the "beginning of the rainbow"...namely, Palau. It's a paradise unlike no other. Watch out Jellyfish, here I come again to enjoy your indescribable beauty and calm!

Being gently bumped by 13,000 jellyfish was like being surrounded by a hugely plush body pillow. It was surreal.
