My choice at this time is Bora Bora, in the French Polynesia. Funny thing, I was going to choose Machu Picchu. Then I found the article. Bora Bora is simply a gorgeous place. Its photogenic landscapes make any photographer’s life so much easier when it comes to taking flawless pictures and help anyone understand why this is one of the most beautiful places in the world that could easily be called Paradise.

It is also one of the most expensive places to visit. However, it is a more secluded vacation spot and gets a lot less visitors than Hawaii. It is in fact a famous destination among celebrities. I can imagine how exciting it must be to be able to watch, especially at night, a whole world moving in the crystal clear waters of the Pacific Ocean right underneath the floor of a tiki hut. Bora Bora is a place where I can find everything I like: tranquility, beauty, and adventure. Unfortunately, at this time, I am only dreaming about it.409-bora_bora_1982_-_panoramio    bora bora sunrise   Bora_Bora 5    403-borabora    bora bora Faanui    bora-bora- 7
