I went to Bora-Bora in March with [girlfriend] Bianca [Kajlich]. Bianca said it was the only place that we could possibly go. The climate was perfect: as much sun as we could get. We didn't do much. I just wanted to sit out on the deck, wade around in the water, maybe go kayaking or snorkel. [In] the over-water bungalows you see ocean life beneath you. It's like watching National Geographic beneath your floor. We stayed at the Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort. The hotel is very modern, but they keep the Polynesian feel. In town it's very old-school, not touristy. It's their life, their world, and you become a part of it.

Discovery: There's a restaurant on the main island called Bloody Mary's. You leave your sandals at the door. It's all sand throughout the restaurant. They have every kind of fish you can imagine.
