TELL ME MORE ABOUT: Vanuatu, #VanuatuMoments and #AnswerTheCall


Welcome to my new series: TELL ME MORE ABOUT: where I will be sharing resources from my favorite past adventures around our planet during this time when we cannot travel due to COVID-19. In the next weeks, I will share about all 10 trips in my recent article on Ms Magazine and I wanted you to have access to the photos, articles and videos that I produced from these experiences. For now, I hope you find inspiration until we can all begin to wander around the world again.

From Vanuatu Tourism

While Vanuatu has no recorded cases of COVID-19, it is currently recovering from the recent Tropical Cyclone Harold which devastated the northern islands.  I received information that the islanders’ crops were destroyed and the government has been carefully quarantining, sanitizing and distributing relief supplies throughout the country. I hope to visit again when we are allowed to travel once more.

I was thrilled to be invited to Vanuatu as part of their annual tourism conference, TOK TOK 2019. The theme was #AnswerTheCall and we had many adventures from walking on the edge of an active volcano and visiting a local village in Tanna, to zip-lining in Efrate and world class scuba diving in Santo on the SS Coolidge.
