    LIFE IN THE PACIFIC OCEAN: THE REPUBLIC OF VANUATU

    Last Spring, having to get out and back into Australia in order to have our medical cover renewed during our first year of Working Holiday Visa, we had to take a “forced holiday”.Such a problem!Taking a look around us on the world map we ruled out the farthest and most expensive Fiji, Cook Islands and Polinesia, and decided to opt for a much lesser known destination: Vanuatu. We ventured out driven by curiosity, without even knowing what to expect, and we returned back charmed and enriched by such a small and remote country. VANUATU Vanuatu islands, officially the Republic of Vanuatu, lies over 2,000 km away the Australian East coast.…

    TANNA WHITE GRASS OCEAN RESORT – REVIEW

  • The Moso - A Million Travels-10

    THE MOSO VANUATU – REVIEW

    Our trip to Vanuatu couldn’t have started better. Our first destination is The Moso Resort, named after the small untouched islet situated in front of Efate Island. When we saw the location of the resort, we know we were in for a special stay, and it certainly didn’t let down. THE MOSO RESORT Vanuatu is home to some 83 islands, the majority of them are small and wild like Moso, the exact stereotype of a tropical destination. Being located in front of Efate main island, where Port Vila International Airport is, makes The Moso Resort a perfect island getaway, yet not so far in matter of time and transfers. Direct…
