Why I Don't Like This Country ????????

While I constantly try to find the positives in every place I visit, there are few places that I just simply didn't enjoy.

The country of Brunei is one of them.

I went to Brunei back in 2014, three years before I made videos, but my negative experiences in the country have stuck in my mind ever since. That, combined with its absurd human rights laws such as stoning to death LGBT members, I was pushed to make this video.

Have you ever visited any countries that you didn't enjoy? Please share below, I'm curious to know.

Getting to Tokelau, the most remote country on earth | Tokelau stories part 1

Getting to Tokelau is not easy, the country doesn't have an airport so you have to jump through a few hoops to get there. In this video Sam and Andrew travel from New Caledonia through Apia, Samoa to the country of Tokelau, one of the smallest, most remote and most special countries on earth. Unless you like 60 hour boat rides and the fast and the furious 6, then this vid is probably the best way to experience what we went through to get to this amazing country. Why do it yourself when we edited it all down into a 7 minute clip?

This is the first part of a series of videos showing how to get to Tokelau, the popping and fly fishing there, and what life is like on the island.

If you like it, let us know and we'll film more videos like this from other amazing places in the Pacific.

This Country is Disappearing ????

Climate change has never felt more real to my eyes until I arrived here in KIRIBATI - an island nation in the Central Pacific Ocean.

The rising sea levels are quickly shrinking this country, which has a peak altitude of 3 meters. It's projected to be entirely underwater by the year 2100.

While many countries are feeling the impacts of climate change, nobody is more threatened right now than the 100,000+ residents of Kiribati.

The question now becomes, how do we prevent the people here from becoming climate refugees? The only 4 options I can think of are the following:

1. Build a higher sea wall (which will cost billions of USD)
2. Buy land overseas for them to relocate (will also cost a fortune)
3. Send more Kiribati citizens abroad (i.e. Australia and New Zealand) for jobs, and they can slowly adapt to a new life
4. Boost tourism in Kiribati so people can see first hand the affects of climate change, which will also pump money back in to the economy

Would love to get your thoughts on what we can do to help the wonderful people of Kiribati. I encourage you all to get creative and share your best solutions below. I will be reading and responding to as many comments as I can, and I encourage you to do the same. This is important.

Amazing facts about Tuvalu in Urdu or Hindi by Toqeer TV travel VLog tuvalu culture nanumea pacific

****
All Videos Credits : all rights go to the author and “I do not own
************ --~--
Tuvalu is a group of nine tiny islands in the South Pacific which won independence from the United Kingdom in 1978. ... Formerly known as the Ellice Islands, all are low-lying, with no point on Tuvalu being higher than 4.5m above sea level.Feb 26, 2018
Tuvalu is one of the poorest nations in the world. It has one of the smallest populations of the Pacific Islands, with an estimated 2011 population of 11,200 people. ... Roughly 26.3 percent of the population lives below the national poverty line. This makes Tuvalu one of the poorest nations on earth
Geography of Tuvalu. ... The islands of Tuvalu have poor soil and a total land area of only about 26 km², less than 10 sq mi (30 km2). The land is very low-lying, with narrow coral atolls. The highest elevation is 4.6 metres (15 ft) above sea level on Niulakita.
crime is rare, and usually involves alcohol and family disputes. Male homosexuality is iin Tuvalu; therefore, the country is not safe for sexually active gay male travelers.
With an average elevation of only 1.83 meters, Tuvalu is distinctly vulnerable to rising sea levels and intensifying tropical storms exacerbated by climate change. The impacts are already being felt by the world's fourth smallest nation.Jul 11, 2017
Least developed country (LDC) status
The United Nations designates Tuvalu as a least developed country (LDC) because of its limited potential for economic development, absence of exploitable resources and its small size and vulnerability to external economic and environmental shocks
The current population of Tuvalu is 11,681 as of Saturday, September 28, 2019, based on the latest United Nations estimates. Tuvalu population is equivalent to 0.00015% of the total world population.
In 1974, the Ellice Islanders voted for separate British dependency status as Tuvalu, separating from the Gilbert Islands which became Kiribati upon independence. Tuvalu became fully independent within the Commonwealth on 1 October 1978. On 5 September 2000, Tuvalu became the 189th member of the United Nations.

13 Best Attractions in New Zealand's North Island

13 Best Attractions in New Zealand's North Island according to Lonely Planet

12. Napier Art Deco
Napier is a popular tourist city, with a unique concentration of 1930s Art Deco architecture, built after much of the city was razed in the 1931 Hawke's Bay earthquake. It also has one of the most photographed tourist attractions in the country, a statue on Marine Parade called Pania of the Reef.

11. Coromandel Peninsula
The Coromandel Peninsula is on the north-eastern coast of the North Island of New Zealand. There are fabulous golden and white sand beaches with magnificent coastal scenery and a rugged, forest cloaked interior waiting to be explored. This peninsula separates the Hauraki Gulf and coasts around Auckland from the Bay of Plenty.

10. Auckland's Pacific Island Culture
Welcome to 'The Big Taro', where around 180,000 residents of Polynesian descent make Auckland the capital of the South Pacific. The influence of Pacific Islanders from Samoa, the Cook Islands, Tonga, Niue, Fiji, Tokelau and Tuvalu is evident throughout Auckland. On the sports field, the city's professional teams showcase the best of Polynesian power, especially the NZ Warriors Rugby League team.

9. Maori Culture
New Zealand's indigenous Maori culture is both accessible and engaging: join in a haka; chow down at a traditional hangi (Maori feast cooked in the ground), carve a pendant from bone or pounamu (jade), learn some Maori language, or check out an authentic cultural performance with song, dance, legends, arts and crafts.

8. Wellington
Wellington is the capital and third largest city of New Zealand. The Windy City is on the foreshore of Wellington Harbour and ringed by hills, providing the scenic home of many of New Zealand's national arts and cultural attractions. Wellington offers a blend of culture, heritage, fine food and coffee, together with lively arts and entertainment.

7. Rugby
Rugby Union is New Zealand's national game and governing sporting preoccupation. If your timing's good you might catch the revered national team (and reigning world champions), the All Blacks, in action. Watch some kids chasing a ball around a suburban field on a Saturday morning, or yell along with the locals in a small-town pub as the big men collide on the big screen.

6. Tongariro Alpine Crossing
A 19.4km walk across the volcanic landscape of Mount Tongariro, taking 6 to 8 hours. Said by some to be the best one-day walk in the world. Steep climbs, great views and colourful lakes. The track reopened in May 2013 after being closed by eruptions in 2012.

5. Bay of Islands
The Bay of Islands is an historic area and very popular tourist destination in the Northland region of the North Island of New Zealand. This region of New Zealand is rich in history and a fantastic example of why New Zealand has much to offer the traveller. This area of New Zealand is where the first missionaries settled in the early nineteenth century.

4. Geothermal Rotorua
Rotorua is known as the thermal wonderland of New Zealand. Its hot springs and geysers have attracted tourists for over a hundred years. Rotorua is built over a geothermal hot spot. There are numerous natural vents, hot pools and other geothermal features in and around the city. Many of these are in parks and reserves.

3. Waitomo Caves
The world famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves are one of New Zealand's top tourist attractions, located just outside the Waitomo Village, easy to find and within easy reach of all local accommodation. It is home to the famous Waitomo glowworms, tiny creatures that radiate their luminescent light.

2. Urban Auckland
Auckland is the largest city in New Zealand, with a population of over 1.5 million. It is in the northern half of the North Island, on a narrow isthmus of land that joins the Northland peninsula to the rest of the island. Auckland is often called the City of Sails for the large number of yachts that grace the Waitemata Harbour and the Hauraki Gulf. It could also be called the City of Volcanoes.

1. Hauraki Gulf
The Hauraki Gulf is a coastal feature of the North Island of New Zealand. It has an area of 4000 km2, and lies between the Auckland Region, the Hauraki Plains, the Coromandel Peninsula and Great Barrier Island, which surround it in anticlockwise order. Most of the gulf is part of the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park.

Video description: Meet Seleone, an elder from Hihifo district on Wallis Island. He is interviewed by Lotana, a nurse, who asks him about traditional ways of life, and how to integrate this knowledge into methods of teaching young people about non-communicable diseases. Through interviews with Seleone, the film shows how modernisation has profoundly changed the Wallisian way of life, with a focus on the abandonment of subsistence farming, hunting and fishing, and the introduction of imported processed foods.In this video you can find seven little known facts about Wallis and Futuna.

More information about the video content bellow:
1. Wallis and Futuna, is a French island collectivity in the South Pacific between Tuvalu to the northwest, Fiji to the southwest, Tonga to the southeast, Samoa to the east. Its land area is 142.42 km2 with a population of about 11,899. Since 2003, Wallis and Futuna has been a French overseas collectivity.
2. Polynesians settled the islands that would later be called Wallis and Futuna around the year 1000 AD/CE, when the Tongan Empire expanded into the area. The original inhabitants built forts and other identifiable ruins on the islands, some of which are still partially intact. The French were the first Europeans to settle in the territory, with the arrival of French missionaries in 1837, who converted the population to Roman Catholicism. On 5 April 1842, the missionaries asked for the protection of France after the rebellion of a part of the local population. On 5 April 1887, the Queen of Uvea (on the island of Wallis) signed a treaty officially establishing a French protectorate. The kings of Sigave and Alo on the islands of Futuna and Alofi also signed a treaty establishing a French protectorate on 16 February 1888. The islands were put under the authority of the French colony of New Caledonia. In 1917, the three traditional kingdoms were annexed to France and turned into the Colony of Wallis and Futuna.

3. Mata-Utu is the capital and biggest city.
4. Located on Wallis, Talietumu (Kolo Noi) is believed to have been built around 1450 as a Tongan settlement. For protection, the fortress was surrounded by a massive stone wall. In 1535, anyone left the area after the assassination of King Takalaua. Today, you can still visit several well preserved structures, as well as a central stone platform, where the king would hold court.
5. Lake Lalolalo is the most spectacular of the Wallis crater lakes. The eerie lake is an almost perfect circle with sheer rocky cliffs falling 30m (98ft) down to the inky, 80m (262ft) deep waters.

6. When you visit Wallis and Futuna, you have the chance to take a true vacation. Yes, there are cars, electricity, TV, Wi-Fi, and other creature comforts, but that’s where the similarities to other vacation hotspots end. You won’t find crowded tourist shops filled with t-shirts and other tchotchkes. You won’t have to carefully plan out a schedule of attractions to see. You won’t have to deal with crowds or trying to navigate the public transportation system. Instead, you’ll get to sit back, relax, and enjoy the solitude.

7. From the Neo-Romanesque style Mata-Utu Cathedral to the unusual lines and steeped tower of Basilica of St. Peter Chanel, churches on the island are beautiful and unique. The chapel at Point Oneliki is also worth visiting, primarily due to its location. It sits above the “blue hole,” a spot where lava once flowed to the sea.

Josiah Ng wins gold medal Men's Keirin Cycling : Commonwealth Games Delhi

Josiah Ng wins gold medal Men's Keirin during Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010. Cycling is one of the sports at the quadrennial Commonwealth Games competition. It has been a Commonwealth Games sport since the second edition of the event's precursor, the 1934 British Empire Games. It is an optional sport and may, or may not, be included in the sporting programme of each edition of the Games.

The 2010 Commonwealth Games, officially known as the XIX Commonwealth Games, were held in Delhi, India, from 3 to 14 October 2010. A total of 6,081 athletes from 71 Commonwealth nations and dependencies competed in 21 sports and 272 events, making it the largest Commonwealth Games to date. It was also the largest international multi-sport event to be staged in Delhi and India, eclipsing the Asian Games in 1951 and 1982. The opening and closing ceremonies were held at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, the main stadium of the event. It was the first time that the Commonwealth Games were held in India and the second time it was held in Asia after Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 1998. This also marked the first time a Commonwealth Republic hosted the games. The official mascot of the Games was Shera and the official song of the Games, Jiyo Utho Bado Jeeto, was composed by celebrated Indian musician A.R. Rahman.

Preparation for the Games received widespread international media attention, with criticism being levelled against the organisers for the slow pace of work, as well as issues related to security and hygiene. However, all member nations of the Commonwealth of Nations participated in the event, except Fiji, which is suspended from the Commonwealth, and Tokelau, which didn't send a team, in spite of threats of boycotts and athlete withdrawals. The internationally acclaimed opening ceremony improved the image of the Games, and dispelled negative notions surrounding them, with many observers remarking that they began on an apprehensive note, but were an exceptional experience with a largely positive ending. The President of the International Olympic Committee, Jacques Rogge, said that India had made a good foundation for a future Olympics bid, which was reiterated by the Australian Ministry of Sports. Commonwealth games Federation chief Mike Fennell stated that Delhi delivered a fantastic Games. Some observers accused sections of the media of bias, unfair expectations, and negative reporting.

The final medal tally was led by Australia. The host nation India achieved its best performance ever at the Games, finishing second overall.
