  • Hello!
    I was able to go on a weeklong press trip to Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora Bora in late August. It had been my dream destination for 20 years and lived up to all expectations! I am hoping I can someday return with my husband...

    I will soon have an article link to share about my trip, to be published in a few weeks.

    If anyone would like to see photos of my trip, I have many posted on my Facebook page. Do a search for Word Journeys and "Like" my page and you can view them there.
