Last stop

A travel blog entry by rmlkent


Our adventure is coming to an end. We had 5 days in Rarotonga, then it's off to Canada and HOME!!!
Rarotonga is an island, 32km in diameter (no marathons here Jod!) and has 2 roads, inner and outer, and a beautiful lagoon all the way around.
Although we arrived in a little bit of rain, the locals were especially happy -hadn't rained in …

Rain on the parade...

A travel blog entry by mattadore

Our last day in Raro! We woke up nice and early to say goodbye to the rest of Jodi's family as they were flying out on the 8.15am flight. Then we went back to bed. We eventually got up and had coffee with Rachel, Anna and Josh. I then scootered over to Jocelyn and Chris's place to check if they could come pick our gear up when we checked out. When I got back we packed our gear and then me and Rachel went and dropped the scooters off. We ...

So I went down to the beach, did my business, and then went for a bit of a walk. The wind was howling by now and the sand stung as it whipped my legs. I walked along the road for a bit instead. I went back to bed and fell asleep sometime after 6am for maybe another hour. Not an ideal start to ...

Time to get organised

A travel blog entry by mattadore

The weather wasn't nearly as flash as the day before when we woke up. It was windy and threatening to rain. We had breakfast in our villa and Jodi spent a bit more time writing her speech. I had a list of things I needed to buy for the wedding, in particular for the cocktails that Nicola was in charge of. So while the bridal party went to their dress fitting, Russell and I jumped in the car and drove into the main town. We went to the supermarket ...
