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".

Windsurfing or Kitesurfing Anyone?

Nouméa is blessed with a mighty wind on its beautiful long stretch of beach at Anse Vata. Whenever the wind is up (which is most of the time), you are likely to find a host of windsurfers and kitesurfers. On clear blue-sky days as warm as 30° C, it makes one want to have a go. No?

When we were visiting NC we were driven up a hill (mountain?) to a park of some sort (I think) that overlooked the ocean. Some of my favorite photos are the brilliant colors of the kites surfing against the blue ocean. Thanks for the memories. :-)
I've just gotten out my photo album and remembered how I LOVED the fish market. And the architecture of the Tijbaou Culture Center. And the experience of sleeping in a hut at Club Med. And all the laughs we had when our family said, "Fromage", at picture taking sessions.
OK maybe there wasn't much I didn't love. Except maybe the lack of handy restrooms on the 3 day tour around the island. I'll spare you the details of THAT!!!

I've been reading to many blogs about it, and its articles aren't bad enough, although I think this blog is better 'cos this sources are brilliant and the way like you had wrote the facts... it's just amazing!
