I've always wanted to visit Wallis, as my father was an American Marine stationed there in WWII, and I grew up hearing stories about the island. I've researched Wallis for some of my writing work, and just from curiosity. I've transcribed the native language from a WWII mimeograph negative loaned to me by a sailor who was there in WWII. My daughter speaks French, so I hope to get her to accompany me on a trip to Wallis someday, as I only speak English. I ride a Kawasaki Vulcan 500 (2008). What a dream it would be to transport it to Wallis and use it there!
Hi Jerry,I actually live in Tahiti Island.. So if you plan to go to Wallis remember that the island is under the equator, the humidity is at 100% all the year, the temperature is often at 86 even the night.. The best period is in July (less rain and much wind)..With a friend I create a museum dedicated to the WWII.. I found many things for years.. I will post pics of the museum..
