So I’m off shortly to visit one of the world’s most romantic and beautiful spots in the world – that’s right, Bora Bora. 

Under a one hour flight from the island of Tahiti, is the island of Bora Bora.

Bora Bora is an island in the Leeward group of the Society Island of French Polynesia, an overseas collectivity of France in the Pacific Ocean.

With a lagoon comprised of blues and greens, it was love at first sight for me many years ago, when I saw pictures of the island and savoured it on a screen saver in my home office.

The surrounding slopes are lush and tropical and the valleys blossom with hibiscus.  The perfect white sand is what I’m most looking forward to – and the colourful fish that surround the island (including sharks and giant manta rays).

I will be staying in an over water bungalow with a thatched roof – a true dream come true for me. That’s why it’s a top 40 Under 40 goal that I’m going to relish for years to come.

My ultimate paradise awaits…………
