French Polynesia is the ideal destination for anyone in need of a little rest and recuperation ‘far from the madding crowd’. Perfect for recharging the batteries, forgetting about the troubles and stresses of the modern world and getting back to the essentials in life. This is all part of what is known in Tahiti as Mana, the spiritual force that connects all living things. You can feel the mana in many ways and through many different experiences. It is in the unique and unspoiled natural surroundings, the thriving ancestral culture and the traditions and lifestyle of the Polynesian people.

Erin and Evan flew from Los Angeles to Tahiti-Faa’a International Airport with Air Tahiti Nui, the national airline of French Polynesia. The flight only takes 8 hours and Erin and Evan landed in a completely different world. Here is the itinerary we prepared for their seven day vacation in The Islands of Tahiti.
