We met in January this year when Sami and Meira were just acclimatising to French Polynesia’s humid climate. They were thinking about the kind of boat they’d like to live on and sail the South Pacific.
Full of fun and enjoying the start of their adventure, spending time with them was one of the pleasures of working for Sail Tahiti! If you’re like me you can’t understand much Finnish, which is a pity because Sami and Meira are keeping an amusing blog of their boat buying and soon to be sailing the south pacific experiences.
With their permission, we’ve taken some of their posts and translated them for you to enjoy. They’ve given a wonderful view of buying a boat in French Polynesia as well as adapting to the Pacific lifestyle. We’ll be adding to this from time to time, expecially as Sami and Meira learn to sail their new boat.
You can also their day to day postings on their blog Soap Bubble Dreams… for a view on their alternative sailing lifestyle.
