«Papua New Guinea in 5 Days»

A 1992 Fam-Trip Diary

Business partners in Australia had warned her. Papua New Guinea is not for women travelling alone and, moreover, not interesting at all. Only mine workers and scientists travel to this country, they said. Nevertheless, Gabriele Ruttloff-Bauer set out on 12 July 1992 to explore this little-known tourism destination. A Swiss tour operator wanted a first-hand report. It was a quick tour, with a packed itinerary typical for a tourism industry familiarisation trip. With the help of a local incoming agency, however, concerns quickly disappeared and Papua New Guinea and its people became an intense and exciting experience in this extraordinary and diverse country. 

This book is the author's original travel diary in German language illustrated with her own photographs - from her 1992 perspective.
