NPR Sunday Puzzle (Might 22, 2022): A Pair of Islands Puzzle

Q: Take the title of an island. Transfer its first letter two areas later within the alphabet (so A would turn out to be C, B would turn out to be D, and so forth.). Reverse the consequence and you will have the title of one other island. What islands are these?

Regulars to this weblog have a bonus. Whereas I submitted this awhile in the past and do not keep in mind listening to again, I assume it bought added to the queue of puzzles. Nicely, I am unable to change yesterday, however we will change tomorrow! I say we “hold calm and stick with it”.

The day earlier than the puzzle was Might 21. On that very same date in 1976, I used to be residing on Guam and went by means of Supertyphoon Pamela that went straight over the island. And in Might 23, 1960 a tsunami hit the Hawaiian Islands. The opposite trace was “hold calm” which was what it was like within the eye of the storm (a extremely eerie expertise when you’ve by no means gone by means of such a storm) and likewise a callback to a different puzzle the place I discussed hold calm and love Maui.
