Escape to Paradise

I am very excited ...today I booked a 12 day vacation to Bora Bora, Tahiti. This has been a dream destination for as long as I can remember so it really is going to be a once in a lifetime holiday. I started collecting brochures and making enquiries with travel agents five years so I can hardly believe I am actually going. The best thing about waiting so long is that the pricing has dropped substantially so we can now afford 4 nights in a overwater bungalow and 4 nights in a beach bungalow. With the rest of the time being  spent in transit and Papeete. I am so looking forward to the amazing scenery, perfect weather, luxury accommodation, warm water and the French Polynesian cuisine. As we are going in May, I now have a 12 week count down to get myself into shape so I look Gisele below (although I fear that will take a little longer than that). I also have to start shopping for  my tropical resort wardrobe for the trip before all the summer fashion disappears from the shops. I think half the fun of a trip is in the planning!

I am sooo jealous, this has long been somewhere that i long to go but the distance, my kids schools vacations and my serious fear of flying very long distances has kept it from becoming a reality! I am however so happy for you..and cannot wait to hear and see all about it..how very exciting! Looks definitely like one of the prettiest spots on earth and my nephew who went on his honeymoom said it was incredible and beyond his expectations....think you are in for a serious treat!
