My 2016 trip to Nauru was everything I expected and more…far, fun, bizarre…it was so cool to be in a place virtually no one else goes.
I published a blog on Nauru when I returned and received mostly positive feedback from Nauruans, telling me they were glad that someone finally wrote about the beauty of their island as opposed to concentrating on the refugee issue, which is what almost every article is about. Not that I’m making light of the refugee situation; but I came to Nauru to explore its culture, not to do investigative journalism.

This Thanksgiving while going through some files on my computer, I stumbled upon the hours of footage I’d captured while on the island. I’d meant to upload the videos a long time ago and simply forgotten all about it. So I took the last couple of days to put together all of my video clips from Nauru–even though it made me a bit late to the dinner table on Thanksgiving–and uploaded them to share my experience with the world.
Caution: this is one slow-moving video, but so is the pace in Nauru. I hope you’ll have time to sit, relax and not rush through it. From my landing onto the world’s least-visited to island, to drives along the coast, and poking around the little Chinese shacks posing as mini-markets; I hope this video gives you a glance at life in Nauru.
