Is there anyone out there who was at Dregerhafen Boys Primary T School or the nearby Girls High School in the early 1960s, either as teachers or students? I (Brian) was teaching at the former, and Pauline at the latter. Have lived in a lot of other places since and travelled the world, but will never forget our PNG

For 4 years I looked out from Dregerhafen towards Tami, so it's quite a surprise that it has taken so long to see what the place actually looks like.
I remember the locals in their long canoes with sails coming across for purchasing food etc from the mainland.I often had weird thoughts of getting a mainlander with a canoe to paddle/sail me across for a weekend on the mysterious isle! Perhaps I was slightly troppo!!!!
The only memento I have left from PNG is a Tami carving!
Great travelogue news, Keith.

What a fabulous trip down memory lane and in 5* comfort. It must be very emotional for you. I'm glad to hear Madang is still a nice place. I have very fond memories of Madang as that is where Bill and I had our honeymoon in 1969.It was very romantic.
Have you bumped into any passengers called Franco and Adrianna Hoeltsch? We know them from our wine tours.
