  1. Wow. Period. So Livia, in retrospect if one is headed west to French Polynesia, would you go to the Gambiers on the way?

    1. It depends. The Gambiers are amazing during cyclone season but are a bit cold and stormy for my taste in the normal cruising season. If you are arriving with the normal migration, it isn't great in May/June/July (winter at 23S). If you have a long stay visa or EU passport, I would consider making the passage to FP in January and then yes, I would go straight to the Gambiers, spend a few months there, then N to the Marquesas, then on to the TUamotus etc
