Sorry for the lack of updates because I'm away at the Ogasawara Islands, Japan, also known as the Bonin Islands. Internet is a little spotty.
It takes 24 hours by ferry to get to the biggest island of the group, Chichijima, from Tokyo. Then there is also Hahajima, a two hour voyage from Chicijima.
So far, I've hiked, snorkeled and checked out the island views for a week. I'll give you a more thorough update another time but here are some photos of my trip so far.
