Thanks for joining us for Episode #10 of the Where Else to Go podcast. Although it wasn’t planned, we seem to be on an island theme, covering islands destinations from around the world.

Our guest today is Gary Arndt and we’re talking about where else to go, Micronesia.

Micronesia, in general, refers to the thousands of small islands located in the Pacific and comprised of several countries. These countries include:  Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, and the United States with three territories (Guarm, Northern Mariana Islands, Wake Island).

Gary talks about his visits to this part of the world, gives some recommendations for divers and non-divers, and explains why – apart from location – this is one of the easiest parts of the world to vist.

Highlights include:

  • Jellyfish Lake on Palau
  • Ruins of Nah Modal
  • Pohnpei Lagoon
  • Diving in Truk
  • Island hopper flights
  • and more

In March 2007 Gary sold his house and he’s been traveling around the world ever since. So far he’s visited all 7 continents, over 175 countries and territories around the world, all 50 states and every US territory, every Canadian province, every Australian state and territory, over 125 US National Park Service sites and over 300 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Gary is a self taught travel photographer who was named Travel Photographer of the Year by both the Society of American Travel Writers and the North American Travel Journalists Association.

You can read about Gary’s travels and see his award winning photography on his blog,Everything Everywhere. You can also follow and connect with him on social media:  Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, and Instagram.
