Can you smell that? That’s the intoxicating aroma of a fish on the grill which you just caught while out spearfishing on a remote island in northern Vanuatu.

Do you feel that stinging sensation of sweat on your brow? That’s your nerves as you begin your steep ascent up to Te Rua Manga (The Needle) in Rarotonga, Cook Islands.

Despite the persistent uncertainty around Australia’s borders, here at get lost we’ve got laser vision on the South Pacific because it’s still firming up as the first spot we’ll be heading when international travel resumes. So to whet your appetite (and to get you excited about booking your next trip) we’ve pulled together the South Pacific Cool Guide, which we believe to be the definitive list of where to party, where to sleep and where to get an adrenaline fix, all while exploring some of the most spectacular and remote islands on the planet.

Elsewhere in the magazine, we try to survive an entire day in Japan by eating only vending machine food, meet an apiarist in the Aegean who has the best job in the world, and discover why there’s no better time than a pandemic to visit Colorado’s Rocky Mountains.

Read about all this and so much more in issue 68 of get lost Travel Magazine.
