Vanuatu. A collection of islands in an area of the South Pacific Ocean called Melanesia. .
I’m still island hopping this week, working my way around the countries of the South Pacific. Vanuatu is an incredible place full of indigenous culture, steaming volcanoes and one death defying tradition...
On the island of Pentecost the local people build huge wooden structures, attach themselves to ropes and fling themselves off the top!! Much like the more modern bungee jump, land diving or Nagol is the true test of a man’s strength and is believed that if his head slightly touches the floor as he falls then that years Yam harvest will be prosperous!
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.
