The GoPro that Got Away

We often see people going on vacation, and it looks absolutely perfect that we almost can’t stand our friends’ perfect lives. Reality check: many things are filtered—the stories and the pictures only show a narrow segment of the best moments. Our vacation was fantastic, but it did rain some of the times, and we did… Read More The GoPro that Got Away

Visiting Mo’orea–a Lush Tahitian Island

Ah, Mo’orea…such vivid greens and blues, the island meaning “Yellow Lizard.” Sparks some adventurous feelings, no? When I started this blog back in April, we had just returned from Tahiti.

Intercontinental Bora Bora – Thalasso vs. Le Moana

I had only stayed at one other Intercontinental hotel before the ones in Bora Bora and Moorea on this most recent trip, and that was at the Intercontinental in Hong Kong about 6 months prior. I was very impressed by Hong Kong, so I had high expectations in Tahiti. I think our stays in Moorea vs.… Read More Intercontinental Bora Bora – Thalasso vs. Le Moana
