Summary of the stopover

As we arrive In Polinesia, Marion and myself were expecting to spend time on white beaches and sipping coconut milk adorned with exotic garments. This is how Polinesia is sold to us in all travel magazines. Actually, it is completely different. The mountains, the reliefs, the lakes, the rivers, the intense forests, the rocky peaks. And again, the educational projects for the children of SOS Village d’Enfants, a highline connecting two peaks, a nautical workshop on the Marquise Islands.

Polinesia is as vast as Europe and quite isolated in the middle of the Pacific despite the seemingly easy access ensured by air travel. All this geological diversity, the strong culture, and our need to find some stability all seduced us to extend our stay.
