Usually when people travel around the South Pacific, they go by plane. But did you know that some do it by canoe? That’s right! A group of seven canoes paddled from New Zealand to Molokai, Hawaii—that’s 15,000 miles! As you know, I love skipping. But if I tried to skip 15,000 miles, I’d be pretty pooped!
The paddlers called their journey Te Mana o Te Moana, which means “Spirit of the Sea.” They are the Pacific Voyagers, and they come from all over the South Pacific: Tahiti, Fiji, Samoa… even the Cook Islands! Along the way, they were guided only by the sun, the moon and the stars. And their keen minds and traditional knowledge, of course!
Keep up the good work, folks!
