After 4 days at sea we caught our first glimpse of Papua New Guinea at 10am this morning. Exciting times ahead.
Highlights of the passage
* A spectacular light show made by dolphins jumping through phosphorescence. Magic.
* Hearing the election results via SSB radio – good to still feel a bit connected to the outside world!
* Picking up hitchhikers (two birds who decided Confederate looked like nice digs for the night. They stayed clinging onto the deck for about 8 hours).
* Aforementioned hitchhikers were not house-trained and decided to shit the night away, all over the boat. It smelt like a pet shop until it rained the next day.
Looking forward to some kitesurfing and village life in the Louisiades! We have brought a whole lot of supplies for trading recommended to us by friends aboard Sikkim who were here earlier in the year – so hopefully we get a good welcome. More updates from PNG to come.
