Bucket List Friday

Bucket List Friday!

Every Friday I’ve decided to feature a Bucket List destination for all of my travelers and soon to be travelers. My Number 1 pick is Bora Bora. I have been dreaming of going here and I’m so going to cross it off my list sooner than later. Not only is the scenery to die for, but the over-the-water Bungalows create such a peaceful, serene atmosphere.

A few fun facts I’ve learned while researching the area would be:

  • The movie “Couples Retreat” was shot at the St. Regis Resort in Bora Bora.
  • If you are truly looking for a getaway, Bora Bora is labeled one of the most secluded lands
  • A lot of the population inhabiting Bora Bora are young adults
  • The island is known to be the most romantic in the French Polynesian (Roamantic Paradise)
  • Women that wear flowers in their hair have a very significant meaning:
    • If you wear a flower near your left ear, it signifies you are married, taken, or have a significant other
    • If you wear a flower near your right ear, it signifies you are available and approachable
  •  You do not have to freight about any poisonous snakes or bugs because the island is free of those species
  • Last, the island has an extinct volcano called Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu located at its center which rises to two peaks

I can’t wait for the chance to explore this beautiful island and learn more fun facts to add to my list.

Keep wishing, keep dreaming and set sail
