Trip to French Polynesia

Posted in Holidays, Places | Tagged , | Leave a comment


I have just received more details from the charter company in Polynesia. This is where we have to pick-up our Catamaran.

In the meantime we have to send them our shopping list for food and drinks so that everything awaits us on board.

Web Space

I have undertaken and actaully started tidying up my Blog due to the fact that I am seriously beginning to run out of space / memory.

Not an easy task. I need to reduce the size of many photos, eliminate some outdated or repetitive posts and so on.

This is obviously not going to be done overnight, too much is involved.

Dax Electric

Honda has brought out an electric powered Dax. It quite appeals to me and brings back excellent memories.

Unfortunately and for the time being, as far as I understood, it is only available for the Chinese market at a very reasonable price under $ 1.000

I suppose I could use some of my contacts to import one but it is probably impossible to get it registered in France.

Ants and more ants

So – heres a Gin you did not expect – destilled on juniper and orange ants……! Yes – you read correct – those little buggers (Lasius fuliginosus) in the forrest, biting your a** when you sit on a stump enjoying the view!

We imaging Sams Island Destillery must have asked themselves, what they had in plenty on the Island, and then thought: “When Noma can serve them in Copenhagen, so can we on Sams Island” ๐Ÿ™‚

The taste from the ants, is very distinctive and very similar to a orange/citrus zest used in other Gins. The taste is very crisp and have a little “zing” to it, and is the followed by the junipers.

The Gin is a small batch production and bottled by hand.

It is not often I have access to 5G on my phone. I like it.
