Bora Bora Bucket List

…er – really a French Polynesia Bucket List.

But that just doesn’t sound as nice.


Ken and I will be venturing to the islands of Tahiti, Moorea, and finally Bora Bora for our honeymoon.  We are beyond excited.  Well not about the incredibly long flight.  But excited none the less.  Knowing me, I also got really excited to plan as much as possible since I doubt we will ever make it back.  Gotta find that happy medium between complete spontaneity and over-planning.

So, after many days of daydreaming about white (manmade) sand beaches and crystal clear water, here we go.

      I used to always dream about Fiji. But damn! Pinterest and all those Bora Bora photos. We are actually looking forward to Moorea the most. 🙂

      PS swimming with sharks makes me slightly nervous.


  2. So glad you found me on Twitter and WordPress! I’m glad we could connect! We seem so alike with the love for turquoise destinations!
