Sailing around the world takes you to some pretty incredible places...we get to witness some of the planet's most spectacular natural beauty, explore corners of the earth that few people are lucky enough to set foot on, hike up mountains, dive down in the ocean, and enjoy a sense of freedom that isn't found in a lot of lifestyles. But probably the most rewarding part of it all is the human connections we make, and the different cultures we get to share this one of a kind planet with. And in today's episode, we take this to a whole other level. We find ourselves in the Marquesas Islands of French Polynesia, some of the most geographically isolated islands on Earth, lying more than 3,000 miles away from the nearest continental landmass. This isolation has allowed these islands to develop in a truly special way, and the culture here is one of the most unique we've ever encountered. We were lucky enough to land in this paradise during the Matavaa Festival, which only happens once every 4 years...and it was an experience we will never forget. Join us in this week's episode as we dive into the fascinating history of these mysterious islands, and discover a way of life that was nearly lost.
