Dear Glenn, I feel privileged that thanks to yours many postcards I have been able to travel a bit with you and see all these amazing exotic places😊... Thanks so much!乂❤‿❤乂

The Marquesas archipelago is one of the five island groups in French Polynesia and includes 12 islands, only 6 of which are permanently inhabited. They are the most remote islands from any continent. 

Nuku Hiva, located on the northwestern edge, is the largest of the Marquesas Islands and is Marquesas' principal island. Its rugged wooded terrain rises to Mount Tekao (1,185 metres) and is drained by small streams. There is no coastal plain or fringing coral reef.
