This blog on New Caledonia is for those of you who ever wondered what life on a tiny island in the South Pacific might be like. Tired of bracing winter winds, the stress of an inner city or simply dreaming of a life change? This is a blog about what happens when, in the words of Yogi Berra, "you come to a fork in the road, [and] take it".

So What Does a South Pacific Island Look Like?

We soon found out, our first weekend, walking around. Lodged in a hotel for ten days, waiting for our villa to be liberated (we were very lucky to have our new lodgings already sorted out), we took a little time out on our first weekend in Nouméa to visit the surrounds. Not 10 minutes away was the famous Anse Vata, Nouméa's long white beaches ... and Ile aux Canards ... just across the water ...
