Great write-up. I've always been interested what a solo trip to Tonga would be like. I'll be following along eagerly as you continue your trip.

The South Pacific
Just came across your blog whilst browsing the site. You've certainly got around a bit over the years!! I spent a few days in Tonga many years ago, and my wife and I had a couple of weeks in Samoa mid last year. Your stories resonate strongly. Very slow pace of life, wonderful friendly people and great beaches.

Thanks Dave
Couldn't agree more, the Polynesians are so great. And the singing too!

Island shipwreck

When the tryline beckons
This time the plane did not turn back and you touched down, Tom. Considering the exploits of their Rugby League team and the greatest comeback in RL World Cup history against England in the semi-final...the try on the bell to win it that was disallowed without referral to the video referee...controversial in spades...maybe now was a better time to visit Tonga than your previous attempt. Sometimes disallowed tries make determination stronger...sounds like you scored big time!

Mate Ma'a Tonga
Thanks Dancing Dave. Yes, the World Cup was awesome and I loved what Tonga added to the competition. They were very unlucky against England but everyone is crazy for the team now. Rugby Union has been left in the dust here, and I think in the rest of the South Pacific!

Yes, yes, yes
It sounds like you've become very agreeable in your old age. ha ha. Being up for anything on the road is a great adventure. So many experiences and so little time. Thanks for taking us along.

I really enjoyed this blog. Sounds like you had a great time. I would have loved seeing the Dragon Boats.

Staying within the lines
They have to keep an eye on you and make sure you are standing where you need to be. Sounds like you've discovered some great museums and markets.

Good to see you blogging again
There are times when our work interferes with our travels also. Glad you enjoyed Hong Kong again... sometimes when we return to a location we loved it is hard to release the memory and embrace the changes. Everyone seems to love Hong Kong.

Next October
We are going to Seychelles next October and would welcome an email with specifics about which islands to see and how many days to spend on each one. It has been on the bucket list since the 80's....time to go. MJ

Seychelles
Hey MJ. The main island is Mahe and there are beautiful beaches including the north. You can take a high speed ferry to Praslin which is breathtaking, and then an hour further to La Digue. This just happens to be the most beautiful island I've seen in my life. Enjoy!
