EP62 Hello KIRIBATI ! Getting OFF the beaten track

We spend our last night at sea and arrive in Tarawa, Kiribati. It’s our first ever visit onboard ‘Double Trouble’ to a country in the northern hemisphere. And boy, is it hot and humid! After a very quick check- in process, we set about getting re-provisioned and resupplied. Fresh veggies are in short supply and very expensive, ( $24 for a cabbage) but we get enough supplies onboard for a few weeks of ‘off the grid’ exploring. We have favourable weather, so its time to up the anchor and head north 40 nautical miles to Abaiang atoll, where we drop the hook in the beautiful clear water of the lagoon and look forward to a few weeks of R&R.
