I don’t know where you are, but where I live there’s snow everywhere. And more is to come by next week! I love the snow, I do. But after the third or fourth snowstorm, shoveling my car out of the driveway and having to drive to work an hour early just to make sure I get there on time; well, I’m in need of a little sun and a beach. I could say any beach will do but that’s not completely true. I have beaches near me. Cape Cod is a great place to vacation during the summer but now I want the weather to be as hot as it can get. Or enough to warm me up and not think about hot chocolate and snow boots.
There are many beautiful places all over the world and I could list a bunch of them but of all of destinations, there is something about Bora Bora that is so completely beautiful it makes me want to jump on the next plane and stay until spring. The waters are rich in color; the sky is clear with big fluffy clouds in the sky. The sand is warm on your toes. Straw umbrellas to keep the sun out of your eyes as you fall asleep listening to the waves crash to the shore. Depending where you stay, you can be on the ocean in a water bungalow or stay inland in a garden bungalow. Some of the water bungalows will have glass floors so you want to watch the ocean while you’re relaxing in your home away from home. You can opt for ocean views, mountain views or both. All of the resorts have at least one restaurant and a bar. Depending on where you stay, you will have the privilege of having your own private pool, swimming in the lagoon or visiting a spa. If you have children, there are resorts that have kid’s clubs to keep your little ones as happy as you are. And to make you happy there’s snorkeling, golfing, a little hiking to explore the surrounding areas and of course shopping. But who wants to go shopping when you can put a towel over your face, lay flat on the sand, umbrella by your side and no traces of snow to be seen. Yea, I’m already there. Someone please feed my kittens while I’m away for the next two months.
