All The Times Barack Obama Lived His Best Life Since Leaving The White House

It’s now been around eight months since the 44th president left the Oval office and Donald Trump was sworn in. For those who miss Obama being the serving president, both at home and abroad, it also comes with the bittersweet knowledge that in 2017, no matter how much we miss him, he is fully living his best life.

Here’s to you B.O., with a run down of everything you’ve been doing since that inauguration.

When he fled Washington for Palm Springs

Almost immediately after leaving Washington DC via helicopter, the Obamas made their way to Palm Springs, California to chill in the pad of dreams.

According to People, the 11,000-square-foot property has panoramic views of Palm Springs valley, a beautiful pool and is near golf courses.

When he kite surfed with Richard Branson

Just one month later, he was off again, this time to Necker Island – the tropical haven in the British Virgin Islands owned by billionaire businessman Sir Richard Branson.

Writing on his blog, Branson said how after inviting Barack and Michelle to Necker, the former President learned to kitesurf. Serial adventurer Branson then challenged Obama to see who could stay up the longest. Obama could, classic.

When he stayed on Marlin Brando’s private tropical island

Another month, another holiday. Palm Springs, Necker Island and even a reported stop in his native Hawaii, the next stop for Barack was the tropical islands in French Polynesia. Obama settled on the private island of Tetiaroa, once owned by legendary film director Marlon Brando. Fancy.

When he went white water rafting

After whetting his appetite for water sports, Barack, Michelle, Malia and Sasha headed to Indonesia for another trip in June where they went white water rafting. We can’t quite tell from the pictures how much Barack enjoyed this, but Sasha definitely did. For a more chill part of the holiday, the family paid a visit to the beautiful rice fields of Bali.

When he stopped at Starbucks and was mobbed

When Obama – and a heavy security detail – stopped for a Starbucks in February in Manhattan (we’re thinking he ordered a caramel latte) there was a screaming crowd loud enough to rival a Justin Bieber concert. The former president did the classic playing-it-cool wave, but we like to think that deep down he was just a little smug that those further down Fifth Avenue at Trump Tower were very aware of the commotion.
