Marquesas and Tuomotous

FRENCH POLYNESIA | Saturday, 21 June 2008 | Views [866]

We've spent the last few weeks cruising through these two groups of islands.

The Marquesas are volcanic peaks, high, green, and the place for tattoos. These are a real work of art there, unlike anything you have seen elsewhere. But no I didn't get one.

The atolls of the Toumotous have been spectacular. In particular Makemo, which had the most incredible reflections in absolutely still waters, unadulterated by polution or air movement. Totally remote, quiet and perfect. One of the most stunning places in earth - wait till you see the pictures!

Of to Moorea for 10 days during the ship's refit then back onto the Cook Islands
