Yes, it was absolutely gorgeous in 1979 when I visited; I hope it still is.

While I know a lot of people from Norway visit the Society Islands, I met someone who I thought was called Sven Hasselberg on Bora Bora in 1979. Any relation?

Hi, Person.

That would have quite a coincidence, but no he wouldn't be a relation. My grandfathers name was Sven Hasselberg, but he died in 1943 so I don't think it could have been him. My visit, along with my ex, in February -78 was for a week, and we went by a local passenger boat to Huahine. The ship stopped at some of the other islands, and we actually had an hours break by the wharf at Bora Bora. But yes, this was in -78, not -79. Could you have mixed up the years?

Nice to hear from you. Cheers, Jan
