Today I explored Port Vila and what a change from Honiara! The seafront is very touristy – there are cafes, parks and tourist attractions advertised everywhere. I grabbed some cash, got a coffee and hooked onto the Wi-Fi and tried to organise collecting my research permit.
In the Solomon Islands, I have learnt to expect the unexpected. I’ve come to expect to pay a fee here or there for parking your boat or to visit an island. I’ve learnt that when you’ve been told they will pick you up at 9 am, they will be there at 10 am. Well, Zela Adventure did not fail to disappoint on the unexpected.
