The King of The Fish
Directed by James, Duration: 9 minutes
This longer video tells the story of our adventure to find the king of the fish. On our way deep into the Ecuadorian jungle we encounter torrential rain, savage sandflies, mosquitos the size of bats … and the stunning beauty of these remote “black waters.” Family Monico had to dig deep, and pull together for our most challenging quest yet.
A Day at School
Directed by Robert, Duration: 10 minutes
School is a big part of the cadence of Monico Family Travels. We are lucky to have Robert, our fantastic primary school teacher who up’ed and left the comfort of his school in Yorkshire to join us our our adventure. But what is school really like for Robert, Bella and Emily? This is a glimpse of school life in our “long stay” in Argentina where we settled down to live for 2 months.
Diving with Sharks
Directed by James, Duration: 2 minutes
Come dive with us at Kicker Rock, off the wild coast of San Cristobal island in the Galapagos. Don several wetsuits, sit back and enjoy these chilly waters which are home to friendly sea lions, hawksbill turtles, eagle rays, and the occasional Gozza fish. If anyone had told us there were hammerheads, we’d have stayed on the boat.
Thrills and Spills
Directed by James, Duration: 5 minutes
And we are off. With some trepidation we landed in Brazil, for the first few weeks of our adventure. To our surprise we were greeted by some of the friendliest, most relaxed, instagram loving, and thrill seeking people we had ever met. The wind never stops blowing on this beautiful sandy coastline, making it a mecca for kitesurfing and the whirling sand provides the perfect playground for thrills and spills.
