Well, I never made it to Tahiti but I did get as far as Tonga and Fiji.  To achieve this, I joined the Peace Corps.

It wasn't as dramatic and adventurous as joinign the French Foreign Legion, but I did get to the South Pacific, to Samoa and Western Samoa, then on to Tonga where I served as PCV (Peace Corps Volunteer) teaching English in the Tongan school system.

It was there I met King Topou and shook his hand which was as large as a catcher's glove.

Remember, where there is a will, there is a way.  I will never forget the spectacular Ploynesian sunsets.                        (V.C)
