yap: part two: ulithi: the subtitle

About halfway through the trip, we had the awesome opportunity to be flown out to the tiny island of Falalop in the Ulithi Atoll, a 40 minute flight out of Yap. We spent the weekend walking around the island, talking with locals, and doing a lot of swimming.

As always, please comment, share, and enjoy!

We flew there.
