Trip: Pitcairn Island

There are [13] stories from my trip: Pitcairn Island

Stingrays & Sharks

FRENCH POLYNESIA | Wednesday, 30 Oct 2019 | Views [12]

In Mo'orea I've done so much above yet almost nothing below. My lack of being in the water on this journey inspired me to book a snorkelling tour with Moorea Miti Tours. How would snorkelling be here compared to elsewhere? The weather was nice today, ... Read more >

After today I reckon I’m a champion trekker on Mo’orea. Mouaputa, meaning “pierced mountain” in Tahitian, literally has a hole in it. Up for a rigourous challenge today I decided to tackle Mouaputa alone despite the recommendation ... Read more >

Down Rope

PITCAIRN | Saturday, 19 Oct 2019 | Views [13]

Wow! Have I done a lot on Pitcairn or what? Today I’d visit a place that’d be the feather in my cap during my time here. Down Rope is recommended only with a guide as someone was seriously injured several years ago and had to be evacuated ... Read more >

Christian's Cave

PITCAIRN | Wednesday, 16 Oct 2019 | Views [18]

I’ve done nearly all of the major walks here on Pitcairn. Highest Point I’ve visited twice, and Tedside, Down Isaac’s, and St. Paul’s Pool once each. The weather was supposed to turn foul today but I wanted to get up to Christian’... Read more >

Rainy Sunday

PITCAIRN | Sunday, 13 Oct 2019 | Views [28]

In much of the rest of the South Pacific, you have to search hard to find something open on Sunday, if anything is open at all. Here on Pitcairn, however, Sunday is one of the busiest days on the island. The post office, treasury, souvenir shop, museum, ... Read more >

Pitcairn, at Long Last!

PITCAIRN | Thursday, 10 Oct 2019 | Views [30]

At 3 AM I arose. Randy was already awake, chatting with some of the ship’s crew. As I gazed across the horizon I could make out a faint silhouette of Pitcairn. Finally I’ve sighted it, and finally soon, I’d be able to foot on it. When ... Read more >

At Sea

PITCAIRN | Wednesday, 9 Oct 2019 | Views [18]

For an entire day I’m on the MV Silver Supporter. My seasickness tablets have worked well; too well in fact because I didn’t sleep all that well last night. Breakfast was more or less what I expected: sausages, baked beans, and croissants.... Read more >

Pitcairn, Here I Come!

FRENCH POLYNESIA | Tuesday, 8 Oct 2019 | Views [15]

Up at 3 AM I was this morning, ready for another leg in my big once-in-a-lifetime journey to Pitcairn. As in the rest of the South Pacific, people in Tahiti are very early risers. Bernhard drove me to the airport on his scooter and then I checked in ... Read more >
