Hope you enjoyed part 1 of the trip yesterday. We finished up with Bora Bora and we headed back to the airport for our flight over to Tikehau. That’s where we pick this back up today.

The boat brought us back to the airport an hour before departure, so again, we had plenty of time to wait. I marveled over the fact that I was actually allowed to bring my bottle of water on the plane. Amazing. We watched a private jet take off and then our plane came in to pick us up for the longest interisland flight of our trip and the only one over an hour.

We departed to the east and turned northeast for the hour plus flight over open ocean to our first stop, Rangiroa. They actually fly nonstop from Bora Bora to Tikehau once a week, but that didn’t work with our schedule.

The service was pretty much the same as it was over to Huahine - they served us pineapple juice again, and I read most of the way. As we got toward Rangiroa, it started to cloud up in the distance but we slid right into the airport without a bump. We thought we would be able to wait on the plane again, but we were wrong.
