We made it!
I’ll be honest when I say this day was exhausting. It’s easy to think of a honeymoon to be very romantic and relaxing, but the effort and energy that goes into actually getting to the destination is often forgotten. I’ll try and make it short.
Departed our flight to Tahiti (Papeete specifically) at 9:50pm and landed at 4:00am. We were lucky enough to get the middle seat open during that flight! We got through customs by 5:30am and took a bus to the ferry “terminal”. We boarded and left for Moorea on the ferry at 5:55am. We don’t arrive at Moorea until 6:45am. From there we took another bus (thank god it was only a 5 minute ride) to our resort. We arrived around 7am. Where it got rough was we were not given our room until 2pm…. Matt and I were running on snacks and probably 3 hours of sleep. Tears were almost shed at times thinking how exhausted and gross we felt. Matt, unfortunately has come down with some cold as well and is trying to sleep it off. So we finally get our room at 2pm, shower, and now Matt’s asleep till dinner. I, of course being Kristi Hibbs’ daughter, cannot relax and I’ve completely unpacked my suitcase, organized the bungalow for the week, and now writing this with a glass of wine in hand.
In better news, the weather is AMAZING!!!! We just missed a huge storm that hit Moorea for the last three days and it’s expected to stay nice and sunny until Friday.
Hopeful things will only go up from here!Read more
