    New Years Eve

    December 31, 2017 in Vanuatu

    Nice dinner at Cafe du Village. Sheila had a lobster entre and crab main. Richard stuck with steak! Lovely location on waterfront and fantastic service. We even managed to stay up to see the start of 2018!

    Look around Port Vila

    May 13, 2017 in Vanuatu

    After the boat charter we have a look a round Port Vila and have lunch a t a lovely restaurant. A cruise ship is in so the market is open too.
    Jimmy was tired a bit and vomiting today so he stayed at Hideaway Island today, didn't come out on the boat

    Port Vila town and market

    May 17, 2017 in Vanuatu

    Jimmy hasn't been to Port Vila for a look around as he was sick when the rest of us did it so we pack up early and go into Port Vila for a tourist look. Jimmy is so tall and blonde especially amongst the locals in the market, I can't miss him.
    We spend a few sticky drizzly hours there then get a taxi out to the airport. As is the Vanuatu way, we drop relatives off to their home on the way. We have allowed plenty of time for this and are there a long time before the others come, with our baggage.Read more

    Ekasup Village

    December 29, 2017 in Vanuatu

    Enjoyed an evening show and feast here. Started with a Kava ceremony...numb down the lips and mouth for what's to come! Then a nice meal with tasty meats cooked in the ground...
    Then a cultural show with dancing and pics plus meet the chief and all the folk!

    L'houstalet Restaurant

    January 2 in Vanuatu

    Our second dinner here. Awesome! Run by a Frenchman for 40 years offering a huge fusion/french/italian/island menu. Scrummy! And reasonably priced! Note the great art on the walls...some his own collect some for sale. Great atmosphere and service!

    3rd Advanced cert dive -"boat dive"
    Today we took water taxi again to mainland to get to Port Vila where we go on a boat charter with "Big Blue" dive. It is a bit of a boat ride to get out there with a big swell at the reef we get to. The reef is at the surface but then there is a drop off to 24 metres into "The Cathedral" or chasm you can swim in and out of.
    Here there are a lot more colourful corals and sponges, fan corals, pretty fish in big schools.
    I have been getting a cold over the last couple of days and today it's getting more into my sinus' and ears. Right ear really hurt and squealed 3/4 way down. Didn't do the second dive on that trip. I stayed on the boat but tried a snorkel on the top - it was still pretty but got nibbled by wee jellyfish or something

    Kreuzfahrt Tageuch – Tag 6 Port Vila

    December 6, 2016 in Vanuatu

    Mit Sonnenbrand ging es in die Hauptstadt Vanuatus. Endlich Kontakt mit Menschen aus einem Land, welches für das glücklichste Land der Welt nominiert waren. Leider schien das Großstadtleben und das regelmäßige überrannt werden von Touristen nicht viel davon merken. Daher war die Besonderheit vor allem der billige Alkohol. Selbst Deutsche Alkoholika waren billiger als bei uns.
    Um ein wenig ins Landesinnere zu gelangen sind wir dann zu den Meelee Wasserfällen mit tollen Pools davor gefahren, die sowohl vom Lonely Planet, wie auch vom Schiff empfohlen waren. Das selbige zurzeit nicht fallen wussten wir. Entgegen der Aussagen, waren aber auch die Pools leer und schon bewachsen.
    Unglaublich, aber wahr, ein Franzose war dann noch das Interessanteste an diesem Tag. Er ist Vulkanologe und will in Port Villa ein Museum aufbauen. Was ich nicht realisiert hatte bis dahin ist, dass Vanuatu ein Mekka für Vulkanologen ist. Es gibt gleich 3 Möglichkeiten Lavaseen zu sehen und andere vulkanische Aktivitäten. Ich muss also definitiv nochmal wiederkommen.
