I felt very privileged to be able to attend such a local party on Pitcairn. As Jacqui said, “who says there’s no nightlife on Pitcairn”. I for one was shocked but incredibly pleasantly surprised.

If you’ve noticed throughout this story, I have used people’s names that live on the island. That’s because everything is done by names on Pitcairn. There are no addresses. There are only 50 people on the whole place and many families have been on Pitcairn forever. Thus the maps of the island list people’s houses by name, and directions go something like take a left at Steve and Olive’s house to get there. It is pretty cool and very unique from my perspective.

All of this aside, what struck me the most and made it the most difficult to leave was that you feel a small part of the island. By the time you arrive, everyone knows your story. Gossip travels on Pitcairn like wildfire. Plus, everyone is so welcoming. It makes you feel like you are at home and always comfortable.

It is a very rare and exciting place to be. A place of history, warm people, characters and a place that will make you ponder the mere existence of it. There is no place like Pitcairn Island and I do not say that lightly. There is no other place in the world, so isolated, with 50 English speaking British citizens who manage to live, for better or for worse, on this paradise in the middle of the Pacific.

My words cannot do the place justice; it needs to be experienced in the flesh. But let me conclude by saying this. As I sped away from Bounty Bay to head back to the SV Xplore on my way out back to Mangareva, I was overcome with emotion. The whole island came down to the dock to say goodbye and waved as Randy and Andrew steered us through the rough seas (although I got soaked).

It was enough to make me shed a tear as I left Pitcairn. That’s never happened to me before from anywhere I’ve visited. My time on Pitcairn, albeit short at only 3 days, will linger forever in my mind and in my heart. There are many mysteries surrounding Pitcairn Island and its history, but it is the wonderful people who made the trip and make the island what it is.
