Boat trip to Ambrym

Our trip to Ambrym island was long but without any problems. We traveled by cargo boat instead of the faster aeroplane as we had about 80kg of baggage (10kg is the per person limit on the plane). The boat trip was around 20 hours long with a strong swell coming through during the night. We both felt a little sea sick at times but managed to get a little sleep.

Our first picture is of Matt sitting on our bed for the night - the roof covering the cargo on the deck below. Sleep walking could have been interesting!
At each stop swarms of people helped move cargo on and off the boat. No order could be seen to the process but as we pulled away all seemed happy that cargo and people were in the right place.
