Many of us spend hours of getting away from it all - of far from the madding crowd. Two men from the Solomon Islands inadvertently did just that and 29 days escaping the rat race. They lost at sea for over four weeks. Livae Nanjikana and Junior Qoloni off from Mono Island on September the 3rd in a small motorboat to travel 200km to New Georgia Island. It was a trip they had on several times before. Soon after they set out, they were by a storm which havoc with their navigation system. They lost their ability to their location or find their bearings at sea. The storm them off course and they ended up off the coast of Papua New Guinea.

The two men upbeat about their unplanned adventure. Rather than distressed about their once-precarious plight, they the potentially life-threatening escapade at sea. Mr Nanjikana said: "We didn't where we were but did not to be in another country." They survived by eating oranges they had bought for their journey and coconuts they out of the sea. A Papua New Guinean fisherman spotted their boat and authorities them. Nanjikana said: "I forward to going back home, but I it was a nice break from everything." However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, they will not able to travel from Papua New Guinea to the Solomon Islands for a little while yet.
