Tahiti...THE END

Tahiti was gorgeous!  We got in on late Saturday (remember, time travelled from New Zealand on Sunday) and stayed at the airport hotel. On Sunday we moved onto a REALLY nice hotel.  Our room was gorgeous and there was an infinity pool with a pool bar. We stayed 2 nights here before taking the ferry to Morea, a smaller island.  Here we had a lot more rain, but stayed at a cozy place in a cabana.  The water here was so clear and it was really fun to watch all the tropical fish swimming right off our dock.  I wanted to snorkel, but again, the rain.

In total we just spend 5 days in Tahiti.  It is a beautiful place, but the rain put a bit of a damper on it. Also, Tahiti is incredibly expensive, so I think 5 days was enough. On Thursday the 15th we took the ferry from Morea back to Tahiti and caught our flight home.  We flew overnight to LA and then after a 4 hour layover, flew to Chicago.

It was sort of bittersweet landing in the states. On one hand we were both excited to be back home but it was strange to think that the trip had come to an end.  I'm so so so glad we did this, it was the experience of a lifetime. Thanks to everyone for following along, and thanks for all your comments and support!
