Bora Bora

Bora Bora in the Leeward Islands of French Polynesia

Island of Bora Bora, French Polynesia

French Polynesia is a sort of geographic nesting doll of islands in the South Pacific Ocean. Bora Bora is one of the Leeward Islands, a part of the larger Society Islands group, which is included in the still larger collection of islands and reefs that make up French Polynesia. Like Tahiti, Bora Bora thrives on tourism. There are but 11 square miles to this island group, but oh what fantastic square miles they are. And for as many shades of green you can find here on land, there may be more shades of blue in the reef-sheltered lagoons surrounding Bora Bora.

The Hungry Tree 


The Hungry Tree is a tree in the grounds of the King’s Inns in DublinRepublic of Ireland. An otherwise unremarkable specimen of the London Plane, it has become known for having partially encapsulated a nearby park bench. It has become a tourist attraction and is frequently photographed. The Hungry Tree was the subject of a campaign by Green Party politician Ciarán Cuffe to ensure its preservation.


The tree lies just inside the south gate of the grounds of the King’s Inns (the Irish inn of court) on Constitution Hill in Dublin.[1][2][3]It is a London Plane (Platanus x hispanica) of the type widely planted in Dublin in the 19th century.[2][4][5] It has been estimated to be between 80 and 120 years old.[6][2] The tree, described as an unremarkable specimen “mediocre in appearance”, is 21 metres (69 ft) in height and 3.47 metres (11.4 ft) in girth.[6][5]

The tree was planted adjacent to a cast iron bench dating from the early 1800s.[4][6] Over decades the tree has grown to encompass the bench.[4] The tree is said to be “eating” the bench, which is how its name originated.[1] The grounds of King’s Inns are open to the public between 7 a.m. and 7.30 p.m. every day and the tree has become something of a tourist attraction.[1][6] It is much photographed and has appeared on the cover of the tourist guidebook Secret Dublin – an unusual guide and in artist Robert Ballagh‘s 1981 book Dublin.[6][2]
