Island Hopper

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 24 January 2019 in Transportation.

After a flight from Dallas to LA, we had a long 8 hour flight on to Tahiti. For our short inter-island flights, since it was the off season, there were just a few of us on each flight. Two people got on ahead of us, and a few more after, so we all could sit where ever we chose. Everyone spread out and we all had window seats. Located just northwest of Tahiti, Bora Bora is less than an hour away by plane from Papeete, Tahiti.

*In January, 2013 I got to go on my bucket list dream trip to the French Polynesian Islands of Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora Bora. Some photos were posted here on Aminus3 at that time, but there are so many more that I never got to. I will revisit the beautiful island of Bora Bora for this next series.

Makes it sound like a first-class flight with so many window seats to choose from. :-)
Hopefully the island hopper wasn't a bumpy flight.
