You guys, YOU GUYS! I am SO excited to hit the publish button on this blog post today.
As you know one of the consistent themes throughout this blog is my never-ending Bucket List — I’ve shared the many fun adventures we’ve had while completing different items on that list, I’ve shared recent updates to my Bucket List, and I’ve even blogged about my ultimate bucket list destination. Over the last couple of months I have dropped a few subtle hints about our upcoming fifth anniversary trip, and today is the day; the announcement you’ll all been waiting for. 😉
We’ve all watched those surprise Disneyland videos, you know the ones… the parents record their child’s reaction as they tell them they are headed to the Happiest Place on Earth. The lucky kid jumps up and down, screams in excitement (and disbelief), and sheds a few happy tears upon hearing the news — well in the interest of full disclosure, I basically had that same reaction when we both agreed on this next vacation. Move aside Mickey, as I need to make an announcement: Cody and I are headed to the dreamy South Pacific in less than four months! (You can’t see me, but I’m totally doing a happy dance as I type!)
Those beautiful Society Islands in French Polynesia are beckoning and we are finally answering that call. This is going to be a trip to remember! We will spend most of our time on the heart-shaped tropical island of Mo’orea and include a stopover on Tahiti, so today I’m reaching out to you… Have you been? We have booked our overwater bungalow (eeeee! I am so excited!), and I’m currently looking for restaurant and excursion recommendations. Are you a diver? I’d love to hear about your experience and the dive shop you chose.
So let’s get to it, I’ll meet you down below in the comments. I can’t wait to read all of your great advice!
Mauruuru (Thank you! in Tahitian)
