Why You Should Always Travel With A Floaty


Jessica Vitorelo / March 2017


Let us explain. We recently took 20 ladies to Panama for a week of adventure, yoga and sunshine, AKA a freakin’ awesome women’s only adventure retreat. We spent our mornings in downward dog, catching wavesand diving deep under the ocean’s surface. When we came back up for air and headed to the hotel for some good ol’ afternoon R&R, we napped in our hammocks and seas’d the day atop our floaties. And it was awesome.

Now, real talk: we know the space in every traveler’s backpack is prime real estate that only gets filled with the necessities, but lately we’ve chosen to fill our packs with floaties. Yes, it’s risky when going through security (can be hard to explain a unicorn sometimes), but we’re pretty sure you should definitely be doing the same. We’ve traveled as far east as Asia and as far south as Panama with these aforementioned floats, and we know we are definitely not the only ones.

As we scoured the #Floaty Instagram, we came up with 12 reasons you should bring one of these bad boys along for the ride.

1. For the best dolphin selfies of all time
