Tahiti - French Polynesia

My little trip around the world continues...

The longest trip of my life. A must do, but I won't go back that soon as it was : a 22 hours flight, exorbitant ticket price (around 2K+) and the cost of living over there is quite high BUT of course it is DEFINITELY worth it!

Solo traveler in a paradise island ...

Step by step : Get off the plane no jet lag, got off, rent a car, drove around Papeete : explore islands, drove everywhere and made the tour of the island 3 times lol, stopping on viewpoints, taking pictures etc. Amazing beauty... And finally complain about hell of prices and mostly getting WiFi and internet was a joke there (I think I spent over 180E for 10 days!!).

(Life is even more expansive than Switzerland #shocked).

Then as there no not much to do i decided to go to Moorea via the ferry and took the car, rent another hotel and stay there few days. 

Good thing though, people are awesome ! Super friendly nice and easy going! As I was driving I took few people doing auto stop on the road and that was cool, to meet people locals and talk for a bit of a trip.
One of the only places you can swim with Whales! Huge whales 20 meters long !! All near you at 5 meters away.  
Swim with dolphins and sharks and some other fishes in this awesome crystal water 🙏🏾😍. Rent a jetski for 4 hours ! do some diving ! This was paradise .. I will never forget..

- Admire the dark sand, lose yourself in the nature and the beauty of it -
