I have travelled to many parts of this world, but it is the Solomons that has stolen my heart. The people, the kastom, the lifestyle, it is all so beautiful.

Take time out to learn pidgin. Eat village food. make some friends and swap addresses. Pack gifts when you leave because after experiencing the hospitality of these people, you will want to return it somehow.

When I left the Solomons the first time, as I walked through the gates of the old Henderson airport I was sobbing. An araikwao (white) woman noticed and walked over to me. She looked at me and said "Dont cry. You'll be back, I promise. I have been- 5 times."

She was right.

The Solomons is like that, once in your blood, you'll be infected by the "Melanesian bug" as we call it forever.

    I've heard there are large crocodiles in the ocean around the Solomons...other than that it sounds like paradise.
