    He stated: ‘It is a gorgeous part of the world, and is still fairly unblemished by the industrialized world.

    ‘You have to make a real effort to get there, as it is about four hours’ flight from Tahiti, so it is not the most popular location.

    ‘Very couple of individuals have really hung out there – however that simply implies that those who do make the effort to go, will opt for love and empathy and interest to truly learn about the islands.

    ‘Once you exist, it takes a very long time to truly get in touch with the islands and with their culture.

    ‘The Marquesans don’t speak any English, so you need to discover other methods to interact with them.
