Two years ago, for our wedding anniversary, we treated ourselves a 14-day cruise from Auckland to Sydney, with an extra week tacked on for a side trip to the Great Barrier Reef. I arranged for our airline tickets using our air miles (free!). The only way we could get to Auckland using our miles was with an 8 hour stop over in Tahiti, from midnight until about 8:00 a.m.
Whoa, can we back this trip up and spend a few days in Tahiti? Of course you can said the accommodating agent. So we tacked on another few days. We had to stop over anyway, why not stay a while.
The first day at the resort where we stayed, a young couple were married and came out to the beach restaurant for a wedding lunch.
The happy couple were serenaded by
a Tahitian combo
They smiled for their own wedding photographer as well as everyone taking pictures from the adjacent beach.
It was a few days before Valentine’s Day, and a perfect time for a wedding and honeymoon, and a wedding anniversary trip as well.
