Sunset Over Bora Bora
James Michener wrote of Bora Bora, “Anyone who has ever been there wants to go back.”
We completely understand his sentiment. However, we might add that anyone who has ever been to Bora Bora gives serious thought to never leaving.
The turquoise-colored waters are indescribably beautiful, the French Polynesian people are as friendly as we have ever encountered, and, as you can see from the photograph we captured from the deck of the m/s Paul Gauguin, a sunset over Bora Bora’s Otemanu mountain is the stuff romantic dreams are made of.
The ancient Polynesians called this island Porapora (first born) believing that it was the first island to rise after Havai’i (Raiatea).
Tomorrow we rent a car and plan to explore the island of Bora Bora and hope to have many interesting stories to bring your way.
