... 5:00pm and my connecting flight to Melbourne just an hour later, so I couldn't really afford for it to be delayed. And of course it was delayed, I actually arrived in Auckland just before 5:20pm so had to to leg it. Fortunately my ongoing flight to Melbourne was also delayed slightly so I needn't have panicked. Actually, I was quite cool about it all, I'm on holiday, it's completely out of my hands, so there really is little point in worrying about it; I'm ...
... him out guiding again, in the future on some random surf trip, to some remote location.
Oh and we also now have the addition of Westy to the resort who was there to help the owner set up his new fishing boat. This guy was a total character and had us in stitches with his "I don't give a f---" attitude, mediocre jokes and experiences that are best left to the imagination. This guy is a hardcore Marlin fisherman and his fishing tales that sounded like ...
The last two days have flown by quickly. We have spent our days exploring the island and in the evenings the kids have disappeared into the village or the water with a group of local children. It is early Saturday morning here so it is a good time to write without distraction.
On Thursday we started off by heading off to visit the blowholes which were a 20 minute drive from Satuaitua. We were the first car there and Leilani the grandma who was working there squished ...
Today we left the main island of Upolu to visit the island of Savai'i. We will be staying here on the beach for 5 nights. We have rented a fale that is over the water. It is a beautiful spot! The water is turquoise and the coral starts about 30 feet off the beach ...

Local knowledge of spots is really the only way you are going to find any waves. The girls had to leave and Jean Paul wanted to spend some time at these other fale's so they dropped me off at this small surf camp in Aganoa. Traveling around with that group was a lot of fun. Great people that I feel very fortunate I got to ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsJet Over Hotel Salelologa
This hotel has been primarily used by local businssmen but is turning self into a resort. There are three types of room. the top range has hot water heated by solar power. The standard room has only cold water, but in this climate this is hardly a hardship. In the well tended garden are fales with just a double bed. You have to go through the garden for the shower and toilet. The staff are fantastically friendly and attentive and the swimming pool is basic but very functional. Kyak hire at 10 talle per day (£3) is great.
