At 4am, the smell of baked baguettes wafts through the air in the anchorage of Rikitea. We are in a French territory after all!
For Sabrina this is especially welcome because her dad Jean-Claude is himself from a French territory: Martinique, located in eastern Caribbean. She grew up going to Lycée Française and eating brie cheese like it’s butter (which is itself consumed in vast quantities).
It’s a special treat for Sabrina to re-live a bit of her heritage, and give her family a first-person look at the famous Polynesie Française… anything you’d like to know, respond in the comments below 🙂

REALLY fun to read all of your posts, Kristian / Sabrina / crew !!
I want some of that brie:)
I still hope to book a trip for later this year, fingers crossed. THANK you for sharing so much of this journey with us all. There’s something for everyone.
Merci Sabrina. I see that the french in you bring back many memories, like our super family trip to Martinique in 2013
My dream was to visit French Polinesia: Bora-Bora, Tahiti…but i dont think my condition will permit. So dream for me. I love you. Dad
Sabrina and Kristian, I am enjoying your daily trip report and jealous of your wonderful experience. Please change the posting of the French flag because the color must be “bleu, blanc, rouge” and not rouge, blanc, bleu as you are holding the flag. In France, posting the flag in that position is a sign of distress and abandon
Love you and keep it up et comme on dit: BON VENT
Have a croissant for us! Enjoy your adventures.
We will devour many croissants in your honor. They are special treats in Gambier as they only bake them on the weekends! Miss you all. Xox
