this is how things started. On my second work trip 1978 I came first the main island of Tonga, that's when I meant Epeli Kauvaka. When we were talking about a beautiful the Beach was where we met, he told me's face is a lot more beautiful. Right there and then we need a contract that I would rent a beach and an island for 99 years from him. Since the rent was only two hundred dollars a year it seemed to be a deal without risk. In the end of this year coming back from the world trip I was very sick, and the German doctors told me I should go into intensive care. Instead I sold everything when first of California and then was my friend Shown to Vava'u check out how it is to live like Robinson. The following tape you see what this meant. I hope you have a lot of fun watching. Sorry that in s...
A magical tour of the pristine waterways and secluded island getaways that make up the 176-island archipelago of the Kingdom of Tonga.

Philip Wheeler has been living in Vava'u more than ten years. He is married to a lovely Vava'u lady called Nunia. Using local building materials he has built a beautiful and environmentally sensitive stone house using local coral limestone. Most people import materials, therefore incurring high costs and increased carbon emissions. Philip designed the building himself and it cost must less and is considerably more sturdy and long lasting than if he had built only in wood. Many people locally doubted it was possible, but now that it is built, it is inspiring much thought. It is probably the first and only building built of coral limestone in Tonga. For more information or if you would like to help Philip realise the next stage of the project please contact: Philip Wheeler on filipe...

Tonga is a peaceful island nation, as distant from modernity as it is physically from the western world. Ethnic Tongans convicted of murder, gang violence and other serious crimes, are being deported from the United States to Tonga. Forced to leave behind spouses, children, and family, these convicts are sent to a homeland many know nothing about. Will they adapt and survive in a community that is wary to have them ? And how will the influx of these hardened criminals change Tonga: The Last Place on Earth? A The Mission Inc. Production Documentary Film, 57', HD, 2013. English.

We hit the streets of Nukuʻalofa, the capital of Tonga, to ask people for their ideas on what’s possible for the future of Tonga and the Pacific Islands. This is part of a World Bank report series, #PacificPossible, focusing on the challenges and opportunities for the Pacific Islands region in coming decades.

This October saw Living Ocean Yoga travel to Tonga for their first whaleswim and yoga retreat. It was the experience of a lifetime. Few things have the power to shift you, just by being in close proximity. Sitting in the presence of a spiritual master is one. Swimming with these sentient ocean gurus is another. Here's a glimpse of the week we spent in the Ha'apai Islands, beautifully composed and edited by fellow eco warrior and whale lover Carly Thomas. Infinite love and gratitude to you Carly for putting this together for us to share. Hopefully as you watch this you will be inspired to join in when we return in September 2015. Dates and details will be released soon! For our oceans! With love, Denby and Kim.
SUBSCRIBE to the Barcroft network: http://bit.ly/Oc61Hj There are currently over 2 billion overweight adults in the world. The World Health Organization has predicted that number will grow by 40 per cent by 2020. But what are the realities behind these statistics and what kind of strain does that put on the most basic of social structures – the family? In this film Mark Dolan sets off on a journey taking him from the world’s most obese country, Tonga, to the home of the world’s fattest man, Mexico, before finally ending up in fast food America. Along his travels he tries to find out how these families became so fat, who is to blame, and whether they can do anything to change it.

http://www.livelikewewantto.com In part two we catch the ferry to Eua, Tonga's oldest island. We head into a full-on cultural experience, and wait out a tropical rain storm. We made these videos as a time capsule for ourselves but also to showcase one of the less-traveled islands in the south Pacific. Before heading to Tonga, we didn't have much of an idea of what to expect. If you're thinking of heading to the islands for a holiday, check out what the Tongan Islands have to offer :) Song Credits: Boardwalks - Little May Wicked Game - James Vincent More than Gravity - Colin & Caroline Fever to the form - Nick Mulvey Memories That You Call - Odesza (ft.
