After seven days of trekking through the green-clad mountains and valleys of the Owen Stanley Ranges, it was time for a bit of R & R before heading home. Unfortunately in Port Moresby, R & R stands for razor-wire and raskals, and we were seeking rest and relaxation. Consequently, Nick, Imogen and I headed for Loloata Island (a low-key dive resort), some twenty minutes by car and a further twenty minute boat ride across Bootless Bay from the PNG's capital (after walking almost 100km, any place called bootless is an attraction).
It wasn't that far away in distance, but was a world apart in ambience. Bobbi and Jodie had similar ideas and joined us for a couple of pleasant days of post-trek recovery and easing oneself back into the real world (which means that Loloata has wifi connectivity).
