    Sorry, don't know anything about Fanning Island. But you must read "the Sex Lives of Cannibals" by J. Maarten Troost. Before you report me to abuse, you must know that the book is nothing about the title. It's about a guy and his girlfriend who move to Kiribati, when she accepts a posting there. The book is very entertaining, and details his experiences at the end of the world. Yours is the first post I've seen asking about this place. Enjoy!

    When I went to fanning island they had a market set up so locals could sell the things that they had made. You can get your passport stamped, I think they charge you five dollars, but I did it anyway. You can swim and walk around and take in all of the beauty around you. I turned my visit into my girl scout gold award project and collected and donated school supplies to their school. If you want you can check out my website at www.geocities.com/lolodrake

    Have you been there by now? What DID you find? I have been to the Gilbert's, and what I found most of all, was tranquility :-)
