Alright all, have you ever had that need to just get up and go? Where/when/and what..are those really necessary questions? I’ve spun the globe before and where my finger landed is where I went. Luckily it didn’t land in the middle of the ocean, but rather on Bora Bora. Awesome, I know! So, on this most amazing trip, I landed in Tahiti, and subsequently visited Bora Bora and #. The sight from the sky was something I couldn’t imagine. As I boarded the boat from one island to the other and turned completely around, I realized this place was a bit of heaven. I can’t say I’ve seen any place more beautiful in my life. Literally, you could stand in one place and do a 360 and wow, it looked like a post card as far as the eye could see. The Blueish green waters and the views of the hills is a view I’ll keep in my heart for the rest of my life.
It was the perfect place to play with the rays, watch the fish from the over-water bungalow, and it appears feed the sharks. As we exited the boat and were informed we should hold onto the rope, the guide fed the sharks from the other side and a good 20 feet away. We were told “Do not to cross the rope”. No problem. We are over here, sharks are over there and we are happy and we know it. Needless to say, the sharks were not provided with the same memo. The jerks crossed the rope and even swam between us and thankfully kept going with only a brush to the leg. All I could say was, I’m certainly glad they were the well fed kind of sharks. The rays on the other hand are the big floppy dogs of the sea. A big wet sloppy hug and kiss from a ray was about enough to make me throw the fish towards the others on the trip!
This trip was the 5 Star trip that took us to the Four Seasons in Bora Bora and two other gorgeous resorts on the other islands. They picked us up near the airport and took us to the resort. The boat was made with gorgeous teak wood and we felt like royalty. It was beautiful and so very peaceful. The one thing I was super impressed by was the fact that we could leave the room for less than 5 minutes and the ice gnomes had our buckets refreshed. We didn’t even see the staff and magically every time we turned around, wa-la, there you go more ice. I almost just had to throw it out just to see how quickly it would return.
Gosh, when I think back, there was so much to see and do inclusive of island hopping, snorkeling, diving, pineapple plantation tours, 4-wheeling trips, and jet skiing. While I’m ready to go back I’m also looking for the next adventure. So many places in the world to go and see, and if you have one you love, send it my direction! I’d love to hear all about it!
If you are out there right now… Happy Traveling!!!
