The Obamas' Easter Vacation Squad Reportedly Includes Some Of The Most Famous Celebs
As part of their post-presidency tour around the world, the Obamas are reportedly spending their Easter vacation with a few of the world's most famous celebrities. A Tahitian news outlet reported that the former First Couple is living the dream in French Polynesia with none other than Oprah, Tom Hanks, and Bruce Springsteen. The group is reportedly spending their Easter on Oracle CEO Larry Ellison's super yacht, and is probably having the most interesting conversations that have ever occurred in the history of the world.
Obama is reportedly using this excursion as a chance to take a break from writing his White House memoirs at the Brando, a luxury eco-resort where rooms can cost upwards of $7,000 per night this time of year (good thing the book deal will net the family an estimated $65 million). Obama has reportedly been staying there for the last three weeks, while former First Lady Michelle Obama just flew to meet him there last weekend.
Before embarking on their yachting expedition, Michelle was photographed catching some waves while paddle boarding. According to Travel and Leisure, the Obamas' squad has made several stops at some of the stunning spots around the South Pacific, including Vanilla Island and Bora Bora, but will soon head back to the Brando so Obama can finish up his book.
Since Barack Obama's presidency ended on Jan. 20, he and Michelle have spent much of their time island hopping through some of the world's most beautiful destinations. Billionaire entrepreneur Richard Branson hosted the Obamas for three weeks at his private island in the British Virgin Islands, and the former president even learned to kitesurf as part of a friendly bet between himself and Branson.
They returned to the United States for a brief stint when they moved into a new, non-white house in Washington, D.C. Obama also thrilled onlookers when he made an appearance in New York City last month. You could probably never really get enough of the island life, but presumably at some point, Obama will return to the U.S. for more than just a couple of weeks at a time.
It's unclear if Obama daughters Sasha and Malia are with their parents in the Pacific paradise, since both girls have had busy lives after the White House as well. Older sister Malia is currently interning with Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein in New York, and Sasha is still in high school at the prestigious Sidwell Friends School in Washington. High achievers as ever, the family's full schedules might have kept them apart for the holiday, but at least the 'rents seem to be having a great time.
