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".

Nothing Like a Bouquet of Tropical Flowers

Though flowers are aplenty in New Caledonia, florists do not appear to be. I was used to a florist (and a pharmacy and a bakery) on nearly every corner in Paris and spent many a long empty moment staring at the colours and the textures of various bouquets. Here the bouquets are all the more fun to gaze at - as birds of paradise and lilies are part and parcel of the natural landscape.

Right, a photo of the bouquet Laurent had delivered back in November for my birthday, and a peek at our furnishings in our little villa in Nouméa (for those of you who have requested more photos of our daily surrounds!).
