Travel Blogs from Aitutaki

Atiu Mission, Island Arere Ra, Raro Meltdown

A travel blog entry by roger_ramjet


... Arae Ra. Mr Henrys' Villa was just right for us, cheaper and more secluded than a resort, we can cook food to our own liking, well equipped and came complete with pool.
We decide as we fly back out over the magnificent motu and coral reef that the best view of Aitutaki lagoon is definitely by air, it simply can’t be fully appreciated at water level. Though despite it’s stunning visual appeal, it’s not like Samoa for snorkelling or as magnificent as our own ...

More Island, More Rain, Less is More

A travel blog entry by roger_ramjet


... I can understand they want to keep the riff raff out (which is indeed us) and good for them. It’s one of those well kept beach-raked overly tidy and stiff looking resorts, all very manicured and unnatural. We almost booked an accommodation deal here, I’m soo glad we didn’t.

We exit the most uninviting islet we have found yet. The ferry driver empasthises with our dismay and invites us to the golf club for afternoon drinks. As if we havent ...

Small island, small fish, small talk

... I'm not sure what everyone has been raving about. This smaller island doesn't seem to be any more beautiful than the one we left. Oh well, it's warm ... very warm, so I can't complain.

We wrap the evening off with a bar-b-que and some terrible Casio played tunes at a local hotel beach bar. It's all about honeymooners and weddings on this island ... so I suppose the Casio slow numbers are what they are after ... being silly we decide to join in and dance!


Paradise is an unavoidable word

A travel blog entry by sharn_parm


... managed to lose his ring in the process of it all.

Amongst all the snorkeling, the staff were preparing the buffet lunch. Here we had a range of food to choose from; delicious barbecued tuna steaks, Manitoa (which are like potatoes), Kumara(sweet potatoes) taro root (vegetable), kuru (breadfruit) , salad, paw paw (fruit) beetroot, fried banana and star fruit. At this point, everyone was hungry but lucky for me, ladies got to indulge first. Their cooking seems ...
