Episode 24: Intro to French Polynesia

We are back from a brief break and this time we set out to explore the South Pacific on an exotic get-away in French Polynesia. As a young couple, especially before kids, we couldn’t think of another place more romantic than the islands of French Polynesia, so we booked a vacation on the islands of Tahiti and Mo’orea. Tahiti is probably better known than Mo’orea but only because to get to French Polynesia you have to fly in and out of Tahiti. But, just a scant 11 miles north-west of Tahiti is the island of Mo’orea and wow – what a wonderful way to get introduced to the warmth and beauty of the Polynesian culture. In this episode, we break down the accommodations, activities and all the “wish I knew before I went” topics that make Mo’orea a must visit destination. Enjoy!

This week we complete our recent road trip in Europe with a quick four day excursion in Portugal.

After a quick overnight in Burgau we drove up north to Lisbon to stay for the next three days to explore the Portuguese capital along with the towns of Sintra and Evora. Along the way, we picked up some useful tips and tricks on where to go, where to eat, how to get around (especially with a large family) and how to make the most of your time in these amazing cities. If you are a fan of Portugal and looking for some new recommendations or planning your first trip to country, this episode is a must listen. Enjoy!

Episode 18: Big Island, Hawaii

After a couple week break to catch out breath, we’re back at it again – continuing our adventures in Hawaii and focusing on the Big Island for this weeks episode. The island that gives Hawaii its name, Hawaii – or the Big Island – is the largest and southern-most of the Hawaiian Islands, one of the largest islands of the United States and it is still growing!
