  • Even the island staff pulling the kayaks turned to look at this one. 🌅
(And he sees them daily.)
A storm was rolling in and it was uncertain whether we'd see the setting sun. 
This time, I made it before it dipped below the horizon. But had to set an alert to get me there!

  • Some of the million snaps we took aboard the USNS Brunswick with the visiting US Navy yesterday. Guided by the Australian Lieutenant Commander serving as their Gender Advisor after a meeting on local gender issues that morning. 🐍

Talofa from Samoa (hello). All smiles at Matareva Beach.

Matareva was my favorite place in Upolu island, in Samoa.
I’ve seen pretty much the whole island but this small, almost private beach, just stole my heart.

Matareva Beach resort had a warm welcome and I would totally recommend this place if you are visiting Samoa in the future.

Só sorrisos em Samoa! Talofa (Oi em Samoan). Quando se ouve falar em Samoa, 9 entre 10 vezes o motivo é o To Sua Trench (acompanha nos stories de amanhã!). Porém, apesar do Cenote To Sua ser lindo, a praia de Matareva ganhou meu coração.

Me hospedei no Matareva Beach Resort (R$180 por noite ou AU$65, com café da manhã e jantar incluso) e simplesmente não queria ir embora.

A praia na frente das cabanas é linda, água azul turquesa, quente, palmeiras por todos os lados... uma rede pra deitar e areia branquinha.

Minha estadia em Matareva foi rápida mas se voltasse para Samoa, iria com certeza passar mais tempo por lá.

Um pedacinho de paraíso no paraíso Samoa.

  • 📍 Rano Raraku quarry
🇨🇿 V lomu Rano Raraku se na svazích sopky válí cca 400 moai, některý z nich nedokončený, některý ponechaný na cestě z lomu, některý hotový - stojící nebo popadaný. Největší z nich, která nebyla dokončená, měří 21 metrů - vidět sochy ve skále je strašně zajímavý, protože až tak si člověk uvědomí, jaká šílená to musela být práce bez normálních nástrojů.
🇬🇧 In the Rano Raraku quarry around 400 moai can be found on the slopes of a dormant volcano, some of them unfinished, some left on the way to it's destination, some finished and standing or fallen down. The largest unfinished one measures 21 meters - it's extremely interesting to see unfinished statues, because just after that one can realize how crazy work it had to be without any tools except obsidian and rock hammers.

  • To celebrate my big bros birthday, I want to share this with the world and shout it from the rooftop: MY BROTHER IS A PUBLISHED AUTHOR!!!!!!!!! He has spent over 5 years researching and writing this history book on a subject that has not received much attention. In other words, I'm very proud 😭🎂 #saipan #pacificislands #historybooks
