In case you missed the many #EarthDay social posts this morning, we are here to remind you that it is in fact Earth Day. This year, all celebrations will be happening digitally and we thought we’d honor our planet by reminiscing on our favorite places on Earth.
Although we are not the most outdoorsy people (drinking on patios is outdoorsy in our book), we do enjoy the moments when nature takes our breath away.
The Volcano Views in Antigua Guatemala
There is something magical about standing in a city built in the 16th century and being surrounded by majestic volcanoes (some which are still active)! Antigua Guatemala has been through so much and somehow still manages to be such a peaceful and happy place.
Roatán, Bay Islands
“Roa”, located on the Caribbean coast of Honduras, is my definition of paradise! Sun, sand & seafood – what more could you possibly need? West Bay and Camp Bay beaches are unlike anything I’ve ever seen; they might just be the best beaches in the whole world.
Driving into Sedona from Phoenix feels like a dream. The color of the rocks and the size of the canyon walls can only be described as ‘out of this world’, thankfully they aren’t and we can visit. them while staying on planet Earth. When you explore the desert, you’re overwhelmed by the silence and the sense of peace all throughout.
Scribe Winery, Sonoma, California
California’s wine country is one of my favorite places to be on Earth. The varied landscape of hills combined with vineyards and long winding roads is as gorgeous as it is relaxing and fun to explore.
Gran Cenote, Tulúm
The cenotes of the Yucatán peninsula in Mexico are one of the world’s most beautiful treasures. I’ve never felt more at peace with myself than when I was floating through this natural ancient Mayan structure. There are thousands in Mexico’s Yucatán peninsula but this is one of the largest the Gran Cenote in Tulúm.
Audubon Park is my favorite place to be outdoors in my home New Orleans. The gorgeous park is perfect for just about anything from running, to picnicking, tanning and people watching.
This year has been tough for all of us, but one positive outcome we’ve experienced is that it quickly showed us what truly matters: our health, the health of those around us, and the health of our environment. There are places on this planet that are simply magnificent and therefore we must join the fight in protecting our environment and everyone + every thing who lives in it!
