My Pacific Quest  我的太平洋大冒險
by Evan Witkowski

Join a modern-day explorer on his series of island-hopping adventures.


  If you ever wanted to leave your life behind and set sail across the open ocean to discover remote desert islands, this is the show for you. The host of National Geographic's My Pacific Quest is Ellis Emmett, a man from New Zealand whose thirst for adventure takes him on exotic journeys where he learns valuable life lessons. Emmett sets out by sailboat to explore the vast stretch of remote dots of land known as the Pacific Islands.
  As an experienced outdoorsman and mountain trekker, he takes on the challenges of life at sea, and overcomes his ineptitude on a sailboat with the help of his more experienced friends. Each episode finds Emmett and the crew arriving at another remote island. That presents an opportunity to meet the locals who teach him vital skills while sharing their lifestyles and culture. From his native shores to the Kingdom of Tonga and on to Fiji, Wallis and Futuna, the Marshall Islands, and Kiribati, Emmett takes viewers on a fascinating tour of the Pacific Islands' idyllic landscape.
  Immersed in the customs and traditions of the Pacific Islanders, Emmett gets firsthand knowledge of what life is like in Oceania. And it's not easy living in paradise. He learns how to hunt for his own dinner next to new islands formed by active volcanoes and treacherous coral reefs full of flourishing fish populations. Along the way, he picks up on what it takes to survive, and he even gets his feet wet by partaking in the fire walking ceremony. Instead of risking life and limb to see the far reaches of the world, watch My Pacific Quest on National Geographic from the comfort of your own home.
