Our backs are packed….

… we are ready to go.

Two months ago we decided to resign our contract in Vanuatu and leave after 6 months. Several reasons led to this decision but mainly because we had the feeling to be on a dead end. So we decided to continue with our adventures.

It seamed that our dog Tanna could feel the change and got more and more attached. Douglas, our cook prepared something special for us before we left. He cooked Bunja: kumala, sweet potatoes, chicken, island garbage, tomatoes, onions and garlic in coconut sauce, rapped in banana leaves. The whole thing had to be cooked for 1 ½ hours in the ground, covered with hot stones.

The last day we did a hand over to our boss. It was not easy to say goodbye to the people and embark the boat. We will miss them all and especially our little dog. Our heart felt heavy and we tried to focus on our coming adventure.

Sitting on the boat we turned around once in a while to get a last glimpse of the island. Just to make sure that every little detail will be branded in our memory. But how could we forget such a magical place?

The evening before we left we met with our staff for some kava and beer and were surprised that everybody came. We were so overwhelmed for their thanks and gifts, they all touched our hearts. And we touched theirs.

Afterwards we went out for dinner with Olive and Tommy and had a very open talk. They both were so sad and when we said goodbye we all had tears in our eyes.

Why does it always have to be so difficult to move on again? Thank you for meeting those special people.

Lukim yu back again my friends!
