New Ireland Bike Ride, PNG

A few years ago I rode a bike with a group, starting at Kavieng and we rode down to ?????. Spent about a week in all. Really beautiful, wish I'd had time for the diving as well though, since it is meant to be excellent.

On the way down the coast we stopped to visit a woman who feeds eels for tourists. Cathy Hiob, used to be an international air hostess with Air Niugini but decided it would be more fun to look after eels at her village, Laraibina, which is about a 45 minute drive from Kavieng in the New Ireland Province. (actually she told us her mother died, and her tribe was matriarchal, which meant she had to go home to take over! Cathy also operates accommodation for backpackers which mainly caters for the cyclists which frequent New Ireland.

AnywAY, we could hand feed her pet eels!

I think a King tide innundated much of the island a year or two back, but other than that I doubt very much anything has changed. You'd probably still be able to find that same fellow and the same truck still going.

It probably reminded Cook (or whoever) of Ireland. I guess it was raining at the time. Also, after renaming most of the world, they were probably struggling to come up with new names for places.

The first travellers from the ‘old world’ of Europe to see New Ireland were the Dutch, The first European ship ever to sail around, and name, Cape Horn at the southernmost tip of South America (earlier ships had sailed through the Straits of Magellan to reach the Pacific since Magellan in 1521) was the Dutch sailing vessel Eendracht. Jacob le Maire, with his pilot Willem Schouten then sailed across the Pacific Ocean and on June 24 1616, sighted the Anir/Feni islands and named them St.John's Island, because it was that Saint's day. They continued NW along the coast of New Ireland, thinking, such were the difficulties of determining longitude at the time, they were on the north coast of New Guinea island. They carryied with them New Ireland’s first recorded, and probably reluctant, overseas traveller. He was nicknamed 'Moses' by the crew and had failed to be ransomed by his people for food, following an attack on the ship in which three New Irelanders were captured. He went with the ship to Jakarta where it was impounded and no more is known of 'Moses' fate.
