Well the jury is no longer out if this was the right place to come.

The day was spent in water so turquoise and white sand beaches that were so soft and beautiful that you truly didn’t believe your eyes.  #nofiltersneeded

Massages on the beach, swinging in hammocks, exploring sunken ships, and eating delicious food at stunning restaurants is what we did all day. It was perfect and truly the most relaxing, fun, day I could have imagined. #mustbeparadise


We spent hours exploring the various beaches on the North end of Santo Island. This world schooling day was all for adults and we enjoyed every minute of it!

We went to Port Olroy, and to champagne beach, a white sand beach that stretched on for miles. The snorkeling was breathtaking and we spent hours swimming with the fish. A few of the adults enjoyed cool lemonade on the beach and others got massages from island girls right there on the shoreline! The water was so still and fresh that I just closed my eyes and floated on top of the water thinking about family, God, worlds schooling homeschooling, my teenagers, my toddlers and all the beautiful world that I was lucky enough to be a part of!

Bathroom Woes

I am pretty sure that nothing in Vanuatu is like back home.. I guess I held onto that hope for too long. I was pretty happy that at least in Vanuatu we got toilet paper (in some places at least-my mom actually carries a roll around in her purse because not all the bathrooms supply it) I asked why it was pink at first, but no one really had an explanation. Maybe it’s so people can use it as streamers on the side 😉.

Anyway, uncle Dustin decided to tell my mom about the massive bag of toilet paper she could buy for only 200 vatu (approximately two dollars). It was even normal coloured. I guess I should have known nothing is normal here.

No automatic alt text available.

Now we are wiping ourselves with rolls of toilet paper about an inch wide. Really?! It’s okay though, my mom told us that she solved the problem by putting three on the holder at once and just carefully winding them to match up (and work as one)… let me tell you, it doesn’t work. Well at least we got a money saver there… I really just want normal toilet paper again 😫😂 This is literally one world schooling activity I could easily do without!
