Pitcairn Island, Pacific Ocean


You can never be sure that once reaching Pitcairn Island, isolated from the other populated Pacific islands by hundreds of miles of open ocean, you will be able to drop anchor and pay a visit. Isolation is something the dwindling population of about sixty hardy souls have learned to live with. Due to high swells, Fallado was forced to drift around the island for a couple of days before we could eventually anchor off Bounty Bay and go ashore and meet some of the descendants of the infamous "Bounty" mutineers. We were literally only ashore for a few hours, but every minute of it was worthwhile, giving us a brief insight into life on this remote British outpost.
