Tahiti Time

Blog / April 2014

Finally, a vacation. And the best one ever!

Oh my, did I ever luck out with this one…My new friends in Tahiti hooked a girl up and how!

Quick lesson: Tahiti and Bora Bora usually hog the spotlight, but French Polynesia actually has 178 other islands that are equally gorg. We’ll be visiting Taha’a, Rangiroa and Tikehau.

And if you are already resentfully hate-reading me right now, best to click elsewhere. You’ve been warned! (Also, why you gotta be like that?)

Good morning, Tahiti! You are looking well already.

Then we hop aboard this Air Tahiti cutiepie en route to Taha’a Island Resort. (That’s pronounced Ta-Ha, as in I’m-having-a-Taha moment!)

And then we arrive here. This is also the moment I knew the extent of awesomeness that was happening.

The crown adorning my head, meanwhile, is not helping my delusions of grandeur.

That’s glass beside my bed, where sharks will swim by.

Don’t worry, though! There are only sharks during “feeding hour”, which doesn’t ease my nerves at all.

Delicious, no? Just guess who’s next to this party.

Aaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!!! (But no need to overreact.) By the morning, they will be gone, and this will have arrived.

Naked daytime nudity at the Kia Ora, anyone? Personally, I’d rather swim with the sharks.

Some fab French Polynesian dancers, of course.

Though I obviously cannot dance, proof I was also on said island.

Last stop, my heart has the sads, at Tikehau Beach Resort. I don’t play favourites, but this room had particularly good vibes.

And that’s it, Tahiti and your lovely private islands! Don’t know how other islands can compare, though I will let them try.
