A soft rain was falling as I sailed into Port Villa, Efate in the South Pacific. Yet an island paradise it proved all the same.
Leaving the town, the island is dotted with hidden delights and curiosities - reaching them through the jungle can prove a challenge. At one spot I found a reminder of a less tranquil past; a cauldron used by head-hunters and cannibals.
Little villages lie on the beaches, hidden from most tourists by dirt roads. An idyllic life.
In the verdant jungle I came across some amazing trees. Amongst the lush growth the roots and trunks of these giants stood out, living creatures from another age.
Afternoon came with a relaxing meal at a beachside bar, overlooking a bay where someone had moored their boat after perhaps one too many mojitos.
Such is island life.
