Whether it’s an ocean, river, lake, or even a pool, water can energize or calm, inspire or entrance. Maybe it’s because water is such an innate part of us, making up more than half of our bodies and covering more than two-thirds of our planet. It certainly calls to us on our travels. From our earliest explorations, humans have plied the world’s waterways, and today we dream about vacations at beachfront resorts and cruises that call on exotic ports around the globe. That’s why we’ve dedicated an entire issue to earth’s most precious asset. And, as part of our ongoing commitment to showcasing sustainable travel, we shine a spotlight on experiences and products that are helping preserve our H2O. If water is life, then let’s not waste either. The world is waiting, so go ahead and dive in.
