Kiribati is an insular country formed by thirty three coral atolls in the Micronesia, west of the pacific Ocean. Beautiful paradise islands with a very traditional and genuine way of life. It barely has modern infrastructures and most of its people make a living from fishing, live in wood huts and use canoes as their main transportation method.

The highest point on Kiribati is just seven meters above sea level and predictions say that in less than hundred years the sea level is going to raise three meters, reaching its drinkable water reservations and making the island inhabitable. A beautiful place with expiration date..
