Whale, that was amazing 🐋🤭 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I just returned from my first international trip since we flew from South Africa to the USA back in March.  One of my best friends and I booked a spontaneous trip to one of the few destinations that Americans are allowed to travel to right now—French Polynesia.  This was my third trip to the region, but my first time to the island of Mo’orea.  Upon arrival, I was over-whale-med by the old familiar joys of travel—the rush of a nearly missed ferry, the hilarity of a language barrier, the salty sting of a humid, tropical day and the weight of an overpacked suitcase.  Oh, how I’ve missed this.  Between July and November, humpback whales frequent the area to mate and raise their young. Naturally, I didn’t want to miss an opportunity to see these gentle giants.  We spent the entire day at sea on a private charter, exploring lagoons and keeping our eyes (and ears) open for any hint of a whale. As soon as a spout or hump was spotted, we slowly slid into the water and swam into the abyss hoping to get a glimpse of them.  This young calf danced above his mother as we floated, suspended in awe, on the surface of the ocean. Magical is an understatement.  I will be sharing more information on traveling safely during this time (COVID testing, health precautions, etc.) on my blog soon!  And, I’ll be posting more goodies from the trip on my IG stories over the next few days! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Shot on the new @gopro #hero9black  #moorea #tahiti #humpbackwhale #travel #gopro
