Our local dive shop did two or three trips a year. Every year they would go to Cozumel and Bonaire. This was a new trip to Papua New Guinea and Divingabe wanted to go.
We flew from NY to Hawaii, where we had time to rest before our next leg. From Hawaii to Australia, we also had a night to sleep then if was off to PNG.
We were on the boat a week then flew back to Australia where Gabe and I celebrated our anniversary. The rest of the group when leaving Australia flew directly back to NY. There was a stop over in Hawaii where Gabe and I stayed for three days. Due to the dateline we were able to celebrate our anniversary again in Hawaii.
