As soon as I arrive I’m already in the wrong. Kiribati is not pronounced as you think, in fact it’s Kiri-BAS. After my apologies I jump ashore to explore. Kiribati is made up of 33 islands stretching across a huge area of the South Pacific, 3.55 million sq km to be exact. It’s safe to say this country has a LOT of ocean.

It’s no wonder then that I spend a lot of my time riding in their world famous fast canoes, which is good news as it’s the ocean that I’ve come to see. I grab my snorkel one morning and head to the largest protected marine zone in the world, The Phoenix Islands Protected Zone. It’s a pure delight as I swim amongst the coral spotting animals such as Manta Rays, Sharks, Turtles and so many fish I could hardly count!

Join me as we'll discover and learn about the world and every country it has to offer. I'll delve into my favourite experience, sight or people that I visit and meet along the way and give you some fun facts. I'll also be taking a snap as I travel so take a peel below to see where I've been so far.

Teaching geography for kids is so important to me so don't forget to track my progress on my World Map here and follow @archiboldclutterbuck on Instagram to be first to know of any new adventures!
