Before we got married we contemplated our honeymoon destination. There are lots of places we want to visit together and we considered as honeymoon destinations. Hawaii and Mexico were near the top of our list – both are relatively close to where we live and offer great deals to honeymooners. We both would also love to drive up the West coast – from SoCal to B.C. – and see the sights along the way. In the end, though, we based our destination decision on the answer to this question: Where can we go now, as DINKs (Dual Income, No Kids), that we won’t be able to go when we have children in tow? We can pack kids onto a plane and fly 2-5 hours to Hawaii or Mexico and experience a fun family vacation. We can also pack kids into the back of a car and road trip up the coast. But…we will never take kids to Tahiti – it’s too expensive, far, and really, not kid-friendly. So, we decided to go to our dream destination on our dream honeymoon: Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora Bora.

We had a blast in French Polynesia! We relaxed, ate, drank, swam, snorkeled, went SCUBA diving, kayaked, rode ATVs, rented a scooter, swam with sharks and sting rays, and toured the lagoons. Here are some pictures from our adventures:

  1. Man, that water is so stunningly blue, I wanna go! That looks like so much fun! Also, you guys were awesomely tan on the last day: well done. Much better than burning, which was my reaction to the tropical sun.

      Ha! The pictures are deceiving then because we, too, got a little burnt on our honeymoon. Luckily it wasn’t too bad, but neither of us tan very easily.
