The Tuamotus Diaries

We stayed four months in the Tuamotus, cruising at a very leisurely pace – to give an idea, for two of these months we stayed in one single, deserted anchorage (Punakura, in the atoll of Makemo). Without the pressure of a schedule, and navigation, attention turned to the day-to-day, and we began journaling. The “Tuamotus Diaries” were created. Here are the 59 entries of it, in chronological order:
