Dear editor,

Just wanted to say that I had a blast during my recent visit. Went diving, water rafting and trekked some of the most untouched natural forests on Guadalcanal. I was pleasantly surprised at how accessible everything was, a short drive, a short boat ride and there I was, exploring and diving. Its amazing that such a place is just a plane ride away from Brisbane. Thanks for the adventure, for the hospitality. Already sharing pics and telling my mates to come visit - and I will come back soon as I felt there was a lot more to do and see. Keep smiling, you are definitely still the happy isles!
