    il des pins <3

    November 6, 2016 in New Caledonia ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Am Morge am 5i simmer los richtig Hafe und hend nachere 3- stündige schiffsfahrt d Insle vo de Pinie erreicht.
    Fasch echli kitschig gsehts uus a dene wunderschöne, flache, fiine Sandstränd! Und s Schnorchle isch natürli au spannend gsii :) (au wenn die Koralle da au chli mitgnoh sind...)
    Zum abschluss vo demm schöne Tag simmer denn na so schön verrägnet worde 😅 aber das isch ja halb so schlimm bi dene Temperature ☀ 🏝 😊

    We started our day at 5am, went to the Ferry who took us to Il des pins. After our 3hour boatride, we arrived at this wonderful place.
    All these beautiful flat and bright beaches with some palms 😍 snorkelling was great as well (even if the corals here are a bit damaged as well)
    It's truly a paradise!
    To finish the day, we got a natural rain-shower before boarding the ferry 😅

    After visiting Madeleine Waterfall, we found a cozy "campground" with cocks who play our alarm clock in the Morning ;)

    After last nights fiasco we thought today we start searching for a campground much earlier. Of course this time we found one on the first try and arrived there at 10 am. We did some laundry and spent most of the day inside the car because it started to rain. Took our clothes 3 days to dry🤗Read more

    First day on NC- Roads

    November 3, 2016 in New Caledonia ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Mir hend hüt Morge oise VW T5 entgäge gnoh - s lüchtende Airbag Zeiche im Cockpit isch ois scho sehr bekannt vor cho 😅

    Denn simmer is Centre Culturel Tjibaou, was sehr spannend gsii isch.

    Nachher simmer richtig Süde gfahre, bis mer zunnere unteerete Strass cho sind und wider kehrt händ... D Suechi nacheme Camping het sich leider als nideso eifach erwiese. (wie erstuhnlich ^^)

    Schlussendli hemmer bimene grosse Platz nebet de Strass Parkiert und welle schlafe. Wil d Sandra es Grüsch ghört het und denn bizli fest Panik gschobe het, das irgendöpper um s Auto schliicht, het de Jan müesse as Stür chrüüche und losfahre 😅
    De Jan isch biz en arme gsii jaa... 😅

    This morning we got our rental car. A Volkswagen camlpervan. We then drove to the Tjibaou Cultural Center north, where we learnd about the nativ "Kanaks".

    We got some supplies in a supermarket along the way and them drove south to find a campspot. All we found was an unsealed road, so we had to turn around. It was already dark when we found a little gravel patch whrer we parked and made our camp for the night.

    About 2 hours later when i (jan) was already asleep, Sandra panicked because she heard something or someone sneaking around our car. So i jumped up and we drove of in the dark. Then after another 40 minutes we found an actual campground and parked outside of it (because it was obviously already closed).

    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!)
