We can’t socialize as we want, and we are running out of series to binge-watch. If you are looking for ways to engage with others while spending your evenings at home, we have created Sips & Trips Virtual Events.  These are not sales events.  I just want to inspire future travel by keeping us connected to each other and the world during this time when we are so isolated.

Each month, Explore More will host a virtual travel event with Salacia Salts who will create a travel-inspired kit that corresponds with a themed event.  Additional collaborations will highlight small businesses such as wineries, breweries, chocolate shops, & more.  The possibilities are endless!  Small businesses need support more than ever, and that includes support of each other.


It doesn’t get much more socially distanced than a chartered sailing trip!  You can skipper a boat yourself, hire a skipper, or even charter a yacht.  You can even hire a cook.  There are many options for sailing for a vacation and we’ll learn about this unique style of travel.


Explore More has partnered with Salacia Salts to create virtual event kits, a new kind of subscription service.  Each travel-inspired kit will be unique and tie to a monthly theme, but each virtual event will involve sipping a beverage, engaging with others, and connecting with the world in a new way. 


These virtual event kits are a product of the friendship between Cari Clark Phelps, owner of Clark Creative Communications and Salacia Salts.  and me, Jen, the owner and voice of Explore More Family Travel.  Our friendship began in Savannah, GA over fifteen years ago and has taken us all over the world together.  It is a friendship that goes beyond fun adventures, one that is rooted in our shared values.  Our entrepreneurial paths have crossed many times, so we think it is time to join in a formal collaboration.  

Salacia creates skincare, home fragrance and everyday essentials inspired by the South and sea. Products are created to provide a sense of natural relaxation, with attention to eco friendly values of sustainability and natural beauty – good for earth and good for you.  They also have a gift shop full of other brands as well.  Each kit will be inspired by travel and consist of items sold via their website and  in their stores in historic Savannah, GA.

  • Keep skin fresh and smooth for days in the sun with this Caribbean Silk Sponge. This sponge is the softest and most dense naturally occurring sponge from the warm Caribbean seas.
