Review

"When Danish explorer and filmmaker Thor F. Jensen set out to complete the world's first circumnavigation of New Guinea in a traditional sailing canoe, he wanted adventure. And that's exactly what he got. Travelling 6,300 km through treacherous seas over 13 months and 21 days starting in 2016, Jensen braved the brutality of the ocean (and the fear of local pirates), made lifelong friends (in master sailors Sanakoli John, Justin John and Job Siyae), embraced Papua New Guinean culture (including receiving a traditional 'spell' for safe travels from an old man who had lost most of his teeth), and fell in love (with an Aussie anthropologist he met along the way). You will hold your breath from the very first chapter of Salt Water and Spear Tips; like Jensen did when he fell overboard at the start of the voyage after the canoe unexpectedly hit a wave and knocked his balance - drowning his iPhone and resulting in a stern lecture from his fellow sailors. "I was reassured to see the sailors didn't want to lose the dim dim [white person] on the second day of the voyage," Jensen writes, with his trademark sincerity and tongue-in-cheek humour. The adventurer tells his story with brutal honesty, capturing PNG in all its glory: the flaws and beauty. It'll make you want to embrace your inner explorer and book a trip to PNG. Or, at least, watch the Shailene Woodley sailing drama Adrift from the comfort of your couch. Either way, adventure awaits."
