Paul Gauguin's Girls in Bora Bora

If Gauguin were in Tahiti today he would hang around Bora Bora to paint 9 beautiful girls called Les Gauguines.
They are Regent's Paul Gauguin troupe of live-aboard dancers, singers, poets, pareo-tying teachers and dreamy beauties.
"How many times can I fall in love?" asks the Compulsive Traveler.
"as many times as there are Gaguines on board" answers his inner voice.

To French Polynesia, the fabled islands that caught the imagination and the heart of Melville, Paul Gauguin and now The Compulsive Traveler. Of course being pampered on the super-luxurious m/s Paul Gauguin opens the door to romance…. He follow s his heart to Oaxaca, Mexico where his New York friends Marissa and Emmanuel are to be married 3 ways: in a Zapotec, Miztec and Spanish ceremony. Talk about opening up exotic romantic possibilities. And the wedding guests get a taste of the ancient and fascinating Oaxaca culture. In order to find a date, he flies across the International Date Line all the way to exotic Fiji. Love must be somewhere in one of these 320 beautiful islands. And drinking plenty of kava with the locals makes all the girls look like stars. Grenada in the Caribbean is the spice island and the home of all the great aphrodisiacs from nutmeg to cinnamon to chocolate. So a stop there is a must to investigate among others the connection between girls and chocolate. Being dropped by helicopter on a glacier in the Canadian Rockies for a trek is not usually associated with romance. And yet the opportunity is always there as the story demonstrates. Hosted and narrated by Roberto Mitrotti less

Grenada is made up of three different islands, Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. Some of the Caribbean’s most gorgeous islands. You can grow practically anything in this fertile soil. For instance Sugar which was used for making rum to be shipped up to the cold north. But of course it’s the spices that put Grenada on the map. The French and British waged war in the 17th and 18th century over who controlled the island and it’s rich crops.., Ft. George, in the capital city was built by the Brits to protect their interests. But what do spices have to do with Romance you ask? A good question. Many of the spices grown here are valued for their aphrodisiac qualities. Take the odd- looking nutmeg. Scratch the surface of any nutmeg and there beats the heart of a mighty aphrodisiac. Excuse me if I seem a little nuts about nutmeg ... But The Compulsive Traveler is also a little obsessive. At Douglaston Spice Estate.... you can pick your own aphrodisiac. Here’s a wonderful combination. Nutmeg and beautiful girls. But what about... Cinnamon or Chocolate? Another celebrated aphrodisiac. Also grown here in Grenada. At the Belmont Estate you see the century-old way chocolate or cocoa beans were prepared for market...by dancing on them in huge copper pots. And this is the way the Big Drum dance, a traditional African Dance was kept alive over the centuries and is still reenacted today. Mix this with the local spices and you get an intoxicating dose of tropical sensuality. From the delicious fresh grilled lobster... To the heady fragrance of the flowers the island pleasures greet you everywhere Here on Carriacou, you see the direct link between spices, sensuality, romance, love and... you guessed it.... marriage. What could be a more perfect place for a wedding? The best part is you don’t have to go anywhere for your honeymoon. It’s all right here. A word of caution: don’t come to Grenada unless you’re prepared to have your passions ignited. (And go easy on the nutmeg.) less
