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".

7 Things I Love about Living in New Caledonia

1. The ease of life.

2. The weather: mostly warm and sunny.

3. The people: entirely warm and friendly.

4. The plant life: palm trees, frangipani, hibiscus, irises and more.

5. The blue of the sea, the blue of the sky.

6. Being able to swim, snorkel and go for long walks on the bays.

7. The mountains, la terre rouge, the return of a horizon!

Game inspired by JD Riso (another fabulous writer in New Caledonia - check her out). More lists of 7 to follow. If you like the game, do the same and pass it on ...
