[奥巴马卸任后开启疯狂度假模式] A number of people around the world are stressed1 out about what’s going on in the White House -- but former President Barack Obama doesn’t look like he’s one of them. 全世界很多人都在担心白宫正在发生什么，而美国前总统奥巴马似乎并不在意，奥巴马卸任后开启疯狂度假模式。
A smiling Obama was enjoying being jobless as he rode the waves recently in the Virgin2 Islands with Richard Branson.
Obama, and his wife, Michelle, have spent time vacationing with the Virgin Group founder3 since leaving the White House Jan 20.
Branson writes that Obama, a native of Hawaii, told him he was prevented from surfing by his security4 detail during his time in office, so he jumped at the chance to learn how to kitesurf.
"It was a huge honour to be able to invite President Barack and Michelle Obama down to the British Virgin Islands for a complete break after Barack finished his second term as President and the family left the White House," Branson wrote.
The billionaire said he and the former leader of the free world challenged5 one another to see if Obama could learn to kitesurf before Branson learned6 how to foilboard.
"As you can see in the video, Barack and I both fell many times, but we kept trying again and again and made progress over the days," Branson wrote.
