I went on Rurutu as it was part of the Australes islands and also to see where a very good friend used to live for a couple of years. The normal time to go there is September to November to see the whales. The island doesn't have a lagoon ...

Tubuai – Australes island #2 - French Polynesia

My second stop in the Australes was Tubuai, the place to kite as I found on the kitesurf website of Tahiti-kitesurf.

I went to the same guesthouse as proposed by the author since the kitesurf started to be a family affair, pension vaiteanui. When I arrived of course, it was ...

Raivavae – Australes island #1 - French Polynesia

This was my first stop in the Australes archipelago. The island receives very little tourists and therefore it is still an authentic Polynesian island.

3 weeks with a baby

I didn’t hide anything... neither had time to make one. It’s not mine, it’s my nephew, Louis ;-) My sister and her husband, Tijn, came to spend almost 3 weeks around Christmas and New-Year with me in New-Zealand.

You can imagine that the van I bought wasn’t ...

After Thailand, it was time to come to New-Zealand. I didn't think first that it will be so long to fly there but it took a couple of hours, something around 10 hours. I made it through the Bio Security check with my dry food and my camping gears ...

Leaving Thailand

It wasn't easy to leave Thailand, especially the south islands. This would be easily understood by people who went already there. I planned to stay 5 days only on Ko Lanta, and ended up staying 10 days instead. I guess I only made it to Khao Lak because I ...
