In Panama we had Angie & Ezra who joined us for the next 5 months. An awesome couple who we are very glad we got to know.
We choose to return to some favorite islands but also some new ones. In Galapagos the authorities must have missed us coming in, cause we never got them to visit us which made us 1000 USD richer.
Next stop was Fatu Hiva, and we then continued to Tuamotus. An Archipelago with loads of atolls. We made landfall at Raroia where we met the locals Tatiana and her husband and way to many beer. Makimo and Fakarava where we snorkeled the passage crowded by sharks.
Next was Tahiti and Society Islands and then a 5 days sail to Aitutaki. Here we rented a scooter and drove around the island. Had an incredible dinghy trip to some really cool islets.
Niue was a new country for us. Smallest country in the world with very rough coastline. Snorkeled among sea snakes with amazing visibility.
Tonga, Fiji, New Caledonia....and we were back in Australia. Karin flew home and Andreas stayed a couple of months to fix up the boat before selling.
