French Polynesia 2001: Introduction

In June of 2001, Roger and I decided that we needed some time off. Thanks to his resources, we were able to stay at any Le Meridien in the world for a discount. So we looked at the map and the most exotic place that we could think of was Tahiti. Some quick travel arrangements were made with Concorde Travel Management and we were off to French Polynesia.

We really wanted to spend 3 nights at the Le Meridien Tahiti and three nights at the Le Meridien Bora Bora. Sadly, we were only able to get Tahiti for the week. Not wanting to pass up an opportunity, we went ahead and booked a flight so we could spend the day on Bora Bora. We also decided to take some guided tours – one of Tahiti and the other of the neighboring island of Moorea.

I had always wanted to go to Bora Bora and Tahiti since I was a little kid dreaming up Doingworld. It didn’t disappoint at all. I am glad that we got the chance to go and am actively sending out resumes to the various hotels on Bora Bora so I can move there – ok maybe not, but a person can dream right? I hope you enjoy the diaries and pictures.
