I grew up in Canberra and studied philosophy, maths and economics at ANU. In 2005-2006, I lived in Honiara, Solomon Islands and when I departed, I think I left a little piece of my heart behind. Since 2009, I have been living in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea and I fear that my eventual departure may be just as traumatic.
In part, this blog is a little way of giving back to two countries that have given me so much. (My previous online tribute to Solomons – a wiki called “Exploring Solomons” that several friends and I created – can be found here.)
