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
