Spearfishing with local fishermen, chased by sharks, getting tattoos. Living in paradise
Maria and Andre joined Skimpy. After a 4WD ride on the island's dirty roads and gathering fruit we are enjoying coconut cocktails and shisha. Can't beat it!
The ocean is now behind us and what we face is the majestic beauty of the bay, waterfalls, palms and black cliffs. Locals are smiling and welcoming to their land far away from anything else. Yes, we are on land again after crossing the Ocean for 4000 miles. Welcome to idyllic Polynesia the paradise on earth.
After 18 days and 22 hours with nothing but ocean, land finally emerges from the sea. Spectacular cliffs and lush hills. Arrival in 2 hours. We made it! Yihaaa
Almost there. Just beyond the horizont. When light dawn on tomorrow, Fatu Hiva appears. Champagne on ice. Gather the women. The sailors are ready.
We don't see it yet but we can feel it. Skimpysailing.com is back with just 170 miles to anchorage. Polynesian adventures are about to begin... SAIL ON!!
Gauguin and all the sailors say Polynesian girls are beautiful. Is it true or after a long time at sea any girls will be pleasure to our eyes? We hope so!
One of the reasons we feel out of time is because we don't have much contact with the world on land, what is going on back on Earth? Any war yet? Send news!
It feels like Polynesia is around the corner already. Discussing art and economy while enjoying a cocktail and a cigar. Civilized gentlemen
Days seems longer & night is awaiting daylight. Or maybe we are simply further west. Now running on pacific time (GMT-8). Only one more hour until land.
