Video: Paradise Lost - Visiting Papua New Guinea with Trail Runner Anna Frost

At the age of two, professional trail runner Anna Frost moved to remote Papua New Guinea with her family, where they lived for five years. After they left, she never went back. Until now. In this video, Anna returns to places she vaguely remembers from her childhood, and reconnects with a place that played an important role in her youth. Incredibly wild, remote, and diverse, the island nation remains largely unexplored and mysterious, even in the 21st century. In this video, we get to visit with Anna, and see this amazing place through her eyes.

Video: Kayaking an Uncharted River in Papua New Guinea

Yesterday we had a great video that showed us what it is like to paddle through remote Iceland. Today we travel to a different part of the world to explore an uncharted river in Papua New Guinea. In this video a team of expedition kayakers set on on the Beriman River on the island of New Britain, which remains mostly uncharted even in the 21st century. As you'll see from the clip, they discovered a place that is as wild and untamed as it is beautiful. Along the way they dropped over rushing waterfalls, paddled through deep canyons, and battled raging whitewater. In other words, it was utterly fantastic.
