Partying on Bora Bora

Bora Bora has been amazing. It is a picture perfect island and I understand why many people go here for their honeymoon. When we arrived we found a small bay on To’opua right next to the Hilton Bora Bora Nui hotel, so we had good neighbors. Chad and Bret’s birthdays were coming up, so we decided to have the birthday bash on African Innovation, because there’s more deck space here. The party was a huge success where a large group of people took part in the festivities.

In order to recuperate from the festivities we did a hike to the top of the 2nd tallest mountain on Bora Bora. On one of the pictures I’m holding Makai, the Huskie from Broken Compass, belonging to Bret and Chad.

Here are my feelings after getting to the top after what was a relatively strenuous hike:

Besides drinking … ehm … socializing I mean and doing strenuous hikes, we also did a bit of free-diving and spearfishing.

Towards the end of the stay we were fortunate enough to get a new crew member. On the second to last morning, Peter, jumped ship and joined us, so now we are 5 again. Peter brings age, experience and a keen sense of humor that will be a welcoming addition to the AI team.

The stay on Bora Bora has been awesome and I honestly can’t wait to do it again. But now adventure beckons and it is time to cast off for Palmerston. A place with no airport and only a supply ship that reaches them every 6 months. Hopefully we won’t run out of toilet paper, because rumor has it that they have little to share. Here’s an image of AI on the hook.
