Day Two - The Honeymoon (aka Bora Bora!)

When we woke up at Union Station, there was no time to waste.  We had to drive down to Atlanta in our nicely decorated car to get on plane to LA (not the final destination).

(Special shout out to Lauren, Terilyn and Rebecca for decorating!)

The honeymoon route went a little something like this: 

Nashville to Atlanta (driving - 4 hours), Atlanta to Los Angeles (flying - 5 hours), Los Angeles to Papeete, Tahiti (flying - 8 hours), Papeete to Bora Bora (flying - 45 minutes), and Bora Bora Airport to our hotel (boat ride - 20 minutes). It was quite the adventure!

Our view from the plane 

Our greeting at the Tahiti was 4am at this point!

Our tiny plane to take us from Papeete to Bora Bora.

Can you say stunning?

A view of our resort from the air - the Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort.

We are excited to be here! Only one more mode of transportation to go...the Hilton yacht (tough life).

Part of the resort....look at that water!

The Villa de Day! # 337

Yes, we could see fish swimming under the villa. Please don't hate us :)

This is the first place we relaxed at. It's also the first place I (Anna Claire) got terribly burned. No surprise there...

Snuggle toes!

We kayaked.

We snorkeled.

We read.
(What? Stuart is reading? I know, my thoughts exactly. Thus, the photo)

We drank. We ate. (Passion Fruit marg for me!)

We danced with the natives.

We rode a Hobie Cat.

We biked the main island.

We took a Jeep safari...thought we were going to possibly die at some points, but it was great! :)

We found a World War II cannon.

We made it to the top!

We visited a pearl farm.

And then we said goodbye....

Amazing! A trip of a lifetime. Now back to reality...
