Travelling in times of Covid

French Polynesia’s borders were closed for a while, now they have opened up, but only for American tourists – funny, as the US handling of the Covid situation did not seem exactly like a success story, maybe the colour of the dollar gives heightened immunity? All other travellers must still apply for a special permission to travel and present important motives. Christian’s passport expires in… Continue reading »

Unsatisfied with the situation and unconvinced by existing products, I decided to build an NMEA converter and gateway myself. Later on I started implementing more and more ideas and now my Pitufino replaces… Continue reading »

As we sail into our tenth year aboard Pitufa we wish… Continue reading »

Anything but square

Worldwide the rainforest is shrinking, at least on Pitufa the jungle’s taking over.

While Christian is working on his programming project I’m slowly sewing my way around the salon. It’s not an easy job as each piece has a different size and format, many… Continue reading »

New Gallery Viewer!

Yeah, our blog has finally got a new photo-gallery viewer! It’s modern, intuitive, user-friendly, supports swiping, and works great on desktop as well as mobile devices (at least in my humble opinion). Please let me know if you encounter any bugs. Enjoy all our galleries with the new viewer–happy swiping!
