My first visit to a Pacific island was to lovely Vanuatu a little over two decades ago and I fell totally under its spell. I still have a vivid memory of our first morning at Warwick Le Lagon Resort, sitting on the verandah of our overwater bungalow on Erakor Lagoon as the sun rose, watching the locals paddling to work in their canoes, their big wide smiles and greetings of hello ringing clear across the water. It looked like nirvana to me and so very different from my usual drive to and from work on congested roads. It was a peaceful, idyllic place and I think it was the first time I had truly relaxed on a holiday!
