Vanuatu Blues

Port Vila Harbor
Port Vila Harbor

I really had high hopes for Vanuatu. They have all been dashed. Vanuatu has turned out to be a total bust.

Its been overcast and rainy most of my time here. That means I haven’t been able to get off the island, take any tours of the island, or even take any good photos of Port Vila. I’ve read my books, scrounged for decent internet (lots of connections but most are crappy), and ate. That has been my last several days.

Oh, I have no clue if I’m leaving the island tomorrow. My ticket to Honoria has me flying stand-by. There is only one flight a week from Port Vila to Honoria. There are pluses and minuses to both getting the flight and not getting the flight.

Given the cloudy weather, I’ve taken a few HDR photos of Port Vila….not that there is much to take photos of here.

Oh well, I’ve set up shop today at the yacht club in the harbor. They seem to have the best wireless connection I’ve found and I get to talk to people who sailed here. Maybe someone can give me a lift to the Solomons.

  1. Thats sad to hear you didn’t really enjoy Vanuatu I really want to go there and scuba dive because I read in a magazine that there are tons of American tanks and equipment from world war II that we didn’t want to leave behind and we didn’t want the French to take it without paying us so we drove it into the ocean. That sounds really cool to scuba dive and see.

  2. Gary,

    I’m so sorry that you’re having the rainy week blues!! Almost the same thing happened to me during my solo jaunt through Australia (it rained literally nonestop) so I had to do tours in the downpower. You’re right to use the gloomy weather to catch up on blogging and internet stuff…I’ll be sunny soon enough.
