Adventure Scrapbook – Solomon Islands
In a country comprised of over 900 islands spread out over a vast area of the South Pacific, transportation is often an enormous challenge. Many Solomon Island villages are connected only by the sea, and the locals have become very adept at moving everything via motorized canoes, including livestock. With no roads to a remote rural training center on the island of Makira in the Solomon Islands, I witnessed the process in action and it was something I will never forget.
