Marquesas Bound????

Linda has been jotting down prices of food since we arrived in the Marquesas 8 months ago. She put together a document that those headed this way may find useful. If you planning to head this way it may help you with provisioning ideas.

You must be part of the EU being there 8 months

Thanks for doing this! My wife and I are headed to the Marquesas this year and have saved the document for reference.

Hope we catch up to you so we can say thanks in person!

Cheers,

David

Re: Marquesas Bound???

With the availability of good bread throughout French Polynesia our consumption of peanut butter went way up. Stock up on that American delicacy 'cause they only had baby food sized jars priced about the same as gold when we were there. Was not a big consumer of PB before we left but having access to that relatively cheap super good bread quadrupled our consumption and we soon ran out. Fortunately we met a boat that had just sailed down from Hawaii but had to return. We bought there large stock of PB and Tabasco that we'd also run out of.

FYI. WE GOT 6 month visas for FP before we left San Diego. Had to go to the French Consulate in LA and jump through a few hoops plus show financial statement but it was worth it. Used up our entire 6 months in the Marquesas and wished we'd gotten a years visa. Highly reccomend you try and get a years visa if that opportunity is still possible.

Regarding the long stay visa I recently updated the document on How to Obtain a Long Stay Visa and what you will need to do when you arrive in French Polynesia. See our website in Other Good Stuff

Re: Marquesas Bound????

I carry dual citizenship(one from a EU country) and my wife is a US citizen. She applied and was granted a long stay visa. I recently updated a document on How to Obtain a Long Stay Visa and what is required after you arrive. See Other Good Stuff on our website

Chuck
