First Stop Tahiti

20140402-184652.jpg

Today we begin our South Pacific Adventure. This trip has been 7 years in the making. It was supposed to be Jim’s 50th birthday adventure, but it was not to be. Life, family, work and finances got in the way.

To avoid the long flights we’ve added stops in Tahiti the way out and The Cook Islands on the way back.

We’ve read, planned, gotten advice and packed light.

Our trip began with a joyful escort to the airport by Jasmine and James. I experienced wonderful flashback memories of taking my Grandparents, Naomi and Saul to the airport during their travel phase of life. It makes me smile with warm memories.

We will miss James so much. He will be quite the toddler when we return in 6 weeks. We’ve been lucky enough to catch him starting to walk and trying to talk (although we haven’t learned his language yet)! He’s pretty darn good at sign language though.

After a few days in Tahiti we head to New Zealand, then Australia and finally the Cook Islands. We plan to hike, scuba dive and enjoy all the adventures this part of the world has to offer.

We leave knowing that Dick’s is in the capable hands of Walt and Jasmine and Cre8ive Empowerment is going to thrive and grow under Saul and Jess.

We can’t wait to share our True Love Adventures: South Pacific Style with all of you. We hope you enjoy the blog posts!

Arrived and in our dream room over the water!
I always thought this would be cool and it really is. The Pearl in Bora Bora is truly lovely. The view and architecture is beautiful and we are floating over coral nurseries that are growing like flower gardens. It really is enchanting and certainly feeds the soul of this Pisces. I get to be one with the warm salt water and the beautiful fish!

  1. What a fine trip you have planned. Not too hard to get fresh sea food. We look forward to the continuing adventures of this trip. North or South Island of New Zealand?
