If islands are your thing, like they are ours, then a trip to the South Pacific is a bucket list must. Yes, they're expensive to get to and yes they area French, but the Society Islands are just the most beautiful places we have ever been. They are relatively undisturbed, with the exception of the northern part of Tahiti. They are pristine. They are bright green, jagged peaks and rolling mountains in the middle of a multi-hued blue canvas.
