For me, food is a big part of travel. Growing up, we used to not care as much, but we also didn’t have as much of the luxury to splurge on fancy meals, especially when traveling! I remember going to New York with my family when I was 6 or 7, and we would eat… Read More Dining at the Intercontinental Bora Bora
When I got back from paradise, a few people asked if I had also brought back a nice souvenir–or otherwise subtly implied as a baby. HA! I had considered it, thinking it could be a Bora Bora baby, but we had promised each other a year before seriously trying and we were just shy a few… Read More Staying at the Intercontinental Bora Bora
The last time I rode a jet ski was probably at least 15 years ago in Thailand! It was definitely cheaper to do in Thailand too. But jet skis are a fun and exhilarating way to see the entire island of Bora Bora! It probably takes less than an hour to circle the whole island,… Read More Jet Skis Around Bora Bora

It was definitely a deal because it was advertised as “8 nights for the price of 5.” For Tahiti, that’s… Read More Honey, My Parents are Coming on our Honeymoon…!
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
Okay, I’m going to admit here that I did not sufficiently research resorts and places to stay before jumping on the Costco Travel deal that we saw. I was pretty much lazy and didn’t call right when the dates to sign up started and waited two weeks thinking “la dee da, who the heck spends this… Read More Where to Stay in Bora Bora
I bet that any time you decide to travel to Bora Bora is a good time! 🙂 But let’s face it, everyone wants to travel when the weather is ideal! Weather-wise, I feel like it may be hard to officially guarantee anything, so I would think about when can you get the best deals instead… Read More When to Travel to Bora Bora
