James & Christine Round the World 2008 travel blog


A 6 hour flight and turning the clock back 5 hours we arrived in Papeete at 3:30am and found no immigration forms required as we are from the EEC and this is part of France!

Unfortunately the luggage didn't come through any quicker and it was about 4:30 by the time we got to the hotel.

After three hours sleep it was time to go back to the airport for the flight to Bora Bora.

The hotel here is great with an upgrade of rooms to lagoon view over water bungalow but I've run out of time on the internet so next time.

Found another internet location so to continue

Spent most of the afternoon sitting on the verandah and paddling or swimming in the lagoon. Although there is quite a lot of cloud the sun is very strong so we still look rather red.

In the evening there was a polynesian night at the hotel with a buffet dinner followed by polynesian dance and music. Was it really only last night that we were in Rapa Nui enjoying the tapani evening of polynesia?

There is almost too much in this trip to take in.

After such a long day yesterday and short night it is early to bed tonight and catch up on some sleep.
