    Noumea

    April 26, 2016 in New Caledonia ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Not very impressed with the first port of call, which was Nouméa, New Caledonia.
    It is a French colony and by all the things I'd been told and read, it was supposed to be like the south of France.
    Well first off we docked in an industrial port, so the cranes and containers took the edge of the view of the bay, which itself was very pretty, and could definitely be called south of France like.
    There was a free shuttle to the town which was a plus point.
    But I'm afraid that the town itself was very run down. The buildings where of the style of the south of France and twenty or thirty years ago may have looked like it, but not now.
    Anyway at least I've been to New Caledonia, next stop is Mystery Island which is uninhabited and supposed to be beautiful, watch this space... Lol.
