  • The red dust of the "Sud"Let me fill in some of the details of our recent camping and explain why James needs a shower so badly... We left Noumea and travelled south to the tip of the country. It is only an hour away from Posted by Arin MacDyer in A Year of Summer | Oct 15, 2014

  • Last Days down the West CoastWe left Hienghene on another bright and very warm day, and headed for a while back down the east coast before turning inland to cross the island back to the west cost. The day ended up fairly uneventful, as Posted by Lamb Ham in Pip in New Caledonia | Oct 5, 2014
  • Day 11 at HiengheneWe had a fairly quiet day and the kids were tired. One annoying thing about our accommodation is a local rooster who thinks that 3am is a good time to start crowing. We rented kayaks and paddled briefly along Posted by Lamb Ham in Pip in New Caledonia | Oct 3, 2014
  • Days 9 - 10 at HiengheneWe headed on from Poe across the heart of New Caledonia, and into the so-called "wild" Northern Provence. In fact we had not seen another large town since we left Nouméa. Even the supposed center of Bourail was little Posted by Lamb Ham in Pip in New Caledonia | Oct 2, 2014
  • Days 5 - 8 at PoeSorry for the delay in blogging, but there was no internet at Poe. We left our accommodation at Tour du Monde with one last fine breakfast...

  • Day 13 - Lifou,New CaledoniaToday the only way to get ashore is via tenders. Passengers who have done this trip before have said there is always an issue with tenders. The only put a few in the water, they take forever to transport people Posted by Christinesolo in South Pacific | Sep 28, 2014

  • Day 4 - A Quiet One in NoumeaPredictions were for a hotter day so we decided not to do a long walk in the midday sun. We headed to the Nouméa Cultural Center in the morning to see some native Kanac art as well as contributions from Posted by Lamb Ham in Pip in New Caledonia | Sep 26, 2014
  • Day 3 - Route du SudWe drove out past Nouméa to the rugged back country of the southern region of New Caledonia. The landscape surprised us somewhat. I actually found it reminiscent of the Flinders Ranges, with red earth, rugged hills, pine trees and other Posted by Lamb Ham in Pip in New Caledonia | Sep 25, 2014
  • Day 1 - The FlightIt is a nice short and simple flight of 3 hours to Nouméa (a lot better than to France). We arrived after dark and it was raining. The country roads were incredibly dark. Our schematic map from our first Posted by Lamb Ham in Pip in New Caledonia | Sep 24, 2014
