Ascension Island

Next on their journey, Wilson and Lukach board a military plane from England and head to Ascension Island, a little explored location in the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean. While there, the friends stay in a cottage atop the highest mountain. From hiking through the lush forests full of land crabs and trekking through rocky landscapes to snorkelling and fishing for tuna, witness their determination to experience all aspects of the island. But, despite the tranquil setting, the boys deal with problems of isolation as they have trouble communicating with the outside world, accessing money from banks at home and saving personal relationships.
