    Haben uns ein kleines Tiny Home gemietet. 😍 Sehr romantisch. Mit kleiner Küche und Bad. Vor dem großen Fenster kann man wunderbar denieren. 😄

    Ausflug nach Phare Amédée

    February 2, 2018 in New Caledonia ⋅ 🌬 19 °C

    Bootsausflug auf die kleine Insel Phare Amédée ca. 25 km vor der Küste von Noumea. Mega Wetter, super Strand und ne tolle Aussicht nachdem wir ca. 200 Stufen hochgestiegen sind. Beim anschließenden Schorcheln dann noch ne Schildkröte gesehen - einfach traumhaft.Read more

    Zur Vorbereitung auf die anstehende Tour nach Phare Amedee gab's nen Eis als kleine Stärkung. Dann haben unterwegs nen Stopp zum Schnorcheln auf offener See eingelegt.

    Nouméa, Neukaledonien

    November 2, 2016 in New Caledonia ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Am erste Morge in Neu Kaledonie hemmer vo de Brigitte no en Zmorge "becho" und sind denn mit ihre in Carrefour go poste dasmer denn au selber chönd choche :). S'esse da isch priislich sogar no türer als i de Schwiz aber es hett halt au en lange weg hinder sich bises da isch...
    I de nechste paar Täg simmer immer wider id Stadt, an Strand und vill umegloffe. Jez froiener ois uf de VW Bus wommer morn derfed entgegenäh 😊 mir vermissed s Umenandfahre (au wenn autostöpple und ÖV da ganz spannend sind 😉 - Taxis sind vill z tür da... Sogar oisi Host verlangt ca 45chf für 2x 20min fahre..)


    After our breakfast we went to carrefour tho buy food for ourselves. The food here is even more expensive than in Switzerland, but then again it comes a long way.
    The next few days here we often went to the city (Noumea), to the beaches and walked a lot. Now we're looking forward to get the VW- camper tomorrow 😊 - we miss the road!
    (even if hitchhiking and public bus driving is very interesting here 😉 - taxis are too expensive!)

    Noumea New Caledonia

    October 29, 2016 in New Caledonia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Cruise day 21

    This was the forth island we had the privilege to visit on this trip. Similar to Bermuda this Island is an overseas territory of a European nation, in this case France 🇫🇷.

    The interesting observation we made, is that this Island New Caledonia 🇳🇨, Bermuda 🇧🇲and other Islands with European or US influence have a first world feel to it and is clean and public transport etc works well.
    On the flip side of the coin is Islands such as Vanuatu 🇻🇺, Fiji 🇫🇯, Bahamas 🇧🇸 etc. seem to be left to the natives to run. To be honest for the most part these resembled African poverty and hardship. They are mostly shantytown and dirty.

    New Caledonia reminds me a lot of the French riviera and Marseille to be exact.

    Isle de Canard

    October 29, 2016 in New Caledonia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    We got "randomly" selected for a passport check Yeah right- I used a bit of french & mentioned we have a "tour" organized to expedite the process😛.

    Rushed of the boat for another fab Westwood adventure. We got on the water taxi for some snorkeling on Isle de Canard. Spotted a turtle again and there were lots of fish and colorful coral. I got a bit worked up over the stupid tourists stepping on the corral, I yelled at them ( to Roedolf's embarrassment) but felt I did my part to save planet. The volunteers and staff also had their hands full to try and educate the ignorant.

    We wandered around, got a decent coffee and I sprinted down the local bus. I enjoyed speaking some french in the French Riviera of Micronesia.

    Noumea, New Caledonia

    January 27, 2015 in New Caledonia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    We are now in the bustling metropolis of Noumea. Actually it really is a bustling metropolis. New Caledonia mines most of the nickel in the world so they are a very rich island. The downtown is very pretty and the shops and restaurants are plentiful. We unfortunately were there on a Monday which seems to be their day for all the tourist stuff to be closed so the museums and the aquarium were all closed up. We walked over the a great little beach called Lemon Bay or Baie des Citron as they call it here. We went past some very modern marinas full of boats of all sizes and shapes. The bay the cruise ship came into was filled with cruising boats. I suspect this must be a little off the main cyclone path for there to be so many cruisers during the season but I haven't checked that out.
    We did a little shopping along the way. I needed a new light weight shirt for sun protection and found a great little sporting goods store that had Columbia stuff that was just a little more expensive then REI in the states. Jeff needed a full length skin to keep him from burning during snorkeling and found it at another dive shop just off the main "Chinatown" in the downtown area. The snorkeling was great just by swimming off the beach to the coral outcroppings.
    The island is huge and I can see this would be a fun island to explore more in-depth. We should come back when we have more time. The nice thing about cruising on a ship is you don't stay too long in any one place so that the ones you don't like much are left without too much of a bad taste and the ones you really like you are left wanting to come back again.
