Just under a month ago I was in the Solomon Islands for work - spending some time in Honiara, the capital city and also Munda, the largest settlement on the Island of New Georgia in the Western Province. ※ ↠ Being my first time to the Sols, I didn’t know what to expect & a quick google of Munda shows stunning images of clear blue waters and a divers paradise. ※ ↠ On the Saturday morning before my flight back to Honiara & on to Sydney I took a stroll around the small town, armed with my camera. What I found is something that google images didn’t show me - pops of colour at every turn. From colourful shop fronts, one with footballs hanging in every colour, to men dressed in colourful shirts and women wearing colourful dresses carrying colourful umbrellas. As I turned the corner off Munda’s Multi-Coloured Main Street (& it’s actually called ‘Main Street’) I saw this lady carrying her sun shading umbrella behind her. ※ ↠ If you want to take a journey into this colourful little paradise, take a look at my Solomon Islands story highlights. _______________________________________ @passionpassport#ppcolorstory

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve shown my face & introduced myself around here. ※ ↠ I’m Natasha 👋🏼 & I’m from the UK but now live in Sydney, Australia. If you’ve been following a while, you’ll know I work in International Development - But you probably don’t know that the programs I support are Gender Equality & EVAWG programs in the Pacific - designed, led & implemented by bad ass Pacific women working to shift the power within their own context. ※ ↠ Last Thursday in my stories, I shared why I wear black on Thursdays ✊🏼 & also asked if you’d heard of 16 days of activism against Gender Based Violence. A whopping 76% of you hadn’t. ※ ↠ It takes place every year from the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women (25th November) to Human Rights Day (10th December). It’s an international campaign and a time to galvanise action to end violence against women and girls around the world. ※ ↠ Gender equity is KEY to ending violence against women. The strongest predictor of high levels of violence against women is unequal POWER between men and women and challenging these historical imbalances is key to affecting long term change. ※ ↠ I thought I might try and share at least one interesting article or podcast etc related to Gender Equality & all things related that I’ve personally found interesting in my stories, each day until 10th December. ※ ↠ But for now, here’s today’s tip: buy from women whenever you can. Money matters - & it can keep women from being entirely dependent on their partners & can enable survivors to rebuild their lives. #themoreyouknow ※ ↠ Like this bag by @madebyminga who collaborate with “The Floras de Choco”, a group of women artisans living in the cloudforest of Intag, Ecuador. ※ ↠ If you’re new around here and haven’t introduced yourself before, say hi & tell me a bit about yourself ↓

nubivagant (a.) wandering in the clouds; moving through the air. ※ ↠ Solomon Islands is an island nation consisting of six major islands and over 900 smaller islands. ※ ↠ I don’t know how many of those islands I flew over on the flight between Munda & Honiara - but it was a lot! & It has to be one of the most scenic flights I’ve ever taken. ※ ↠ I was in the Sols for work but it’s now on the top of my list for taking the time to explore next year. Where do you hope to explore in 2019? ________________________________________ #shotoniphone#visitsolomons#teamkaptainkenny#athomeintheworld#ourtravelpassport#mytinyatlas#mytinyatlashello#worldnomads#discoverunder10k#theconstantlycurious#flysolomons#offthebeatenpath#travelgram#instatravel#lifewelltravelled#travelgood#passionpassport#athomeintheworld#doyoutravel#stayandwander#visualsofearth#createtoexplore#wowplanet#theglobewanderer#wanderlusttribe#postcardplaces#forgeyourownpath#adventuremore#thewanderco#viewfromtheplane

On the frontline of Climate Change.
※ ↠
Kiribati is a nation made up of 32 atoll
On the frontline of Climate Change. ※ ↠ Kiribati is a nation made up of 32 atolls & 1 island dispersed across 3.5 million sq km of the Pacific Ocean. The people who live there & in other Pacific island nations, contribute less than 0.03% of the world’s total greenhouse gas emissions, yet they are some of the most vulnerable nations to climate change. ※ ↠ Testimonies from I-Kiribati & other Pacific Islanders show how climate change is not just a future concern, it is a lived reality - already having real impacts for people & communities across their nations. ※ ↠ & it’s not hard to see why. Kiribati is one of the world’s lowest-lying countries, with an average height of just two metres above sea level. Not only are the coastlines regularly being lost to increasingly frequent king tides and rising sea levels, but food security is also being impacted by more extreme rain patterns and flooding, longer droughts and salt water inundation, making it increasingly difficult to grow staple crops. Fresh drinking water supplies are also being contaminated with salt, making it unsuitable for drinking. Scientists believe that Kiribati can expect to become uninhabitable in less than 30 years. ※ ↠ Whilst the reality of Climate Change may not be immediately obvious and may seem like a distant threat for many of us - who are doing the bare minimum or making token gestures with our keep-cups. It is a current lived reality for others, who are fighting for survival and fighting to be heard. Climate Change is a global challenge, which is why we should all, as a global community, within our borders and as individuals, make changes and act for climate justice. ※ ↠ But core to this is that those with the lived experiences and most impacted must be the ones identifying and leading global solutions. They are already advocating - but we need to do more to listen to, learn and take direction from, make spaces for and amplify their voices and advocacy. To find out more check out: ※ @pacificclimatewarriors . ※ @climatevulnerableforum.@humansofkiribati.#anotesark - a documentary about climate change from the Kiribati perspective. link to the trailer in bio.

With Her: A Skilled GirlForce. ※ ↠ Today, 600 million adolescent girls are preparing to enter a world of work transformed by innovation & automation. Yet, girls are often not given the space and opportunities they need to achieve their full potential. Multiple barriers include systematic discrimination, biases and lack of training. Yep - still in 2018, the world over. ※ ↠ Tomorrow, 11th October is International Day of the Girl. This years theme is about working alongside girls to expand existing learning opportunities, chart new pathways and calling on the global community to rethink how to prepare them for a successful transition into the world of work. ※ ↠ So to see @womenwhodrone ’s campaign today (link in their bio) couldn’t have felt more apt... Did you know that less than 3% of licensed drone pilots globally are women? I didn’t until today, but I’m not altogether surprised. ※ ↠ “Technology and Artificial Intelligence will transform the world globally & drones are already playing a major part of this technological revolution. Drone technology is already changing the world in the consumer and commercial sectors. Drones deliver medical supplies to people in need, monitor crops in agriculture, survey land, and save lives through search and rescue capabilities. The use of drones will only increase and they will utterly transform society in a positive way. Yet, once again, women are at risk of being excluded from another important tech job that pays well, creates stability and choices!” ※ ↠ @womenwhodrone is on a mission to close the gender gap in the UAV industry by educating women & girls about drone technology and empowering them to become licensed, commercial drone pilots. www.fundwomenwhodrone.com ※ ↠ #womensupportingwomen#dayofthegirl#womenwhodrone#girlforce#askilledgirlforce#genderequality#girlsinSTEM cc. @thehmstravels

🙋🏻‍♀️ Quick Question: ※ ↠ Do you watch people’s Instagram Stories? & if so, I would love to know who you think does insta stories well? & what is it that gets you seeking out their stories? ※ ↠ Stories are quickly becoming my favourite Instagram feature. I’ve found that it’s somewhere I can get a bit creative (& I’ve never considered myself creative) & share things that don’t really work on the ‘grid’. It’s also somewhere I can *try* to break down sometimes complex issues that I care about, especially when I don’t have a blog. I enjoy the challenge of it & trying to be creative with it. But, if I’m honest I also struggle with it afterwards, noticing a typo or wondering if I started in the right place. whether I’ve assumed knowledge, or started too basic, and that I’ve not been able to talk about all the complexities of an issue and do it justice. ※ ↠ But I find that it’s mostly my stories that start the meaningful and interesting conversations with people. Nothing makes me happier (on Instagram - not in my real life!) when people DM me after my stories - or share them with others. ※ ↠ I will share who my favourite insta story tellers (if that’s what you call them) are & why they are my fave, but I want to hear yours first! _______________________________________ #athomeintheworld#theconstantlycurious#gltlove#teamkaptainkenny#tkkitaly#tkkeurope#mytinyatlas#ourtravelpassport#theprettycities#prettylittleitaly#theglobewanderer#wanderlusttribe#doyoutravel#globelletravels#postcardplaces#italy_vacations#topitalyphoto#italymagazine#pugliaview#aroundthepuglia#ig_puglia#puglia#whatitalyis#pugliamare#wearetravelgirls#travelgirlscollective#traveldreamseekers#girldiscoverers#girlsvsglobe#sheisnotlost

Today is World Tourism Day ※ ↠ World Tourism Day raises awareness of tourism’s actual and potential contribution to sustainable development. ※ ↠ Tourism accounts for one tenth of global GDP & has become one of the fastest growing and most important economic sectors in the world. Therefore, it is a key driver of economic growth and development for many places around the world. ※ ↠ If you’ve been a visitor to this little corner of the Internet for a while (thanks!) you’ll know that I work in ‘international development’. & that I’ve shared some thoughts and posts on how our travel choices can positively or negatively impact the places we visit from this perspective in the past. ※ ↠ So, I’ve decided to discuss one aspect where our choices really do matter when we travel in my stories tomorrow. ※ ↠ In the meantime, feel free to share in the comments some of the things you choose to do when you travel to contribute to sustainable development or ask questions / & requests for topics for discussion below or via DM. __________ *repost & re-edit of an old iPhone photo from Borneo last year. I’ll re-share the original post in my stories for context. ________________________________ #worldtourismday#ethicaltravel#ethicalchoices#responsibletravel#sustainabledevelopment#sustainabletourism#internationaldevelopment#travelgood#ladiesleavingfootprints#theconstantlycurious#ourtravelpassport#teamkaptainkenny#tkkasia#tkkmalaysia#worldnomads#tinyatlasquarterly#ROAMtravels#mybrightlife#passionpassport#postitfortheaesthetic#travelgood#peopleinplaces#humansaroundtheworld#socialmediaforsocialgood#malaysiatrulyasia#sabahtourism#borneo#bajaulaut#travelwithpurpose#yourshotphotographer

The world of instagram is a funny little place. The likes of which I had no idea about a year or so ago. ※ ↠ The Instagram world leaders & experts would probably advise me not to post this photo. They’d probably say “It’s not great quality though is it?” & “based on historic performance, you should post a photo with you in as they tend to perform much better” & “does it fit your brand?hang-on, what was your niche again?” ※ ↠ Look mate, I don’t know who made you the queen of Instagram (all leaders in my made up world are female). But can’t I just post what I like? This isn’t intended to be a vanity project. If I only posted pics with me in I wouldn’t be able to post a)pictures I actually took myself b) any pictures from Kiribati! & c) I’m a complex human being that can’t be mother trucking niched! So I’m posting these pictures. because despite their flaws, they take me back to a warm evening in Tabwakea, Kiritimati last month - watching everyone return home from their day with the sky on fire & my camera on the wrong settings. ※ ↠ I’m not gonna lie, there are times I’ve found myself caught up in the numbers & had to check myself (BTW is it just me or do so more people seem to be buying likes recently?! It’s really noticeable!) posed for photos in a way that isn’t really very ‘me’, & not posted because of how it may perform or because I keep missing my prime posting time! ※ ↠ So this is a reminder to myself(& you if it resonates) - just enjoy your little corner of the Internet. Human beings are complex & an instagram niche will never represent the whole of you. Don’t let numbers or others actions (follow, unfollowers I’m looking at you!) affect how you feel about or share yourself, your craft, your photos, your words & your passions. ※ ↠ So what to expect here? more about what I’m passionate about, my work & how that relates to other things, what riles me up, what inspires me, what I find interesting or funny, captions completely unrelated to the photo & maybe short or no captions at all when I just want to press share & no more. MORE connecting with people behind the photos & more Instagram stories! But also photos of me because that’s who I am too ✌🏼

Apologies for waiting until now to share it but @cat_macrae & @overpackedsuitcase love hearing my (pretty much daily) tales of woe & disaster in person & now I’ve seen them both since being back in Sydney, I can share.

The heart of any Kiribati community is its ‘maneaba’. What I would probably describe to any british person as similar to a traditional village hall - in function not design. The maneaba is the biggest building in any village & the centre of daily community life. Therefore, I spent most of my time on Kiritimati attending meetings and functions, sat barefoot and cross legged on the floor of a maneaba. The whole community is involved in its construction, and every aspect of the maneaba has a symbolic as well as a practical function. ※ ↠ As you walk around any village or town in Kiribati, taking in daily life, you would almost certainly come across a wide variety of activities taking place in manaebas - from Church events to band practices and perhaps most surprisingly, Bingo. Bingo is a very popular past time in Kiribati - particularly for women. It’s both a social activity and is also often used as a fundraising activity by women’s groups. ※ ↠ As I’ve said before it’s definitely not for me to tell you about Kiribati & it’s hard to find the voices of I-Kiribati online. But I did find a short one minute film made in 2012 by 14 year old Temaria Emosi from Tarawa about her perception of Bingo - link in bio. ___________________________________ #WHPdailylife#passionpassport#yourpasifika#kiribati#pacificculture#pacificislands#worldnomads#starttheadventure#bbctravel#lovetheworld#travelgood#guardiantravelsnaps#teamkaptainkenny#ROAMtravels#ourtravelpassport#theconstantlycurious#awakethelight#peopleoftheworld#documentaryphotography#natgeoyourshot#everydayeverywhere#offthebeatenpath#worldcaptures#reportagespotlight#travelwithintention#mylpguide#ichosetowander#yourshotphotographer#mytinyatlas#womencreating

No matter what list you look at, Kiribati is one of the least visited countries
No matter what list you look at, Kiribati is one of the least visited countries in the world. With most lists showing the number of foreign visitors as somewhere between 4000 and 6000 per year. Compare that to the most visited country in world - France with well over 80 million visitors. ※ ↠ I can’t help but feel the weight of this fact when sharing pictures from there here and trying to write captions. Particularly when information about Kiribati available on the internet is scarce and almost exclusively from foreigners and not I-Kiribati. ※ ↠ I have always believed it is not my place to tell anyone about another country. You can never understand the intricacies of a culture you are not part of & I don’t want to take up this space or the narrative of Kiribati. But I do want to share the beauty of this little known island nation and hope that my pictures can do it justice 🇰🇮 _______________________________________ #whpcolorpalette#kiribati#kiritimati#teamkaptainkenny#ourtravelpassport#theconstantlycurious#travelstoke#ladiesleavingfootprints#travelgood#roamtheworld#offthebeatenpath#worldnomads#liveintrepid#bbctravel#guardiantravelsnaps#mytinyatlas#mytinyatlashello#goldenhour#lifewelltravelled#travelgram#instapassport#womencreating#instatravel#postitfortheaesthetic#iamatraveler#pacificislands#yourpassport#passionpassport#beautifulmatters#starttheadventure

This spot is actually just outside London. More pictures from London, as well as Poland and Banana to come - unfortunately I didn’t make it to Paris! I’ve got so much more to share from one of the most incredible places I’ve ever visited but just trying to think about the best way to do that. ※ ↠ In my last post I told you the correct pronunciation of Kiribati.

But I’m so chuffed I managed to meet one of my favourite instapals @thehmstravels for the briefest of drinks and a chat at kings cross on my way home to my parent’s yesterday. Honestly these instapals are some of the nicest people and I haven’t been disappointed with one yet! 10/10 would recommend. (Especially if you move to a new country & know noone!)
