Our French Polynesian Honeymoon!! Part 1: Tahiti

Honeymooning!!! This is right before we head off to Bora Bora. 

(Goal: Get the honeymoon up on the blog prior to going on our babymoon.)
We didn't actually go on our honeymoon until 10 months after our wedding. Not much thought went into that decision (actually lack of thought is probably more accurate); but in retrospect, I'm glad it happened that way. Decreased stress of honeymoon planning while simultaneously planning a wedding allowed us time to save more for our honeymoon, and we weren't exhausted from the exciting yet tiring wedding day.  

Folks have asked how we chose the location. I personally don't do well with too many choices to pick from. I figured this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to stay in a bungalow in some 'far away land' as I had always seen portrayed in Costco... if we could swing it. So my choices were narrowed by bungalow locations, and we eventually settled on Bora Bora and Moorea. 

We did our research on Google and TripAdvisor and ended up using Custom Tahiti Travel (Jackie Schlumper) as our agent. Can't speak highly enough about Jackie. She is amazing!... just like the reviews said!
