Nature Trek in Vanuatu Paradise

You know Life Is Good when you get to be with friends and can take a Nature Trek in Vanuatu Paradise, all while you are working is the best part.

Welcome to all my friends and readers, we went on an aerial view of Vanuatu last post and this time I want to share the feeling of being enclosed in Natures arms as the universe intended. It all began with a pretty hairy taxi ride from the resort, and when asked by the driver where did we want to go , our smart reply was show us some good spots. Well friends at first I thought we were not going to go all that far as the taxi was an old beat up 4 door corolla with the hood lining hanging down and some door handles missing. Then we also found out they have no road rules or licence's there.

The Locals Village
Still not really knowing where we were headed , the driver turned onto a dirt road and went into a sort of small community where there were many hut type structures with interwoven palm leaves as a roof. Even here with the primitive type housing we were in lovely peaceful surroundings and green foliage every where at the foothills of the island. We spent perhaps 15 minutes here site seeing and taking photo's before moving on, it was a great comparison of Lifestyle .

Natures Memories
The taxi driver soon had us at a place that I will remember for the rest of my life, it was called Cascades Waterfall and just like the sign said , it was more than a tour it was a lifetime experience. This was to be our Nature Trek in Vanuatu Paradise and it was worth every cent we paid the taxi and the gate attendant. We set off on our own wandering through the jungle so to speak along a beautiful stream that eventually led us to the magnificent water falls about 2km in.

All in A Days Work
These series of cascading waterfalls consisting of about 30 in total with crystal clear water ponds at the bottom of each fall , eventually led us up through the jungle and to the main waterfall at the top. The ladies waited and took photographs of the beautiful settings and surrounding wild flowers, while Myself and Scotty my work mate just had to climb the waterfall and swim in the several ponds on the way. You know all those late nights ,lessons,and workshop seminars on internet marketing were all worth it, when you can sit in the middle of a magical waterfall and wave to your wife below , as you are working and swimming in Vanuatu.."must pinch myself."

Dreams Do Come True
Not only have I wanted to share this adventure in Vanuatu and have you consider some fabulous journies like this , I want you all to understand that only two years ago I was a full time plumber . This involved long working manual hours and at times 70 hrs a week. I then decided to start learning the skills needed to do internet marketing and a good friend gave me the gift of a lifetime as it has turned out, a book called "Year Of The Affiliate" got me to a point where I realized that it was possible for an old plumber to replace his income.

I had to work also on personal development and commit to the learning with an open mind, this was not all that easy when all your mates were camping or fishing for the weekend while you were at an internet workshop for 2 days which you had to pay for.
Well I am not trying to impress you or boast in any way,........ did you know I have traveled to more places in the last 10 months than I have in my life and in 2 more weeks my wife Sandra & I will be in London. Yes we have to go there for some more work related matters and it looks like we will be stuck there for around 2 weeks..!

Take care as you travel your journey in life and I want to hear any of your thoughts on your experiences , so please leave a comment or contact me with any questions or queries you feel I can help you with. I do hope my Nature Trek in Vanuatu Paradise has helped give you an insight as to what is available to us all, should we want to take the ride.
Learning to communicate success and also teach others is now a life Goal of mine.

Hey.....Life Is Good........

Vanuatu Sight Seeing By Plane

Photographs and Memories to Share With Friends

  • Vanuatu Sight Seeing By Plane

As all our readers and followers enjoyed reading about all the hard work we had to do
in Vanuatu and what a great place it was to work, I thought today I would tell you a little about our sea plane sight seeing flight over the main area of Vanuatu and surrounding islands and bay's.

The photo above shows most of the main business area and harbor of Port Vila which thrives with vehicles, markets,shopping area full of tourists & locals,along side the harbor foreshore where you catch ferries and boats to the out lying islands or just cruising around the harbor which we also did another day on a catamaran . The small 4 seater sea plane we were on is kept moored at an island resort and we had to take a short ferry ride to connect with it to go on the flight.

The name of this island resort which is only 1km off the main land is Tririki and it is beautifully set out with with all the facilities you could imagine that will extract as much of your money from you as possible while they have you stranded on the island. It would be worth every cent and infact we met up with a young couple from Australia while on our cruise that had come here to get married on Tririki Island then spend a week there for their honeymoon, it is truly beautiful and recommended.

The weather was perfect all the time we were in Vanuatu so we knew our Sight Seeing By Plane was going to be excellent and our two photographers , my wife Sandra and our internet marketing friend Sharon,would be able to get some great photographs.
The shots here you will see were all taken by the girls and they give you an idea of how beautiful Vanuatu and Port Vila are , when you see the lovely clear water and calm lagoons all around the mainland. It is no wonder so many divers & snorkelers enjoy the diving here. Our friend Sean took his two sons for their first open ocean scuba dive while we were all there working hard.

Let me now show a few more photo's to help you understand the beautiful place and surroundings here and why so many tourists visit this paradise and to see it By Plane is even more spectacular. The pilot was excellent and made sure we saw everything.The island in this shot is where all the main tribal people and the Cheif of this country reside with no tourists or foreigners , it is not a very large island and is not far off the main land as you can see in the photo. They travel too and fro to the mainland by boat for shopping and other requirements. They are gentle and very friendly people and we were told that to walk the streets of night was not dangerous.

It is a great feeling when your loved one and good friends spend such special time together, like we were fortunate enough to do while we were in Vanuatu, and to also know that this trip was virtually the start or a taste of what is to come for us all in the very near future due to our internet businesses we have been structuring and building this last past 8 months.
Check the smiles out on these two lovely ladies as we flew over Vanuatu Sight Seeing.

You do not see smiles like that on the faces of people who have to line up and be at work every morning. All the time we were there I spent smiling myself, both internally and externally as I knew all our hard work was beginning to pay off and we had never experienced a lifestyle such as this in our lives prior to becomming involved with the net.

We landed back at the Tririki Island Resort and caught the ferry back to the mainland for a brouse through the shops and markets before catching a cab back to our resort, the Le-Merriddean, which is about a 6km drive across the island over the hill to a beautiful secluded area of beach and nature surroundings. I do not play golf yet there was a golf course and all the facilities included at the Le-Merriddean, we spent a lot of our time around the pool,bar & on the beach. Just a couple of more pic's and I will sign off.

I have enjoyed sharing with you all some of the sights and things we did while we were all in Vanuatu with our workmates. We also managed to go on another little expedition into the jungle and rainforest where we found some other beautiful and exciting surroundings. I will bring that to you all in my next post , so stay tuned and thanks for letting me share the time we went to Vanuatu Sight Seeing By Plane, it is now a life time experience. is good......

What a Week We Had in Vanuatu Working

Yes friends , our new career meant that both my lovely wife Sandra and I were required to fly to Vanuatu last week and tend to some internet marketing duties that just had to be done. We tried to get out of having to go yet our coach and mentor insisted , we make sure we were there when he arrived .

I have that much respect for Sean and Cherie Rasmussen that there was no way I was about to let them down and watch them struggle with the duties at hand it just would not have been fair. So while I was weighing up that hard decision in my intelligent brain, Sandra had already made all the bookings for flights and accommodation and invited another internet marketing friend Sharon de Bryun to come along and help .

So as I was already out voted and all the arrangements were made, I realised there was no way out of this, so just decided I would have to go to Vanuatu working.
The first thing Sean had us do was to sit down and plan what needed to be done, who was going to do what and how we should go about it all.

This is Scotty , Sharon & Sean sitting around in the Meridean Resort lounge in Vanuatu laying out the duties at hand for us all. Some of the things he wanted me to do were a little unfamiliar for an ex Plumbing contractor and I was not used to this work.
Jobs To Do List At Vanuatu
  • Visit the bar at the pool regularly and drink lots often.
  • Make sure the Pizza was always fresh and on time
  • Always finish the days work with a huge Island coctail
  • Go swimming regularly so as not to overheat and save going to the toilet
  • Take turns holding down the bananna lounges by lying on them
  • Tweeting business messages and then re-tweeting them #followfriday
  • Digging articles and stories to support the business associates
  • Plan the next days events before retiring while we were still sober.
  • last and not least. Eat as much tropical fruit and sea-food as possible
OMG !!
Do we have to do all that while were here I said to Sean, his answer was .....No not while your here that is only what we will do the first 2 days. After that I have a convention planned for us all down on the main beach where we will go over the work we have done , compare notes, drink some more, go sailing on the catamaran. Oh and bring your computers down to the beach as well , we have some more tweeting,digging ,shouting and emails to complete, he said.
The girls tried to escape and go shopping in the village, that's when our trusty guard and tracker caught them sneaking away and bought them back immediately. So Sean gave them extra duties that day, Sandra and Sharon were told to go swimming for an hour and then paddle the surf ski's for another hour as punishment.

We worked hard on all our projects and managed to finish all the required work inside the time allocated, because we were all so hard working Sean & Cherie took us into the village the last night with their two lovely boys and we were shouted a magnifficent meal at an outdoor restaurant on the harbor water front.

You see my friends most folks only dream of a job like this, only 2 yrs ago so did Sandra and I, until we met Sean & Cherie Rasmussen who have taken us under their wing and taught us that Dreams do come true if you want them too. We are still only apprentices in the internet marketing world and still have so much to learn, oh and some more work to do like the Week We Had in Vanuatu Working our little bums off with the internet marketing business.

Both Sandra and I are well on our way to becoming financially free and never having to work physically again in our lives, that has always been our Dream and how good it feels to see it unfolding as a result of lots and lots of hrs and commitment building our internet marketing business. I am in no way boasting here, yet I do hope that those who are looking towards the internet marketing as a way of replacing their income , do so seriously as any one can build a successful business online.

Well thank you all for showing interest in the life and chapters of Allen Sentance, as I have so many more chapters to complete and bring to you all. They will be things I have experienced and achieved through commitment and working hard , and as I leave you all now remember the Week We Had in Vanuatu Working can be any one.
