IT'S BEEN 10 YEARS - OUR TRIP OF A LIFETIME

Wow, does time fly!  Did you notice the title of this post and wonder what I was referring to?  Well let me tell you,..,...ten years ago, my husband I  celebrated our wedding anniversary in Moorea,Tahiti!

I was actually surprised on this trip and did not know where I was actually going. Well I did figure out the trip (on the tarmac at LAX) once we boarded a particular airline. Hhmmm.....

We first took a flight to Los Angeles for a couple of days and then on to Moorea via Air Tahiti Nui.  The flight was wonderful and was filled with beautiful Tahitian flight attendants and music.  When we arrived at the Faa Airport in Papeete, French Polynesia, we were greeted with live Tahitian music and leis --- so beautiful! The flight from Los Angeles was approximately 8 hours and 45 from Los Angeles.  We then boarded a huge catamaran to Moorea and the Sheraton.

We stayed in a over-water bungalow which was absolutely gorgeous.  Yes, I could see the bottom of the lagoon from the floor of our room. So many different kinds of fish and marine life. It was sooooooo AMAZING!

MOOREA, TAHITI, FRENCH POLYNESIA




From the white sand to the beautiful  turquoise water and beach you couldn't get any closer to PARADISE!  we also rode around Moorea on a moped.  This takes about an hour, with stops at a beautiful Vanilla Plantation.  Night life is limited here, so we were up early every day to explore the island.





Breakfast was brought to our over-water bungalow by a local Tahitian family......Is that cool or what?


This is the over water bungalow that we stayed in on the right side of photo....GORGEOUS!  Don't you agree?




Enjoying a typical French Polynesian Fire Dance!






Our anniversary dinner........



I have to say this was a wonderful place to visit and to celebrate our wedding anniversary!  Would I go back to visit, YES, IN A HEARTBEAT!

Hope you enjoyed my tour of a beautiful destination......
