Waipio Valley, one of the most magical places on earth, and my favourite place on the Big Island.
Here’s a few photos, taken on a GoPro Hero2 with Alison’s Adventures. Check out photos taken on a GoPro Hero3 here: http://blog.vivantvie.com/2013/03/02/review-goprohero3/
Welcome to Yanuca Island! Home to a quaint strip of shell-ridden beach line, lofty palm trees, and crystal clear water. Alison and I spent about two weeks soaking in some sun, exploring the island, meeting the villagers of the other side, filming a short piece on a day in the life of one of the firewalkers, and of course, surfing a sweet left-hander on the outskirts of the lagoon.
1st week in Australia! Everyone who was part of Australearn started up in Cairns for the “bridging cultures program” which included orientation lecture sessions, day trips to a wildlife zoo, beach clean-up, and swimming around small slice of paradise in the great barrier reef.
Epic moped trip up to Ubud: Mopeds were $5 per day, farmer tan sunburns, multiple petrol fill-ups on the side of the road, monkey attacks at Monkey Temple, sweet deals on clothes/souvenirs, getting ripped off by police, and the best chicken satay ever at a random place on the side of the road.
Since I had 4 days left before I had to be back in California, I flew over to Bali with my friend, Tim. We stayed at an AMAZING place: Rapture Surf Camps. If you’re ever down in Bali and want to stay at an awesome surf camp, check them out.
there’s an overwhelming amount of things to say about singapore – how awesome it is, what the culture is like, how cheap the food is, how excellent the public transportation is (not during rush hour), etcetc. all that i have time to say now is that i literally ate chicken satay, prata, and bubble tea every day. more to come.
