The tiny states of Oceania, where foreign tourists set foot reluctantly and extremely rarely, have always attracted me with picturesque exoticism and the absence of civilization. Going to conquer the islands, chose four Asian countries for the "springboard" and, as a true traveler, bought a one-way ticket. It was this fact that played a cruel joke.
