Popotei Ridge, Bora Bora hiking report released

Today I am publishing my final hiking report from our Dec 2017-Jan 2018 trip to French Polynesia.  This one covers a hike along Popotei Ridge on Bora Bora.  This was my third lifetime hike on Bora Bora.  As is standard with many of my South Pacific hiking reports, the new report also includes some bonus snorkeling photos which I’m sure you’ll enjoy.  Bora Bora’s beautiful lagoon is such an amazing place to go snorkeling.  Next up, I need to work on finishing my hiking reports for Easter Island, which was also part of this trip.  Where will we head next in the South Pacific?  Among the places I’m hoping to visit someday are the Marquesas Islands, Gambier Islands, Fiji, and a combination trip of Guam and Palau.  To check out the new report, see report #8 on the Introduction Page under South Pacific, or click on the link below.

Huahine (French Polynesia) hiking report released

It’s been a long time coming (about 8 months), but I finally was able to finish up and publish my hiking and snorkeling report for Huahine, French Polynesia.  Most of the report documents a hike to the summit of Mount Pohue Rahi, which was an outstanding hike with beautiful wildflowers, a pine forest, and outstanding views all around Huahine.  As part of the bonus pictures, you will find the best pictures from four days of snorkeling on Huahine.  Huahine truly was a wonderful South Pacific island to visit.  You can find the link to the new report under the South Pacific section on the Introduction Page.  It is hiking report #11 currently.  Also, you can click on the link below to read the new report.
