Kiribati Pictures

Kiribati (
map) was the fifth country/territory I visited on my Pacific Islands trip. My visit was from the 12th of September 2000 to the 14th of December 2000. I always stayed with I-Kiribati families at home in both towns and villages. I was not really interested in any tourist activities, but I always tried to adapt to the local lifestyles as much as possible. During my visit to Kiribati I visited the islands of Tarawa, Beru, Nikunau (stopover) and Abaiang. (read more...)
