la orana

oh tahiti! we finally meet. my husband has had tahiti on his bucket list as long as i’ve known him and SURPRISED me (well really himself!) for our 9 year anniversary to finally check it off and oh did it exceed every expectation and more.

over water bungalows overlooking glorious lush mountain peeks & waking up to sunrises on the ocean all while laying in bed was just something only dreams are made of, and taking me back to my honeymoon days. since we headed to tahiti, we decided to island hop and wanted to make sure we explore papeete, moorea and bora bora. our tahitian vacation started with exploring the local living in papeete, fruit stands and farmer’s markets all over the island while moving on to swimming with sharks and stingrays in moorea and finally relaxing at bora bora.

oh, take me back.

Travel sparks our imagination, feeds our curiosity, and reminds us of how much we all have in common
