Palau. Republic of Palau

When asked to sum up the diving draw of Palau, Wayne Hasson was to the point: “On one dive, you can see almost everything that swims in the western Pacific. There’s so much soft coral and deep water, just about anything can happen.” The Republic of Palau consists of 200-plus islands, on the southern edge […]

Galloway

Galloway is an often overlooked part of Scotland. It’s a lower part, and a more benign part, particularly so for cycling, but it’s no less beautiful than the rest. This ride is typical Galloway; you visit estuaries, cross rivers and see the sea, but most of it is in Galloway’s beautiful forested hills, with an […]

Bonaire

Bonaire. Netherlands Antilles

The license plate for the island of Bonaire bears the slogan “Divers Paradise.” That this slogan is written in English is somewhat curious, as Bonaire is part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
