Samoa - November 2012
I was lucky enough to go on a Famil trip to Samoa for a week to check out the local sights. My favourite spot that everyone must visit is the To Sua Trench which is a big salt water swimming hole connected to the ocean. Access to this is via a long ladder leading down to the water. Not for the faint of heart! Swimming with and feeding the Turtles on Savaii was also a major highlight and something I highly recommend doing. Samoa is a great place to hire a rental car and explore, or sit back, relax and swim. Their local Fiafia nights put on at the resorts are also pretty fun – just avoid sitting in the front row if you don’t want to be pulled up on stage!
The cultural village in Apia was also really interesting where we saw a traditional tattoo being done, learnt 101 uses of one coconut and watched some fire dancing just to name a few of the things on offer.
