Barefoot & Happy in Vanuatu

For the latest Harpers Bazaar issue, we flew to a private island in Vanuatu.dscf2174

Here is me doing my best Vanuatuan postcard girl pose with another giant plant. I spent 4 days barefoot and happy.

This was my home for the week.. a 300 year old javanese hut that had been transported in pieces and rebuilt on site. It was made entirely of wood and the floors were worn soft from years of use. It was a very special experience to be in the historical home of many generations and occupants before me.

This mother duck and her teenage duckling would come visit at dawn every morning and as you can see, they weren’t shy. They just waddled right in the back door.

We went horseriding in the rain and wore helmuts to protect ourselves not just from falling off but from the palms which were heavily loaded with coconuts.

In the Bahamas this weekend my friend and artist Harif decided to get creative on the beach. The Islander kids started helping out too as he painted by the shore- proving that you can be artistic anywhere! It was a great weekend in the sun and made me miss the Aussie beaches more than ever.

This place was something out of a dream - From the water bungalows to the resturants over looking the reef - it is Paradise!
