Loom Footwear Review – Waterproof Sneakers that Look Great

I received a pair of Loom Footwear's waterproof sneakers for this review. All opinions are my own.

One of our favorite items to take with us when traveling is waterproof shoes. Not only do these make going out in inclement weather a breeze, but waterproof shoes also let us tackle a wide array of hiking conditions in nature without batting an eye. (Oh the number of times I've had to cross a stream in regular sneakers and ended up soggy for the rest of the day…)

So when Loom Footwear reached out to see if I'd be interested in trying out their new waterproof sneakers, I was more than happy to jump at the chance for one reason and one reason only- I've never had waterproof sneakers, only hiking shoes and boots.

This opens up a whole new world of possibilities.

Discovering What it Means to be Human by Nature in Kerala, India

When you visit a destination, what memories do you walk away with? Are they about the landscape? The food? The people? Or a combination of it all?

During our visit to Kerala in southern India, it was most certainly a mix of everything. But in thinking about it, the human element that tied everything together was a prominent feature in every destination we visited.

When Kerala Tourism reached out and asked if we wanted to be a part of their Human by Nature campaign, to share our experiences with the human side of visiting Kerala’s natural wonders, we were in. In thinking back on it, the human element was truly a big part of our trip to the state!

In this one, we wanted to share how the Human by Nature theme played a big part in a few of the destinations we visited.

Hostelling International USA is Celebrating World Water Day

Prior to quitting my job to be a full-time travel blogger, I was a chemical engineer. 

More specifically, I was a water engineer and worked in many different subsets of the industry from municipal water treatment and wastewater to oil and gas produced water purification.

To put it simply, water accessibility and drinkability has been an especially important issue to me for quite some time.

So, it should be no surprise that when I heard that Hostelling International USA launched the Million Gallon Challenge, I had to learn more. In partnering with them to share the story, I ended up learning quite a lot!
