Cook's Bay, Moorea, French Polynesia
Submitted: Jan 30, '08
Great Travel Moment
Moorea. Society Islands. French Polynesia. All synonyms for "Heaven on Earth" Nothing in the world like driving a little rented miniature 5 speed Fiat like a crazed teenager on the only road around the island. And to serpentine up the mountain that looks over Cook's Bay never getting out of second gear with those rpm's screaming. The locals put out wanted posters for me. Moorea has a magic you can't put into words but you can feel in your heart. And only because of threats to divorce me by my wife did I leave what has to be the most beautiful and comfortable place on earth. If I ever get back there again, I will NEVER leave....only if the wife stays also of course.
