The typhoon and a flat surf report??? Week 1.

With most amazing destination in the world, Phonpei is not the easiest place to get to. Unfortunately for me, due to a delay in Brisbane, we missed our connecting flight in Port Moresby. This turned a 10 hour trip into a 25 hour mission. Thanks to Air Niugini for helping me out. They did an amazing job of getting me back on track.

Week one in Pohnpei has been an interesting one to say the least. We had a typhoon close to us on Saturday. It moved off quickly but it left us with 3 days of heavy rain and strong winds. Wednesday the sun popped out and skies were clear.
There are so many amazing things to do in Pohnpei . There were guest at the camp this week and they only had 4 days of great weather.

In that time we manage to fit in snorkeling, hiking, diving, surfing (it wasn’t really big enough and the swell was from an odd direction), and a visit to one of many amazing waterfalls round the Island. There is never a dull moment in paradise.
