Wanna Go Wednesday is here and this week, with winter finally upon us, we’re dreaming of South Pacific adventure!

I’ve flown over the South Pacific on the way to the US but I’ve never been to any of its exotic locations. A South Pacific cruise is definitely in my future, especially as I’ve been soaking up the photos from friends and family who have either cruised or flown in search of their own island adventure.

In no particular order, I long to visit Fiji, Tahiti, Vanuatu, Samoa, New Caledonia, Tonga, Hawaii and Easter Island. I want to throw myself into the clear waters, soak up some sun and learn more about the cultures of Polynesia, Micronesia and Melanesia.

I think you can tell I’m pretty desperate to enjoy a South Pacific adventure of my own!

#WannaGoWednesday is when we share a little visual inspiration for the places we’re dreaming of visiting. Check out more awesome images over at our Pinterest page!

Here is some inspiration for all of us as we shiver our way through a long, dark winter…I WILL have a South Pacific adventure of my own one day!
