My four-week stay in Toowoomba, Australia was colored by a nasty airplane flu I picked up on the flight from Tahiti. But regardless, I had a good time with family I haven't seen for ages and a couple of short, local trips to the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane.
I spent the last day of my stay in French Polynesia wandering around Papeete on my own. This busy, noisy city has lots to offer and I visited the Municipal Market, the waterfront where I first arrived on Vadura many years ago and some of the local parks. The following morning I said goodbye to Tahiti - until next time.
Our trip is winding down as we head back from Bora Bora to the west side of Raiatea. Visiting Anapa Pearl Farm is high on the list, as well as dinner at Fare Vai Nui. Then it would be "mauruuru" and "nana" as we leave the Moorings 48 catamaran at the base and head off for land adventures on Huahine.
