Vlog #1 Wolf – The adventure Captain – Papua New Guinea – Visit, Travel, Explore, Nature


My name is Ulf and I have the privilege
to be captain on ships and yachts, often in very remote places, which I now would
like to share with you. If you like this, then just click subscribe. And also don’t
hesitate to share it. if you think that someone else would enjoy it. Today, I would like to take you on board the medical supply ship “Ruach” in Papua New Guinea. A ship providing medical teams, training and equipment to the most remote places and tribes in the Solomon Sea Midships! Papua New Guinea, the second largest
island in the world after Greenland, is indeed a fascinating piece of land. Here
you will find not only numerous unique animals, birds and insects but also 800
languages – not dialects. Languages representing 40% of all the languages on
this planet. How come, you might ask? On an island
which we in the West thought was to a large extent unpopulated up to the 1950s.
The same decade, by the way, when the last missionary was said to have been eaten up by the cannibals on the island. The answer is that the tribes had been
living so remotely from each other and being so difficult to reach, that there
has been no communication between them. And when they have encountered each
other, it has not always ended well. The history points to repeating conflicts between
neighbouring tribes because of disputes relating to land, pigs and women – in that
order, actually. As a captain onboard “Ruach”, I did also represent the shipowners and the Health Care organisation YWAM at the opening of the hospital project in Rabaraba. Something which was appreciated to the
extent that the Booga-Booga tribe in Rabaraba decided to honor the captain
of Ruach with the title Chief and Warrior of the tribe. A prestigious honor
indeed. In the next video, I will as a contrast
share with you an Arctic experience onboard the expedition yacht Togo, encountering
both whales, orchas and ice bears, only twenty land miles from the North Pole. So,
stay tuned!
