My daily life at Solomons

My daily life at Solomons


  A new country, a new, day by day. It’s clear that the lifestyle is different, we need to adapt to where we are at the moment. Here the sun begins to be felt at 6.30am, and even if it’s the rainy season, the heat that is felt makes the office fans my new best friends. The days pass between the office and meetings with stakeholders. We met so many people, that in the end, I don’t know who owns each story. In one of these meetings we met the UK Commissioner, a genuine and sincere person that speaks easily, and loves the Solomon Islands. In an informal conversation, amid laughter and coffee, we get to know some of his tourist experiences in the islands, some good, some bad, but in the end make him look at these islands with a special affection. We got feedback from a different perspective, from someone who knows the developed tourist industry and see the great potential that exists here.

When the work day ends, it’s time to take the bus back home. It’s kind of funny try to find the right bus, in the middle of many little buses and people who talks loudly, we try to find the one who says “Kola Kola Kola Kola” higher and convinces us that he has the best option. We are living like local people, we are living the experience!



About Jessica

My homeland is Madeira island, but i'm from the World. I want to see it with my own eyes, form my opinions and make my stories. That's why i want to know as much as i can about all cultures and differences, landscapes and horizons. Stay in one place and watch life going on is not an option.
