Meet the Parents

... a visit from Deb's Mum and Dad

We’ve had another chance to be tourists in Vanuatu with a visit from Deb’s folks as the excuse.

Dad had a new experience when we walked up to Mele Cascades – shoes off to cross the creeks and then he walked BARE FOOT. This is a man who puts slippers on to go 4 metres to the toilet during the night – I didn’t know he even had toes and I’ve been his daughter all my life! ☺


We hired a car and drove around the island of Efate (we actually made it all the way around this time as we went north and didn’t get distracted by feeding turtles and sharks like Deb did when Vic, Narelle, Diago and Bohdi were here)

We stopped for a snorkel and coconut break at Eton Beach and Blue Hole. Very beautiful, a typical “tropical island paradise” type place!


Another trip to Tanna and a climb up the volcano. Mum had hold of Deb’s fingers or arm the whole time and when Yasur boomed she left marks that can still be seen! (She has an aversion to heights, so it was a big ask to get her to stand on the rim of an active volcano in the first place!)

We all enjoyed the Cultural Tour at Jungle Oasis on Tanna. We were welcomed into the traditional house in the base of a banyan tree on the proviso that none of us strange spirit people with white skin kill any of the tribe and they carried Deb in, to show their respect for the group.


Now we're looking forward to heading out to Epi together..... and later in July a visit from Nic's niece, Sarina.
