Stills on the move

Vanuatu, Banyan tree

In the Pacific area huge banyan trees are often a sacred place for the locals. Besides a lot of vegetation and animals living in these trees more on the ground it gives shelter or can it be a ceremonial place. To sleep between the roots is an experience especially with a clear zenith above yourself. Combined with the ‘natural’ sounds makes it unforgettable!

An old chestnut tree that the survived hundreds of storms, lightning strikes, fires but still standing firm and admired by hikers on the way to the nearby Grotto to eat and sleep.
