Vanuatu

Arriving in Paradise...

Today we travelled to Vanuatu. After chilly autumn in New Zealand, stepping off the plane into the warm tropical air of Vanuatu was quite pleasant.

Our first stop in Vanuatu is the island of Espiritu Santo. This island served as an advanced base for the US forces during WWII. We stayed at a wonderful little place called Hotel Santo right in town. The hotel was run by an expat from Malawi. What a multicultural place.

As you can see by the stickers on the doors to our hotel, the main reason people come to Santo is to dive the various wrecks leftover from the war.

Tomorrow we plan to get out to see the USS Coolidge which is a large troop ship that sank right in the harbor.
