After 4 days on Moorea island I didn’t think there could be more on offer but when the Bora Bora islands came up on horizon we were left speechless.

City of angels

After tormenting 12 hour flight with a screaming child sitting right next to us [lucky as usual when we board a long flight] we touched down in sunny LA.
