[dropcap]A[/dropcap]fter taking you through Voodoo caves and treehouse hostels in Haiti with 6 second Vine clips, I give you part two of our adventure, which took me to the untouched beaches of Ile-a-Vache and the hidden waterfalls of Bassin Bleu or Saut-d’Eau.

For those of you who don’t use it, Vine is an app that allows you to shoot up to 6 seconds of video that loops, which forces you to get creative with what you post, but also opens up the door to create some really cool super short videos. And has become my travel social media obsession. Over the 3 weeks, it seems like my Vine videos caught a lot of attention for myself and Haiti, where the hashtag #Haiti began trending on their front page as a few of my videos went viral, and I was featured on Vine’s front page video picks. This helped my Vine following to go from 300 to a cool 1,900, and my views on the app ballooned to 1.9 million! The most important part of those numbers was the ammount of reach Haiti was getting, and for me it was fulfilling to have viewers become fiends about traveling to Haiti.
