Great stuff, Ken. I especially liked the video. Sharks, mandarin fish, and mantas -- it's hard to beat Yap! Can't wait to go back.

Most likely through Manila or Guam.

Almost everyone travelling from Europe will fly to Manila then catch United to Koror in Palau. Short stop then onto Yap.
If you're travelling that far you need to do Palau also.....it rocks!

I just returned also from Yap and the Manta Ray Bay Resort. Just a really great place to stay. I'll try to post a report as well.
