New Caledonia scenes and its rugby team
Flying into New Caledonia you start seeing all the traces of another typical Island nation, out from the plane window you see little coral atoll's and the blue colour's that bring so many smiles to tourists and locals heading home. Once on the tarmac this all changes as you are greeted with a man in customs with a funny mustache and he says Bonjour, from then on in you are well and truly plonked in the France of the Pacific. Noumea is New Caledonia's capital and its flavour is bliss, coastal bliss, fancy shops bliss and amazing people and cars bliss. Every way you look it is coastal living at it's best, the city is hugged with turquoise water and strategically placed are it's cafes & beaches for enjoying. Made for fun the city is surrounded by a glorious sea wall, loads of people are on & around the wall for a bit of running, walking, kite surfers, sun soakers and the good old athletes that chose to watch it all rather than do it.
