Lifou was one of the islands that I got to on a cruise onboard of the Dawn Princess.
You will see millions of butterflies and it was very warm there with a gentle breeze most of the time.

    It is so good to see these beautiful butterflies in their natural habit (and not in butterfly houses). What a lovely island. I also like the cemetery with the two different styles. These white flowers are so beautiful. And yes, I second your thoughts about the cruelty with animals. The poor crabs!

    Another fantastic page of your latest cruise ship adventures. I wonder how such a small place looks when entered by 2000 people from a cruise ship. I especially like your photos from the cemetery of Easo.

    Eigentlich sollte man diese armen Tiere am besten selbst ins Meer zurückbringen, ich könnte mich dort bestimmt nicht beherrschen !

    The cruise ship looks gigantic and the island itself is charming indeed...I am sorry for those poor crabs...
