Tahiti, 2014.

Such a beautiful island. Surrounded by beaches, and providing numerous high mountains. We conquered Mt Aorai in 2 days. Picked raspberries off bushes along the track. Hiked in 30 degree heat, all the way to 8 degrees when hiking closer to the top. Slept in a small bungalow with a hard wooden floor. Played Uno to determine who would win the only air mattress. Reaching the summit at about 6:30am, I experienced the most incredible sunrise I have seen in my life.

The beaches live up to its reputation, crystal blue waters and beautiful underwater creatures, perfect for snorkelling. I experienced for first ever sunset on an ocean horizon! Living in the east of Australia, I had only seen sunsets on the mountains and land.

Fruit trees - mango, coconuts, papaya, breadfruit, bananas - line the streets. I picked a mango straight off a tree and ate it. Haha loved it.

We took a ferry to Tahiti’s sister island, Moorea. This is where we snorkelled, ate wild sea urchin, and discovered the beaches and bungalow resorts you see on post cards.

Tahitians live a chilled lifestyle. They are all super friendly. One night we had a flat tyre, and 3 people decided to stop and go out of their way to help us.

Can’t wait to go back. Determined to explore the rest of the islands in the French Polynesia.

So long Montpellier, gonna miss you.

Finished a two day hike up one of Tahiti’s highest mountains, Mt Aorai (2066m). It was the most incredible and spectacular view at the top. Whilst watching the sun rise above the clouds, it was the most amazing scene I’ve ever seen. This photo is only a glimpse of the landscape at about 1100m.

Before I venture to Europe, I will be heading to the south pacific for 13 glorious days.

Dating a Tahitian has many wonderful perks, I can tell you that!

This trip will be the first time I meet his family. And if you’re thinking that would be pretty nerve-racking - flying to another country…
