Just Back From Sailing on the Aranui 3 to the Marquesa Islands

This trip fulfilled two items that have been on my wish list for a long time: freighter travel and the South Pacific.

We flew to Pape'ete Tahiti where, after a few days to adjust to the time zone, we boarded the Aranui 3 for one of its two week sailings to the Marquesa Islands.  As you can see from the map below, the islands are pretty much out in the middle of nowhere. They are approximately 1000 miles from the island of Tahiti and they are the furthest land mass from any continent than any other land mass in the world.

Over the next few days I'm going to start organizing my travel posts. I also need to get through my pictures as I do want to include some in the posts. So stay tuned for more.
