Sailing Tahiti to Australia | Leg 3: Bora Bora to Fiji Passage

After having waited in French Polynesia for two and a half months, we excitedly sailed out of Bora Bora around 7:30 am on Saturday, September 4th. Like the rest of French Polynesia, Bora Bora was in COVID lockdown, and we had spent the last week waiting for our departure paperwork to go through all the requisite bureaucratic channels. This required multiple trips to the local gendarmerie (police station), where Grant quickly befriended the two kind and helpful officers, Alex and Bruno.

Sailing Tahiti to Australia | Leg 2: Mo’orea to Bora Bora

It took us about 24 hours to get from Mo’orea to Bora Bora on August 28 2021. Like the rest of French Polynesia, Bora Bora was in COVID lockdown, and we spent a  week there waiting for our departure paperwork to go through all the requisite bureaucratic channels. This required multiple trips to the local gendarmerie (police station), where Grant quickly befriended the two kind and helpful officers, Alex and Bruno.

We made trips to get water, fuel and provisions, but apart from that we had to stay on the boat. We passed the time snorkeling (saw a giant moray eel!) and inventing new water sports.

Once we received our exit paperwork, we were finally free to leave for Fiji.

Our favorite secret spot on the Sunshine Coast 💙 ...

We flew to Sydney to see our favorite stand up comedian, Hannah Gadsby’s latest show, “Body of Work,” at the Sydney Opera House. It just so happens that both Hannah and the Opera House were on our bucket list, and the show was being filmed as Hannah’s third Netflix special. If you are not familiar with her work, we highly recommend both “Nanette” and “Douglas,” Hannah’s first two Netflix specials. Then there is “Ten Steps to Nanette,” Hannah’s NYT best-selling book which is one of the most groundbreaking memoirs I’ve ever read. The world needs more Hannahs, period. ...

Fraser Island is the biggest sand island in the world. Its protected wilderness allows you to immerse in pure nature. Fraser's magic is composed of many environments, including the oldest sand dunes in the world, perched dune lakes including both clear "white water" lakes and dark "black water" lakes; banksia woodlands, heath, patterned swampy fens and sheltered mangrove areas. It's the only sand island in the world to have rainforest growing on it, giant trees growing right out of the sand. ...
