When I left off about describing our fantastic Vanuatu honeymoon (in excruciating detail perhaps?), we had just spent the day hanging out at our resort snorkelling and beaching. One of the best things about going to a resort that does weddings and has a lot of honeymooners is that people kind of expect you to be a bit sickeningly cute. Now, I'll be honest, I am not one to be hanging all over Inspector Climate (I'm looking at you couple who whenever we walked by the pool was macking on each other...), but it was nice to be able to hold hands while snorkelling and not feel too gross, you know?
On our third day in Vanuatu, we decided to do some exploring a little bit outside the city of Port Vila. First stop, the Mele Cascade Waterfalls.
I have a fear of visiting waterfalls and not being impressed, and as we walked up the short trail we came across these:
Don't mind my fugly sunglasses - it's a long story.
And we found ourselves here:
After the waterfalls, we headed to Hideaway Island which is a short 2 minute ferry ride from the main island and has amazing snorkelling and an UNDERWATER POST BOX.
For the underwater post box, you write your postcard on water proof paper with a pencil and then duck dive to put it in the box. Once a day it is attended by a scuba diver who takes the post cards out and mails them normally. It's kind of a weird gimmicky tourist thing, but also so much fun! And the recipients of our post cards were pretty psyched about receiving them!
