Where We Were Today... July 23, 2015
Tanna, Vanuatu

Catherine's cruising handle is 'Sparky', so imagine her delight when Mount Yasur, a very active volcano in Tanna, gave us a pyrotechnic show unlike any other. Plumes of ash blasted from the vents along with lava and chunks of rock the size of our dingy. And we were sitting right on the very edge of the crater. Read our July 23rd, 2015 entry >

Where We Were Today... July 17, 2010
Savusavu, Fiji

We were summoned to meet the village chief in Nabouwalu Bay (we thought we were in trouble) it turned out she was just curious to meet us.

The Tip
Where We Were Today... July 1, 2018
Cape York, Australia

Every year a handful of intrepid Australians driving military-grade 4x4s, complete with snorkels, roo bars and enough spares to build a second truck, drive to the top of Australia. After sailing around Cape York we got a ride from Frank and Wendy who said it would be 'criminal' not to make the pilgrimage by road and stand on The Tip. Read our July 1st, 2018 entry >
