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.

BULA from one of my all-time favorite countries -- FIJI!

I am here for a third visit -- but this time is just a 24 hours layover en route from Micronesia to Tuvalu -- so I decided to make a 5th episode of my favorite series, seeing how far I can maximize $100 in 24 hours!

Many people think that Fiji is so expensive (and it certainly can be)... but if you live like a local, then I find it to be cheaper than anywhere else in the Pacific.

Do you have any questions about traveling to Fiji? Comment them below and I'll get back to you!

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.

This AIRPORT is a PLAYGROUND! (Seriously)

► SUBSCRIBE for daily travel videos:
► INSTAGRAM?

Welcome to Tuvalu! One of the world’s smallest and least populated countries in the world, located somewhere between Hawaii and Australia. Less that 200 tourists visit Tuvalu every year, and it’s a special experience to be here and witness one of the most lively scenes in this world... which takes place at the airport every night around 5PM!

The one and only airport turns into a massive playground for kids and adults to play their favorite sports like soccer, basketball, volleyball and rugby!

Why? Because the island is so small and there is literally no other place to play besides this air strip!

In every other airport around the world (that I've seen), it’s illegal to even walk inside of the airport ground at ANY time… but here in Tuvalu, it’s encouraged!

TUVALU: Inside classrooms of a ???? primary school, rare views and tour (Pacific Ocean)

Tuvalu, Pacific Ocean - the classrooms of a local school in Tuvalu. Let's visit the beautiful (and very isolated) country of Tuvalu in the Pacific Ocean (a number of atolls, really, 3 hour north by plane from Fiji) and go inside the country's largest primary school in the city of Funafuti for a very rare view inside the classrooms. Never videotaped before, this is the Nauti Primary School, in Tuvalu, Pacific Ocean, and we will look at the books and get a feeling of the classrooms in this very rate video...

10 Things NOT To Do in Samoa

Get more Tips here!

The Samoan islands are surrounded by miles of pristine beaches, crystal blue ocean, and dazzling reef. But keep in mind that Samoa is a conservative country, and you should do your research ahead of time. Here’s our list of 10 things you should NOT in Samoa.

1. Don’t Stay Standing
When it’s time to get down to business, you’ll notice that Samoans all sit down on the floor to engage in discussion. It’s also considered rude to eat or drink while you’re standing.


2. Don’t Indulge in Kava
It’s customary to take part in the kava ceremony. This narcotic brew is made with the roots of a pepper plant, and the cup of liquid is passed around for everyone to sip and enjoy. Overindulging in the drink can decrease your reaction times and motor coordination.


3. Don’t forget to brush up on the Culture
Samoan Cultural Village and Knowledgeable guides will take you around through different exhibits where you’ll be given a fun history lesson. You’ll also be taught coconut weaving, watch an entertaining dance performance, and be treated to a traditional meal cooked over an earth oven.


4. Don’t Underestimate a Beach Fale
A fale is a hut on the beaches. You can actually rent one and wake up to the waves crashing right at your feet. These handmade structures range from simple to luxurious, but to get a true experience, you’ll definitely want to stay in the old school version made of wood and dried coconut fiber.


5. Don’t Leave the Water Without Your Lava Lava
After soaking up some sun on the beach, make sure to cover up with a lava lava afterward. It’s similar to a sarong, and it basically covers up your body so that you don’t offend the locals. And keep in mind, the lava lava is worn by both men and women.


6. Don’t Forget to Pay Taefu T Matafeo Store a Visit
Between Salelologa and the north coast, you’ll find a tiny establishment called Taefu T Matafeo Store. Inside, you can sip on some of the best espressos ever, while nibbling on homemade cakes. They also serve up light fare, including kimchi, and they have more than enough icy beer to go around.


7. Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls…Just Joking
Samoa’s backdrop is rich with gorgeous tropical forests that are home to some of the most stunning waterfalls. On Upolu Island, you will find Sopoaga Waterfall at the foot of Lotofaga Village. At the base of the falls, you can also take part in an umu demonstration and coconut husking.


8. Don’t Be Surprised by Beach Fees
In Samoa, the majority of the beaches are owned by families and villages, and they charge visitors a small fee (from 5 to 20 tala) to swim, take photos on the beach, or even wander around the sand. If you’re staying at a resort, you won’t have to worry about this fee at all.


9. Don’t Visit the National Museum on Weekends
This museum should definitely be at the top of your itinerary, but make sure you stop by during the week, because they’re closed on weekends. You can send a special request to ask that they open their doors for you on a Saturday or Sunday, but there’s no guarantee that they’ll honor it.


10. Don’t Enter During Prayer
Prayer sessions can happen frequently, and if you find that you’ve arrived at someone’s home during a prayer, wait outside until it is finished. If you’re inside their home at the time the prayer’s set to take place, you’ll be expected to take part in the service as well.

10 Most Captivating Atolls in the World !!

10 Most Captivating Atolls in the World
An atoll is a ring of coral that originally grew completely around the shoreline of an island, and which continued to grow upward on top of itself as the island subsided or eroded away. As reef building corals thrive only in warm waters, atolls are only found in the tropics and subtropics. In other words; atolls are made up of turquoise lagoons and colorful reefs teaming with marine life, offering picture postcard beaches and a Robinson Crusoe life style.

10. Funafuti

Tuvalu is an island nation located in the Pacific Ocean, midway between Hawaii and Australia, probably best known for its “.tv” internet domain name. It is the second-least populous sovereign state in the world, with only Vatican City having fewer inhabitants. Because of the country’s remoteness, few tourists ever visit Tuvalu. It’s capital Funafuti is a small coral atoll; the width is only about 20 meters (66 ft) at the narrowest parts, and about 400 meters (1300 ft) at the widest part of the island
9
. Bikini Atoll

Bikini Atoll is famous for two things: First the bikini swimsuit was named after the atoll in 1946. Second, as part of the Pacific Proving Grounds it was the site of more than 20 nuclear weapons tests between 1946 and 1958. The indigenous people were relocated in 194 and have remained in exile on other islands. Today, the islands are safe to visit, and background radiation is now less than most large cities, but the soil still contains dangerous levels of radioactive material.

8. Tubbataha Reef

Tubbataha Reef is one of the best scuba dive destinations in the Philippines. The reef is made up of two atolls, North Atoll and South Atoll, separated by a deep channel of approximately 8 kilometers wide. It has become a popular dive site because of its coral “walls” where the shallow coral reef abruptly ends giving way to great depths.

7. Lighthouse Reef

Three of the four atolls in the western hemisphere can be found in Belizian waters, the fourth atoll lies just north in Mexican waters. Lighthouse Reef is probably the best known of these atolls due to the Great Blue Hole that can be found near its center. The most popular dive site in all of Belize, the Great Blue Hole offers divers interesting observations of limestone formations that mold its walls.

6. Tikehau

Tikehau is part of the Tuamotu Archipelago, a chain of atolls spanning an area of the Pacific Ocean roughly the size of Western Europe. Tikehau is undoubtedly a picture postcard with its long ribbons of white or pink sandy islands, inside of which a turquoise lagoon shelters the most amazing variety of fish.

5. Caroline Island

First sighted by Europeans in 1606, Caroline Island is part of the Republic of Kiribati. Despite more than 300 years of occasional human impact, the island is one of the world’s most pristine tropical islands and has been rated as one of the most unspoiled atolls in the world. Caroline Island and its neighbor,

4. Aitutaki Atoll

Aitutaki Atoll consists of a number of volcanic and coral islets around a triangular lagoon. The lagoon and its islands are breathtakingly beautiful. The classic picture postcard of small palm tree fringed tropical island, with shallow, warm turquoise waters, corals, tropical fish and blue skies can be found right here.

3. Aldabra

Aldabra, is one of the Outer Islands of the Seychelles more than 1,100 kilometers (700 miles) from Mahé, the largest island of the Seychelles and is closer to the coast of Africa. It is the second largest atoll in the world after Kiritimati. Due to difficulties of access and the atoll’s isolation, Aldabra is virtually untouched by humans and thus retains some 152,000 giant tortoises,

2. Rangiroa

Rangiroa is one of the largest atolls in the world and the largest atoll in the Tuamotu Archipelago (see also Tikehau). Rangiroa is a major underwater diving destination because of its lagoon’s clear blue water and exceptionally diverse marine fauna. Popular diving sites include the Blue Lagoon, and Tiputa pass. Led by strong currents, sharks can remain motionless in the Tiputa pass and allow divers to observe them without any difficulty .

1. Atolls of the Maldives

The tiny country of the Maldives in the middle of the Indian Ocean is made up of about 1,200 tiny coral islands grouped into 26 atolls. The word atoll actually comes from the the Dhivehi (a language spoken on the Maldives) word “atholhu”. With the highest point above sea level being around 2 meters (6.5 feet), the Robinson Crusoe life style is everywhere you look. underwater life is abundant.
