Voice of Travelers to Noumea

Re-honeymoon ticket to Noumea

Hi, this is Marie from Paris. When our children went off to college, my husband and I decided to take a trip to Noumea. We had been saving up for a ticket to an exotic location for a while. Raising our children, however, was a difficult job and we never got around to actually buying a ticket. After they left, I told my husband we need to buy a ticket to a good location now. Being French, Noumea appealed to me. I told my husband and he instantly bought a ticket to Noumea. Our time at Noumea was very comfortable as we did not have to face any language or culture difficult. We had a great time relaxing by the beaches in Noumea and just spending quality time together. I am anxiously waiting to buy a ticket to another destination now.

Ticker for summer

Hey this is Jack. I visited Noumea with my girlfriend this Summer. My girlfriend wanted to buy the ticket for winter. However, I was interested in buying it for Summer. Eventually, we bought our ticket June because she could not get off from work from Winter. We really enjoyed the amalgamation of French with indigenous culture in Noumea. We tried to speak French so many times. Being Americans, the cuisine and architecture in Noumea looked very exotic. We had fine cheese, coconuts and yams. It was a very relaxing experience. The weather, however, was a little hot so next time I will listen to my girlfriend and buy the ticket for Winter!
