MOOREA

1

Local lore has it that Moorea is the island that Tahitians go to for their vacations. Less heavily touristed, less expensive and more laid back makes it perfect for someone already accustomed to the paradise life. Moorea has all the attributes that come to mind when you think of a middle of nowhere location in the South Pacific. Gorgeous, warm translucent blue green waters, tropical sea breezes, palm trees swaying overhead and remote motus with deserted white sand beaches. Throw in a healthy assortment of marine life and you have the makings of a perfect Polynesian getaway for the ages.

The particular age in mention happens to be 40, yup you heard right I just hit the mid life crisis. Let me tell you though visiting Moorea for a week with my 2 ladies was anything but a crisis, more like a moment of clarity to get ready to tackle the next 40. We were beyond reach and moving at our own pace kinda like the island itself which only has one road circling the island and not one stop light or stop sign. Which was nice but didn’t matter much since the majority of our traveling was done on the water. We kept true to the Matthyssen style and once again shined the resort or any guided tours and relied solely on our intuition and sense of adventure to show us what lies around each bend in the waterway. When we weren’t exploring the lush interior or the dreamlike blue lagoons of the island we were indulging in explicit amounts of Hinanos, Tahitian rum and fresh fish.

Does it get any better than this? – RM
