MoreDespite Grump’s longstanding aversion to cruises, there was no way he could pass up the opportunity to join an ‘expedition cruise’ to Melanesia. After all, this little known corner of the Pacific Ocean included any number of delectable destinations, not least the myriad islands that made up New Caledonia, Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands.So Grump and Sandra signed up – for two weeks at sea in the MS Caledonian Sky, and what would turn out to be two weeks of discovery as this pocket cruise ship made its way north from New Zealand up through Melanesia to Papua New Guinea.

Along the way would be encountered isolated communities, novel cultures, lush tropical vegetation, volcanoes – and, if one was Grump, a series of self-induced melancholic episodes that threatened to ruin the whole trip. Whether it was a contemplation of the failing of friendships, the nature of political correctness or just the trials of old age, Grump just couldn’t help immersing himself in gloom – despite his far from gloomy situation.So, Melanesia, Melancholia and Limericks provides not just an insight into the fascinating islands of Melanesia (and the not-so-fascinating depths of Grump’s melancholia) but also fifty brand new and not in the least bit melancholic limericks.

Most of which Sandra found profoundly crude. Inevitably.
