Thanks for the wonderful article about my favorite Tuamotu Island of Rangiroa by Lisa Marlowe (Aug. 21). I have visited the island four times and plan to make another trip in November. This splendidly written article, with beautiful photos, truly conveyed that special feeling of total solitude and peace that one experiences on this magnificent atoll. I have taken the excursion to Taeoo (Blue Lagoon) and drifted through the Tiputa Pass several times and I can only say that Rangiroa prides itself for having the most superb marine life I have ever seen.

Twice a day the tide changes here on this South Seas atoll, and when it does, 8- to 12-foot-tall waves churn through Tiputa Pass, creating a thunder of clashing water, riptides and whirlpools that can kill an unwary swimmer. But the bottlenose dolphins of Rangiroa revel in it. Twice a day, the pass becomes their playground, a place to soar and dive and frolic. The dolphins' acrobatics are so well known here that crowds gather to watch.

Misconceptions about destinations continue to plague travelers who sometimes don't pay enough attention to what items they should or should not take with them, and what to expect and not expect during their travels. Enjoying the "paradises" of the world, which includes coping with both culture shock and expense shock, can be greatly enhanced by information and preparation.

Though the air is soft and the sky blue, a feeling of something primitive and passionate beats in the breeze. From far across the sea a tempest is brewing in shades of deepest gray, marking a dark pathway at the edge of the horizon. Looking out across Taeoo, known as the Blue Lagoon by Rangiroans, this impending vision gives you a slight thrill as the silence trembles with a low, thunderous rumble.

Pleasant Tahitian Holidays in Westlake Village said it will substantially increase its available airline-seat inventory to Tahiti using an Air New Zealand Boeing 767, which is being chartered by Radisson Seven Seas from Los Angeles. The new service is scheduled to begin Friday. "This new arrangement will give us the airline seats we need to meet our growing customer demand for Tahiti," said Ed Hogan, Pleasant's chairman and chief executive officer.

Gauguin could have painted the colorful picture that came into focus through the faceplate of my snorkeling mask in these aquamarine waters of the South Pacific. A coral sculpture shaped like the head of a tiki god had a golden glow. Small fish created a rainbow of colors around it.

Several airlines operating in the Pacific/Asia area offer air passes within their own countries and for nearby areas. However, check their limitations. For example, you may not be able to visit a city or destination more than once. Or you may not be able to backtrack to a destination, except for connecting flights. Indian Airlines has a pair of passes that have to be bought in the United States.
