Rangiroa Diving & Travel Guide

  I always dreamed of travelling the South Pacific and last year Enrico and I got that chance, travelling to 3 countries over 2 months. We visited 6 islands in French Polynesia, and if I had to choose a favourite, I think it would be Rangiroa. It’s such a magical place. Not only is there…
