Meet Maupiti: the Bora Bora of 50 Years Ago premium
Today, I’m excited to introduce you to Maupiti: one of my favourite discoveries from my South Pacific trip! A fifty-minute flight from Tahiti brought me there, to paradise. It was my first taste of French Polynesia outside of the bustling capital and I couldn’t have chosen a more different island to visit next. Maupiti is small, home […]

Flying in French Polynesia is Spectacular premium
It’s no secret I’ve always struggled with flying. Which, yeah, is kind of ridiculous for someone who travels for living. I’ve taken well over a hundred flights during the past five years, but stepping on a plane makes me nervous.

We tend to do free or cheap activities with very few exceptions – once in a lifetime sights that you have to pay for, and adrealine activities. Taupo Bungy isn’t the highest bungy I’ve jumped, nor is it the cheapest, however it may be the nicest. Bloukrans Bridge at 216 meters is definitely higher than […]
