Pitcairn to Henderson adventure

sunny 28 °C
View Pitcairn Islands/French Polynesia 2009 on Utrecht's travel map.

Just a quick update on my travels to the most remote country in the world: it looks like we might visit Henderson Island after all. Jack the mechanic has been working on the boat for the last 5 or 6 days and it seems the engines are quite ok again. Well, you never really know but Kurt called me and asked me if I was ready to go on the luxury cruiser Bounty Bay haha...Austrian humor I guess. So we are leaving Pitcairn tomorrow morning, spend the next day wandering around Henderson Island (the island is a Unesco World Heritage Site by the way) to see some endemic bird species, do some snorkelling and what else comes up to do and see. We do come back to Pitcairn to pick up some food, booze and cigarettes though which the locals are buying for us tomorrow when a small cruiseship comes in.
Nothing much more to tell now, apart from my strenuous hike to the Highest Point and enjoying the magnificent views for the last time. We have a small birthday party this evening so last time to say hello and goodbye to all these people. The whole country is invited!
Cheers and thanks for reading about my adventures and we might see or read eachother during some other travels!

Hey Michael, was just reading through your entries from Pitcairn. Good to see you made it (?) to Henderson Island. Hope there's some photos to show for all of this - looking forward to seeing some / as many as possible! :)

Hi Michael, I just read about Pitcairn Island on Readers' Digest (Asia Edition) for June 09. It is a lovely island... Hope to read more of it~

That is interesting. I am doing a research on customer satisfaction regarding Maori cultural products. This is part of my study. It would be really great if you could participate, as you have been to NZ already. The link that brings you to the questionnaire is: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/T6D2827 The questionnaire will only take 5 min and is very easy.

Thank you very much,
