Road trips take on a whole different meaning in Moorea, where slow pace and frequent stops are the order of the day. And that’s a good thing in an island where the local police take speeding very seriously. #Travel #Polynesia

A protestant church. The arrival of both protestant and catholic missionaries in the 18th century marked the suppression of traditional Polynesian beliefs and culture. As they did in many other parts of the world, the over zealous missionaries destroyed many ancient relics and artifacts, forcing the natives to convert to Christianity. Thankfully, Polynesian culture has managed to survive. #Travel

#Moorea is a less frequented island in this area of the Pacific, overshadowed by the legendary #BoraBora and #Tahiti which garner all the attention. While Bora Bora has its stunning lagoon, Moorea has equally stunning peaks and lush forests as this shot above clearly shows. The bay to the very right is Cook’s Bay, where Captain Cook first laid anchor after sailing from Tahiti. #Polynesia

Ayers Rock or Uluru as it’s known among the aboriginal people, is the largest monolith in the world and Australia’s most recognizable natural icon. Standing at over 1100 feet above the ground, only a small portion of this huge formation is exposed above the earth’s surface. As the sun sets, the rock goes through various dramatic color changes such as this distinctive rustic red hue. #travel #australia #ayersrock #uluru
