Tahiti: Part I

Branson and I have some awesome friends, the Gee's, who invited us to go on a 
10-day cruise through French Polynesia.  
Thanks to their talents and amazing hook ups, 
we were able to go and spend almost two weeks in paradise.  
It was truly that...PARADISE!  

Day 1: Papeete

Our journey began from Utah where we road tripped down to LA....
^Adios freezing cold weather!

Since we got to LA before schedule, we met up with Garrett's sister Gabes.  After sitting in a car for 10 hours, we decided to do some hot yoga.  Why not!? It was such an awesome workout.  
These LA folks aren't messing around...
Anyways, after yoga we went to a restaurant called A Frame. WOW! This place was SO good.
After a fun night in LA we headed to the airport where we took a red eye to Papeete, Tahiti.
When we arrived we had a day room ready for us at the Intercon....
We hung out at the hotel and kayaked out to a dock in the middle of the ocean.  

We boarded the ship around 3 p.m. and thats when the endless eating began...
We explored the ship and relaxed the rest of the night.

Day 2: Huahine

We went to a beach on Huahine where we snorkeled, jumped off more docks, and enjoyed the sun.

 Day 3: Bora Bora

We spent two days in Bora Bora.  It's a good thing because it was my absolute favorite of all the islands.  The water is absolutely breathtaking. The island itself is so lush and green. 
Ahh I miss it so much.

The first day in Bora Bora we went out to a motu and did some more snorkeling, played bocce ball, and then did our first scuba dive!  This was more of a beginner dive considering B and I had never actually dove in the ocean, or salt water for that matter.  The reef was beautiful and we saw tons of fish.  We also saw an eel. Scary!

The second day in Bora Bora we rented bikes and road around to the opposite side of the island-the most gorgeous place on the planet, in my opinion.
I think i'll let the pictures speak for themselves...

(The coloring got weird on some of these photos when uploading, not sure why. Grr.)

[Considering we have thousands of pictures from this trip, I am splitting it up into a few different posts.
More to come!]
