This year I didn’t plan any journey to French Polynesia. I planned to visit this part of the Earth, but on a different itinerary. First Samoa (two islands), then 20 days of cruising on a small yacht, Bounty Bay. Itinerary: Samoa – Swains Island (American Samoa), Tokelau, Phoenix Islands (Kiribati). The cruise was supposed to end in Tuvalu (I was going to stay there for a week and celebrate my birthday). From there a flight to Yasawa Islands (Fiji), then Wallis and Futuna Island. At the end of the voyage one week stay in The Kingdom of Tonga. The whole trip was planned to take 45 days.
