"My wife and I took a vacation to what has been called by travel experts as the "most beautiful place in the world." Ten wonderful days in Tahiti, in French Polynesia in the South Pacific. I have been to 49 of 50 states, visited 24 countries on 6 of 7 continents, but nothing compared to exotic Tahiti and the lush green tropical islands and crystal blue waters. The driving force why we went to Tahiti was my wife. While at the Polynesian Cultural Center in Hawaii the year before, she heard the beat of the Tahitian drums and knew right then we had to visit Tahiti. The drums did it!! On the main island of Tahiti, we walked the entire city until we located the best jewelry store and my wife purchased a pearl that was actually recovered by a Tahitian diver in the waters nearby. A jeweler friend back in Ohio mounted it for her into a ring surrounded by diamonds. Moorea was even more beautiful. With no TV, radio or newspapers, we enjoyed the quiet of our private cottage right on Cook's Bay, and swam in the waters and paddled an outrigger in the Bay. There were more stars at night than you can imagine. We were half way around the world, and the 10 magnificent days seemed like we left earth. It was the best vacation in our lives to the "most beautiful place in the world." Just seeing French Polynesia made us believe there is truly a paradise on earth, and not just on the Travel Channel."
