Samoa - the inaugural journey
About this blog
Ian and I had been hoping to make a trip to Samoa this year to visit his brother, who's working over there for the Samoan Tourist Authority as an AusAid youth ambassador.
Ian had two weeks off when he changed jobs, which happened to coincide with the launch of Polynesian Blue - a new airline flying from Sydney to Samoa. I wasn't so lucky - I had a conference smack bang in the middle of Ian's planned trip.
But I'd never been to the South Pacific before, and an island holiday guided by not only Ian's brother but also a local tourism expert was too good to pass up.
So, I set a new personal record for short overseas holidays.
It was well worth it.
