Talks of reef safe sunscreen have been surfacing a lot lately. What is it? Why do we need it? Where can we buy some? This ultimate guide to reef safe sunscreen has everything you need to know.

While the nitty-gritty details of the sunscreen world can get a little chemistry-heavy, the effects of non-reef safe sunscreen can be seen by just about anyone who loves the ocean. I remember when I was little and I’d go snorkeling in Hawaii’s oceans, I’d see some bright spots of coral without even having to go that deep!

11 Travel-Themed New Year’s Resolutions to Add to Your List

2018 Travel-Themed New Year's Resolutions

I’m not really one for New Year’s resolutions.  I don’t think that making a list one night of ALL of the things I want to change or accomplish in life will actually make me do them.  Plus, many times, my goals are WAY to lofty for me to even see a clear path to achieving them – like establishing myself as a travel writer – let alone for me to do in a year.  Nevertheless, I’ve made a list of travel-themed New Year’s resolutions for you to add to your list.  These are all ideas that I think have added to my travelling experiences in the past, so I thought I’d share them with you.
