Marquesas - August 2012, Part 1

Ka'oha nui!



Cruising on the Aranui 3 again for my third lecture tour (twice this year!). Each time I make this voyage I am entranced with more and more cultural heritage details, as well as blessed to meet more and more heartwarming people. 

Looking through my thousands of photos I can see a nice little story-line coming into focus, but for now I've posted a few random photos of this trip in three different posts:

Marquesas - August 2012, Misc. 

Check out previous posts from June 2012, as well as July 2011 for more Aranui 3 voyages.


Also, please join me during July 2013 for another lecture voyage! Let me know if you need more information. Will be fun!

Please enjoy!





RIP Lucien
