A lot goes on behind the scenes before we set sail to any country. Ashley will spend weeks reading online reports. We talk to the cruising community. Papua New Guinea was no exception. In the broader sense, there are many cities which have unsafe areas. Whether that’s downtown east-side in Vancouver or Southeast Los Angeles. Yes, there are unsafe areas in Papua New Guinea. Many of them. Especially on the mainland but the outer islands are pure bliss.
We wish we had had more time here. Due to cyclone season we were just passing thru. We will most definitely be back in our lifetime to enjoy the culture and personalities that reside here.
Be brave. Be bold. If only for a moment of every day.
