Packing for the Honeymoon! :)

The weekend prior to us leaving for Tahiti was insane. We managed to procure our rashguards, sunscreen, bug repellant, and finish loads of laundry. Oh yeah, I also threw in a pedicure in there so my toeberries would be cute on Tahiti. ๐Ÿ˜€

My must pack list:

  • Sunscreen (this stuff was super expensive down there! We ponied up the funds and bought extra down in Moorea when it looked like we were gonna run out). We had the super duper strong kind for our bodies and I brought two for my face… DDF and Neutrogena.
  • Rashguards – Our friends Max and Sarah recommended it. We spent a lot of time snorkeling; leaving our backs up to the mercy of the sun down there.
  • Bug repellent – I was on a mission to find the portable fan repellent made by Off!; given that it was late September, most Targets had sold out and I found it at the North San Jose one on clearance. I don’t think it worked THAT well… I used it for one day in Bora Bora. The only times I got badly bit was when Hubs wanted to venture and explore the southern part of Moorea and some random time in our Bora Bora bungalow.
  • Lots of swimsuits!
  • Flip-flops – I only packed a pair… would be more useful to pack two so that my feet could get a break between. Highly recommend Reefs. ๐Ÿ˜€
  • Sundresses/coverups – Tahiti and her islands are super casual… I showed up to dinner in a bikini and pareo. The waitresses all wear flip flops out there.
  • Sunglasses
  • Travel documents
  • Print outs of our itineraries. Things are slow and not the most “efficient” out there so it was important that we had copies of all the excursions and reservations.
