Michelle Elise

I grew up traveling the world with my father, who spent his retired years taking his family to foreign places. He spent my early years refining my tastes in food, music, and art. Now I am a married woman who is starting a lifetime of adventure with my best friend, traveling to exotic locations, our own nation's hottest spots, and experiencing all that life has to offer, together! When I'm home, I spend my time training as a hunter/jumper equestrian, working in the film/commercial industry, & surfing our fun Florida waves.

This. Place. Is. AMAZING! When we hopped on the ferry boat to head here from Tahiti, we didn't know just how beautiful the island we were approaching would be. There she was, out of the water and clouds like heaven on Earth. Spiking her green and magnificent mountain tops into the air, piercing through a perfect halo of white fluffy clouds, floating there like a dream in the bluest water I've ever seen. So blue, it made you think the colors in the Crayola box crayons were dull and boring. This is like the story books tell us as children, dreaming of far away and exotic lands. When we arrived, we had arranged a stay at the Polynesian (Tiahura) Dream Lodge, a private bungalow home on the lagoon on the West side of the island. Unfortunately, ... read more

Oceania » French Polynesia » Tahiti » Papeete March 8th 2014

La orana & what a trek! Over a whole day of traveling to get to some of the most spectacular scenery I've EVER seen! It's our honeymoon and our AMAZING wedding took us on this journey to a far away land. Bali-hai had called us! Right now we are here on an island, FAR in the middle of the South Pacific, one known by the name of Tahiti! Technically, we are in Tahiti-iti (little Tahiti), which is a connecting portion of the island know as the home to the world class, world renowned, world's MOST DANGEROUS wave, Teahupoo. We are staying at The Vanira Lodge, in the town of Teahupoo, in their tallest tree house. Immersed in nature, we are surrounded by trees, flowers, and animals of all kinds. We've had birds, geckos, roosters (by the ... read more

I've been to NY so many times with my family, but never managed to spend the holidays there. Technically, I still haven't, seeing as we got here right after Christmas and we are leaving the day of New Years Eve. JUST missing it all. I'm in the middle of planning my huge wedding, so my father decided to send us on a little "pre-honeymoon treat". Well, not really "send" because he's with us too, and my step mom! It's a nice little double date to the big city. We're staying in one of my all time favorite hotels, the Trump International Hotel & Towers. The people here are wonderful, as we've been coming here for years. We lived here for a few months while I had a corrective back surgery for my scoliosis as a child, ... read more
