Ian's journey starts in Tahiti, where he starts off by judging the Mr. Tahiti contest. From there he visits the Gaugain museum. He then heads out to the neighboring island of Moorea, where he witnesses a wedding special: Tahitian style weddings for westerners.
His island hopping continues on to Bora Bora, where he goes for an underwater reef walk, wearing a huge aqua helmet. On Bora Bora he meets with "the Shark Man", who takes him out to meet some sharks and manta rays.
Continuing on, Ian flies to Western Samoa. While there he stays in a traditional village, where he goes fishing, meets the tattoo artist, and partakes of a huge feast and dance.
His final island destination are the Marquesas, where Ian treks through some mountains to join villagers in a traditional wild boar hunt. The end of his journey culminates back in Tahiti for the Heiva festival, which includes canoe racing, fire walking, dancing…a perfect end to a trip in paradise.
