Setting Sail To Sunny New Caledonia

Standard

I recently returned from a trip to New Caledonia.

I had never wanted to go on a cruise before, but as there was a group of us, I thought why not!

Here is a selection of some of the things we saw…

First stop, Nouméa.

We were fortunate to be able to take a Segway tour of Parc Forestier (Forest Park).

I love riding on the Segways, it’s the best way to get around!New Caledonia - Noumea Forest Tour 10New Caledonia - Noumea Forest Tour 01 New Caledonia - Noumea Forest Tour 02 New Caledonia - Noumea Forest Tour 03 New Caledonia - Noumea Forest Tour 08 New Caledonia - Noumea Forest Tour 09

The other highlight at Forest Park was getting to see the flightless Cagou, a delightful bird that is now quite endangered.

Another stop was at Lifou.

We also stopped at Maré Island, but I was too busy swimming to be bothered with my camera!!

The thing I think I will remember most fondly (other than the Segway and Cagou) was the beautiful sunsets from the cruise ship.

I was spoilt and it was difficult to chose which ones to post here.
