  • Bora Bora, the Pearl of the Pacific

    Bora Bora, the Pearl of the Pacific
    Bora Bora...a name which evokes a place that is already close to being considered as "paradise". I actually had the chance to go there for a week; sailing in one of the world's most beautiful lagoons, enjoying the marvelous views, and of course, taking lots of pictures.

    Discovering the Marquesas archipelago (part 4): Ua Huka
    After visiting Nuku Hiva and Hiva Oa, we finally landed on the last island of our Marquesas trip, Ua Huka. We decided to spend 3 days on this very small island as everybody told us that it was the most magic and wild one, absolutely different from all the other islands. And indeed, we really made a trip "into the wild".....

    Diving with Sharks at Miri-Miri
    Diving in French Polynesia is really a fantastic activity as you have the possibility to see a lot of different fishes in amazing underwater diving spots.

  • Nightlife in Raiatea???

    Nightlife in Raiatea???
    As for the LC-A race location at least one is needed to be about "Night and Music Delirium (bar, view, park)" I thought myself, wow, this one will be hard to find for my stage locations about Raiatea Island..... let's say it short: there is absolutely NO NIGHTLIFE on Raiatea.... :( But perhaps I could find a good place to shoot at night...?

    How I Survived the Hurricane called Oli
    For the very first time in my life I experienced a hurricane. It was Hurricane Oli that came over Raiatea island the 3rd of February 2010. And as it occurred exactly at the time of my stage of the LC-A race, I couldn't avoid to take some pictures and share this experience with you in a location, even if the hurricane in itself isn't a "real" location....

    There's one very special place on Raiatea I'd like to show you: it's located in the village of Tevaitoa on the west coast. This village has a place that can perfectly symbolize 3 important moments of the history of Raiatea and Polynesia. On the same place you can find a marae, a protestant church and a battlefield of and ultimate fight against the french army in 1897...

Didn't absolutely understand what was the name of this place and what it could be.... Curious to know more about this strange place? Don't worry, I'll explain it to you :)

  • Papeete, the Big City of French Polynesia

    Papeete, the Big City of French Polynesia
    If you have the chance one day to visit French Polynesia, the city of Papeete will be the first place you'll see and visit. If you expect the mythical image of Tahiti, you'll be disappointed, because it's not the right place for this! But there are other things to see...
