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.
