Intercontinental Tahiti

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 10 February 2019 in Lifestyle & Culture.

Papeete is the capital city of French Polynesia, the country's economic center. All flights arrive through Tahiti. We first landed on Tahiti and flew a few hours later to the island of Moorea, the first photos in this series, then Bora Bora, and finally back to Tahiti for our last few days at the Intercontinental Resort.

*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.

This LONG series will end with the island of Tahiti, the largest of the islands that make up French Polynesia.

As the snow falls here on top of the ten inches we got last night, I wish I was there. ;-) A beautiful shot.

@Steve Rice: Because of our upcoming April trip to Olympic NP and Seattle, I've been looking at all of the snow on the webcams and reading about the storms. Wow! I hope it all melts by April! ;-)
