It’s a hard-knock life for us…

Ekasup1Last night, the travel students visited the Ekasup Cultural Village. The students saw first hand the life, customs, traditions and culture of the Ni Vanuatu people. They learnt about food preparation and roasting, hand made hunting traps and how to use native herbs as medicine. This is definitely a MUST DO for anyone travelling to Vanuatu!

Pictured here is one of our travel students Dan (in maroon) and our Coordinator, George (in blue). The Chief gave Dan the ‘Talking Stick’. So I suppose that made Dan honorary Chief last night?! And Dan, don’t let George anywhere near that ‘Talking Stick’ please! 😛IMG_1994

Today the travel students are off on the Coongoola day cruise. This is personally one of my favourite things to do in Vanuatu! They will cruise around the lagoon and eat lunch on a secluded island where they will be the only ones there… Relaxing, tanning, swimming and snorkelling will be the order of the day!

Tomorrow will be a free day for the students where they will get a choice of either exploring more of Port Vila, sitting on the white sand beach of Hideaway Island (where there is also an underwater post office) or doing six ziplines above the canyon!

And I bet you have that song stuck in your head now huh?!

Vanuatu Earthquake

There are reports of an earthquake in Vanuatu this morning, but we are pleased to report that our group of travellers are all safe and well.  They are in the Port Vila area and did not feel it, although a couple of students did think there breakfast table was shaking a little bit.

Yes, they are all safe and sound!
