7 days on a remote island somewhere in the Caribbean Sea without electricity and WiFi. This might sound scary to some people, but it is exactly what we are looking for. We spent one week freediving, opening coconuts and chilling in our over-the-water bungalow. Glover’s Reef is one of 4 atolls in the Caribbean and is around 50 miles off the coast of Belize. A true hidden gem for nature lovers who regard tranquility as a luxury.
Melbourne is the first city we visited in Australia and after exploring Japan it was quite a change.

Make sure you plan 3-4 days additionally to explore the famous Great Ocean Road close to Melbourne.

First of all it is possible! We spent a month in French Polynesia and went to big islands like Tahiti as well as very small atolls like Tikehau and managed to find vegan food in all places with more or less effort.

In the following article we will share the vegan gems we found during our trip as well as useful tips for planning your vegan dream holiday in Tahiti, Mo’orea, Huahine, Bora Bora, Rangiroa and Tikehau.
It doesn’t matter how far away you go, even the remotest islands like the Bandas are full of plastic waste. The problem is not only the plastic coming from other places but also the rubbish thrown away by locals. The rubbish is just piling up and polluting the pristine archipelago. Nobody seems to care or feel responsible for it. But there is one outstanding personality who pledged his life to make Banda clean again. Magi, a 40 year old teacher, has achieved what no government project has managed so far. He educates people about reducing plastic and organizes a whole waste system on Banda Neira. This is the extraordinary story of how one person can make a big change.
