Because Vanuatu is fairly close to Australia, there are a lot of Australian tourists at my resort on Efate Island. And Australia is home to all kinds of deadly and poisonness things, as cleverly pointed out by Bill Bryson in his book: In a Sunburned Country. So, I guess if you are used to things ...

It takes a while for the text box to load to post on Active Rain today, given my WiFi connection here in Vanuatu, but I have patience. Don't know where I developed this patience thing along the road of life because I've always considered myself to be a fairly impatient person. Generally when I wa...

One of the reasons I picked Vanuatu as a vacation destination is because the happiest people in the world live in this country of 83 islands. I mean, given a choice, why would you go somewhere inhabitated by grumpy people when you want to go on vacation? Yet, people still go to Los Angeles; they ...

Yeah, there are people who will disagree and say there is nothing better than shopping in Waikiki over visiting the Honolulu Zoo. But I ask you where else can you order a lunch consisting of a rectangular hard-pressed mountain of rice, dribbled in syrup and topped with two hibachi-style chicken b...

The way I envision sock puppets would re-enact the story conveyed at the Pearl Harbor Visitor's Center: Japan wanted to take over the world, alongside the Nazi's, so President Roosevelt said stop or we won't sell you any oil, and then Japan planned a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. There's a lot...

As my husband drove me to Sacramento International airport last week to embark upon my month-long journey wandering about the South Pacific, he related a story about the macadamia nut lady and Korean Airlines. A Koren Air executive, and daughter of Koren Air Chairman, was furious because the flig...

This afternoon I fly to Honolulu from Lanai to start the 2nd part of my 5-part winter vacation in the islands, and I feel very fortunate to bring the memories of the orchid greenhouse with me. Imagine entering a greenhouse filled with exotic flowers and not a soul in sight. Far as you can see, gr...

Wandering about Dole Park yesterday in Lanai City, Hawaii, a guy interrupted me while I was deploying resonators on a recently captured portal. He looked friendly enough and harmless as he approached, but that's how you get stabbed to death in the middle of a park in broad daylight, heh, heh. He ...

I suppose you could chalk up my attitude to being grumpy but aren't you tired of businesses asking for your opinion, about what you think? They want to improve their service at your expense. I don't like being followed around, having to disclose my location to every Tom, Dick and Harry when I use...

I read a comment this morning that basically said if you don't do things the way I would do them, then you are lazy. See, this is the thing, everybody has their own opinion or at least they probably should, and whatever works for a person is what works for them. One agent's laziness is another ag...
