French Polynesian To Do List

It was about a month ago that we were sailing through the French Polynesian Islands and I did a very poor job of conveying their beauty, culture, and all the fun things we did.

I have to say, I’m not going to do that much of a better job now.  But I will give you a list of things you should see, do or try should you ever be in Bora Bora, Raiatea, Tahiti, Moorea, or Nuku Hiva.DSCN1581
1) Find a pretty beach and enjoy it.IMG_7879
2) Take pictures.  Pretend you’re in Jurassic Park.

3) Eat at a food truck (a roulette)
