For 8 days we are staying in the very remote Cook Islands, on the island of Rarotonga. We would actually only have 7 days here but we pass the international timeline and go back a day. So we leave New Zealand on the 4th and land on the 3rd. This island is so tiny, you could spend a day and walk the entire perimeter. But even though it's tiny, it is …
November 17 - Dec 3, 2004 He Said: Highlights: 1. The Lagoon on Aitutaki, warm, calm and the most amazing Turquoise blue. Oh yeah and White Sand Beach!!! 2. The friendliness of most of the people. Aitutaki even more so than Raro. 3. The relaxing Island Pace, but in true North American fashion after a week or so, I was ready for some action and some …
By the end of the day I was saturated, wet through to my underwear. All I wanted was a hot shower and a drink!! So Paradise does have its drawbacks.
We returned to the resort and decided to stay there for dinner. When we went to the casual dining area we were joined by Alan Cherry from New Zealand, an old friend. He told us it was his 75th Birthday so we gladly shared the night with him and celebrated an important milestone!

and of course the Golden Gate Bridge. We even made it to a baseball
game which was pretty cool to experience for the first hour though
slightly boring after three hours of it; that is until the home team
started losing and things became tense and people actually sat still
for five minutes rather than repeatedly getting up for food and
drink. The best thing was the free firework display after the game to
celebrate the start of ...
... the stalls all the while being blasted by the most irritating music. I think it was Gospel something being played Don Ho style with ukelele's and bad singing. I'm sorry, but really, who likes this?! Cracks me up!

TravelPod Member ReviewsSunrise Beach Bungalows Rarotonga
I would definitely not recommend. Our 'free continential breakfast' was giving us a container of corn flakes, a loaf of bread and a couple of eggs the night before. Though we read online there was free internet, they said "the wires were cut" and if we wanted internet we had to buy it at a telecom. I was scared to set anything down because it would be invaded with little red ants. I found cockroaches in my suitcase after setting it on the floor overnight. Not to mention the owner's boyfriend was completely wasted and stumbling around on the first day of our stay. Don't stay there.
