Hafa Adai (hello!) and welcome to Guam, a bucket list worthy paradise of secret beaches, scuba diving, hikes and more. Guam is home to approximately 200,000 people, comprised of 160,000 locals (yes, they are US citizens) and 4,000 United States military. Guam is the largest island of the Mariana Islands chain in the Western Pacific area called Micronesia. Prior to ceding to the US after the Spanish-American War Guam’s history extended back to 2000 B.C. with the native Chamorro people. Chamorro matriarchal culture of women as head of household is a main reason that Chamorro culture has survived. Located in the Pacific Ocean roughly between Japan and Australia, the island is multicultural, which is exhibited through its Asian and South Pacific influences in food and hospitality. Hiking, surfing, paddle boarding, snorkeling, diving. Whatever you fancy, there is no shortage of outdoor activities and watersports here. Bargain hunters will appreciate the tax-free shopping!

London is rich with history, buzzing with activity, and oh so proper. There are endless ways to enjoy this cultural capital of the world – from strolling down the River Thames, to shopping on Oxford Street, to a quite morning stroll through Hyde Park. London is sure to be on the top of any traveler’s list of favorite cities. Despite the influence from the many expats and international visitors each year, Londoners have clung tightly to their English traditions, making for an indistinguishable culture full of social norms that are charming albeit a bit puzzling to outsiders. It’s quite impossible to make it through even the rainiest day in London without grinning ear to ear. Whether it’s from the sight of Big Ben, or your first taste of sticky toffee pudding, or the way you overhear someone pronounce the word controversy – this city will make you smile.
