Fiji Update

I’m not dead. Ok, I have a very limited amount of time to write this and the connection sucks, so it is going to be short. I have a much longer update on my laptop, but I can’t get that onto here as this computer has no USB slots (which gives you an idea of …

35,000 Feet Above The Pacific Ocean

I’m writing this in route from Port Villa, Vanuatu to Honoria, Solomon Islands…. I had an interesting experience at the Port Villa airport. When the flight with my plane to Honiara landed, there were a bunch of police and TV cameras waiting. I didn’t know what was going on. I assume it was a politician …

Planning New Guinea

I’m getting ready to go to Papua New Guinea (PNG). My original plan was to fly to Port Moresby back in July when I was in the Solomon Islands. However, the flight schedule from Honiara was too unpredictable. There was only one flight a week and it was expensive and really didn’t fit into the …

Alive in PNG

I can’t believe they have internet here. It isn’t great, but I can do simple things. So far, my PNG experience has been amazing. The Port Moresby airport is far, far from the worst airport in the world. (which I saw it was on one list). I’m on Kimbe Bay on New Britian Island. The …
