A pouA few kilometers from Fiji is Wallis. Reserved in its magnitude. Hidden from the eyes of others. No tourists, no hotels, good diving, good food and good people.
Crystal clear water, warm that through. Deserted islands, isolated two kilometers away by swimming or kayaking. We did it both ways and had a picnic by ourselves. We took everything in the Kayak, lying on a hammock set up there by a place, we ate our sandwiches, in the company of birds, the noise of the sea, with the sun filtered by the leaves of the palm trees.
The next day we decided to go back. This time swimming. I confess that the outward journey went well, but the return trip took a lot and we arrived at the main island exhausted. We went to collect clams, rested, swam, sunbathed and burned our feet in seawater. We explore the two other desert islands, located very close to this one, and return to the main island for a supper of clams à bulhão pato, on the other side of the world..
We went to a karaoke bar and heard locals singing happily while drinking and partying. We joined the party and sang some songs halfway through. We met two Portuguese who were working there. It’s always good to hear Portuguese in a country so far away.
