Belated Honeymoon

I'm thrilled that Alex and I are finally taking our much-belated honeymoon. As of this weekend, we're headed to the South Pacific -- first Tahiti then the island of Moorea. Turns out that Tahiti is only 8 hours from L.A. and we got a great deal from Air Tahiti Nui. So for others out there considering honeymoon destinations, you can totally make it work if you do your research.

The *best* part is that we combined my Hilton points with some my mom gave us to get our room in Moorea. Then we were able to upgrade to an overwater bungalow! (see above)

I still have a few days to finish studying my beginner's French for the trip. And in the meantime, I'll be drooling over these great French Polynesia photos from photographer Catherine Mombourquette.

Hi, this comment isn't directly related to this post, but I was wondering if you have any more information about how you made the balloon canopy. I saw the original last night and today I found yours. I have an idea to use it in a similar way, but not as a fabric canopy.
