The Journey So Far | 220 Days in the Autonomous Region of Bougainville

Video | I touched down on the remote Autonomous Region of Bougainville, Papua New Guinea with my partner exactly 220 days ago. Back then, I didn’t know what to expect… I was wondering, would I love it or hate it? And I kept thinking whether I would want to leave early or extend my stay? The only thing I knew for sure was it would be a JOURNEY, a journey of epic proportions! Well, this is how my journey in the Autonomous Region of Bougainville, Papua New Guinea has turned out so far…

The Majestic Lake Billy Mitchell in the Autonomous Region of Bougainville

Video | As I approached the summit of the volcano, a thick blanket of fog covers Lake Billy Mitchell/Eruovi in the Autonomous Region of Bougainville, Papua New Guinea. All of a sudden it lifted to reveal plunging crater walls, landslides, thickets of vivid green ferns and the majestic lake itself. Several minutes later it disappeared from sight once again.

Into the Mountainous Region of Rotokas

Video | Several months ago I’d never heard of the area of Rotokas in the Autonomous Region of Bougainville. Yet here I was about to disappear into the mountainous terrain for 3 days of trekking. I still knew very little about the area. A couple of conversations with volunteers on the island whom had visited. And a brief information pack providing an overview and advising to take warm clothes. However, these glimpses were nothing but positive and it sounded like the Rotokas region would be nothing short of spectacular. Mountains, volcanoes, river, streams, waterfalls and caves, surrounded by the dense rainforest that only the island of Bougainville can offer – what more could you ask for!?

The hidden live bridges of Bougainville
