A catchy subject that is all.

Hello! I've been a member of TP for almost just over 1 year now. Never noticed this section in the forums until now so thought I'd say hello.

I've got tonnes of verbage on my blogs if you'd like to read, too many pics and can help out with travel advice for West Canada, NZ or Nusa Tengarra (Indonesia).

Anyone here know about Papua New Guinea? I posted a question in the forum a while back but no answer, the travel expert (there's only 1!) has gone awol too :(

Anyways, nice to meet you, see you around


(answer to the question is here)

What do you mean? An African or European swallow?

Welcome to Travellerspoint, Phil! Read some of your blog entries. Seems like you're having a great time there. Sorry I couldn't help you on PNG, but I've heard from people and seen on documentaries (NatGeo, Discovery) that it's a beautiful country.

I'm looking forward to reading more interesting blog entries (about PNG, perhaps?).

Oh my goodness - now there are 2 Python-obsessed Phils on TP!

Welcome, anyway! I do believe I've read some of your blogs before. Great stuff! Hope to catch you in the forums...

Hi Phil!

Welcome to TP!

I won't spoil it by giving the answer - but I didn't notice your link until I did my own search! The bigger question is: How long does it take for the cliff swallows to come back to (San Juan) Capistrano (from Goya, Argentina)?

Papau New Guinea? I know this one!!! It's in the ocean!!!

Hope you are having a wonderful time on your travels and glad you stopped by to say hello! ;)
