velico ergo sum
You don't need to be a millionaire (although of course it helps), all you need it to be relatively young and fit, and have quite a hight tolerance of discomfort, and most of the places I listed above you can get to. All of my extensive trips across Melanesia, lasting many months, including the Bismarck's and the Solomons, probably cost less than a single guided tour to Indonesia lasting a couple of weeks would cost you now. It was a long time ago though. I must say I am astonished how few people have revisited these places since I went, or tried to get to.Reading this thread makes me wish I was a millionaire (or is that considered "bankrupt" these days!!), so I could explore all these insane places. There's so much out there that needs attention!
