The adventures of the island interns

adventuresThe Adventures of the Island Interns is a new online travel video series following the life-changing journey of Ben Brown and Luke Hansen, winners of the first-ever Island Intern Contest.

Held last Spring and hosted by Amble Resorts, the eco-development company searched for an intern to live on the site of their flagship eco-development, Isla Palenque, a 400-acre private island/ecotourism playground featuring twelve beaches, volcanic bluffs and abundant wildlife.

This week, the first episode, "The Opportunity of a Lifetime," shows the excitement and life-changing outcome of the Island Intern Contest that sent Hansen and Brown to live on tropical Isla Palenque, Panama for six weeks last summer to document their experience.

This contest is part of Amble's mission to shine a light on emerging destinations like Panama's Chiriqui province while emphasizing the importance of preserving the world's most spectacular natural and cultural wonders.

The 12-part online travel video series will be released Mondays.
