Of all our journeys, we rate Papua New Guinea number one for its people, wildlife and scenery.  Located on the eastern side of the New Guinea Island, every part of the country is a trip in itself.  In the highlands the men wear only a banana leaf on the lower part of their body and a colored wig on their head, and they still have clan battles with spears.  The islands offer another culture with seafood and yams as their main diet.  The Sepik River has a crocodile tradition that continues to perform the painful puberty rite on their young men.  Keith and I were guests of the Melanesian Discoverer, a luxury catamaran ship that sails around the island and the rivers of PNG.
