The Fangafa

The ship off in the distance is called the Fangafa. During my first trip to Tonga in 2007 I actually rode on this ship in the open sea in between an island called ‘Eua and the main island of Tongatapu. The Fangafa was not in good shape even back then, and the trip between the two islands took 8 hours. On a normal ferry the trip is only 2.5 hours. I returned to Tonga in 2010 to see the Fangafa had been wrecked on the reef in the capital of Nuku’alofa. It still remains there today.

I grew up on a farm in Pennsylvania and I currently reside in Auckland, New Zealand. As a child I was intrigued by maps and globes, and with time I developed a keen interest in traveling and learning about cultures other than my own. It is my intention to see as much of the earth’s surface, and to experience as many of the world’s cultures as possible. I find all parts of the world to be fascinating, but I have a particular affinity for the Pacific and the unique cultures that can be found in the remote islands of Polynesia. I am also enthusiastic about documentary photography/photojournalism, writing, anthropology, and skateboarding.
