And from there, everything has continued to morph and twist and change, and today, I’m not convinced that I’ll make it out of the South Pacific at all!
So many amazing little plots of land and white sand and azure water to explore! So.Many! Fiji alone has something like 300 islands!
I mean, really… I may have to hop on a sailboat as a crewmember for a while to explore all of those places. I just may.
Today especially, I’m dreaming of the Marquesa Islands, one of the most remote places left on the planet. Exactly one passenger ship sails to most of it’s 15 French Polynesian islands. (A container ship converted into a no-frills, 200-passenger ship, which also delivers supplies to those islands, talk about multi-tasking!)
The total population for those 15 islands hovers right around 8,000. 8,000! Sounds like heaven to me! (I really enjoy solitude.) This is pure polynesia, one of the last vestiges of unspoilt (mostly) culture on earth.
I’m kind of obsessed with the Marquesas lately. A little bit. Okay, a lot.
Where do you want to be today?
