Coast-to-coast trek over Guadalcanal Island, Solomons

Dawn's golden rays light up Chimiulava

A coast-to-coast trek from the Kuma to Gold Ridge takes Keri over the mountain chain that divides Guadalcanal Island in more ways than one.   I’m freezing, in a country where I never thought I could be this cold. Yet here I am puffing out steam, soaked to the skin and shivering. This is not [...]

The unmissable Kagata surf retreat of the Solomon Islands

We didn't get too many good surf shots, but unlike other surf trips, the surf ended up peripheral

The minx after a couple of beers

A soundtrack to PNG could start with David Bowie’s Space Oddity because as one salty sailor said, “It’s damn remote out here” and a queer place to arrive at.
