There are three main reasons why I started this website and blog.
First, I’m engaged to a lovely Tahitian man.
Second, I had the opportunity to visit Tahiti in 2014, and it was INCREDIBLE. But, it definitely is the lesser-known and lesser-visited of tropical islands out there. Yes we all know Hawaii, we all know Fiji, we all know Bali, but what about Tahiti? Bora Bora? Moorea? Surfers: maybe you would know. Ever heard of Teahupoo? Where the annual Billabong Pro surf comp is held, and where waves can reach up to 7m. Yes, this is Tahiti. If you’ve seen the film Couple’s Retreat, it is set in Bora Bora.
Tahiti might not be as popular as other famous islands, but it is a place rich in culture, history, beautiful people, breath-taking scenery, mountains, marine life, and of course, coconut trees. I started this website with the aim to inspire you, and inform you of the wonders of Tahiti.
Third, as of February 2016, I will be calling Tahiti my new home. Over 22 years of living in my current home of Australia, I will soon move to a new country, with a new language, and a completely different way of life. Crazy. I know. Daunting? A little bit. Now what better way to prepare myself for this big change, than by creating a website with everything you need to know about Tahiti!
Not only do I hope you are inspired and informed by this website, but for me as well.
