I recently visited the Crown Dependencies (Isle of Man, Guernsey, Jersey) and was fascinated by their strange relationship with the UK. It turns our that places like Anguilla, Montserrat, Gibraltar, Falkland Islands as well as Bermuda and a few other territories also have an relationship.
I’ll be popping in for a few days to see how this extremely successful British outpost does so well for itself. I’ll probably buy some famous Bermuda shorts and rent a scooter to see the whole island.
Australia, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu
I’ll be doing an Australian cruise in November that revisits the eastern coast of Oz and visits 5 stops in Papua New Guinea. Visiting PNG by land seems to be very difficult with transportation and safety, so I’m hoping this way gives me a good taste of what the area is like. It’s okay to be touristy every once in a while.
Are you on my route? Let me know if you’ll be anywhere I’m headed.
