When we said to most people (our travel agent included) that we are going to Palau for our honeymoon the most common response we got was "Ummm …. where's that?" Most people haven't ever heard of the place, but if you do happen to stumble across someone who has been there they instantly light up and explode with praise for the little country and it's many wonders. I don't want to give you a history or geography lesson about the place (that's what Google is for) but let's just say it's the most beautiful and amazing country I have ever been to (and I have been to some pretty amazing places).
We spent just over two weeks in this beautiful, and rather untouched country. A large chunk of that time was spent kayaking and snorkelling around the rock islands, camping on the beach, scuba diving and soaking up the amazing diversity that is on display.
Here are a handful of pics from our holiday which will give you a bit of a taste of Palau and our adventures. I am currently bubbling over with inspiration from this place and I hope many new artworks will stem out of this trip.
