I received a response from the High Commission of French Polynesia. “Your permission to leave has been denied.” WTF?

Travel can be boring and also very lonely. Especially in countries where I don’t speak the language.

I negotiated 3 days free scooter rental in exchange for drone footage the owner could use for marketing. It was a good trade.
Took a dronie of me sitting on my rented scooter and was completed blown away when I saw the result.

Ever since I got my drone, I’ve been wanting to go back and get some footage of the outside AND the inside.
