    Aitutaki – The Vaka Cruise – Part One

    I usually don’t do very picture heavy posts, but I find that when it comes to going through my pictures from Aitutaki, that I just can’t seem to cull them down. As it is, i’m trying to keep posts to around 10 pictures, and then splitting them into 2 parts for those larger days. Day 4 on the island saw us go on the Vaka Cruise. This took us out on the lagoon visiting some snorkeling hot spots, and a couple of islands, finishing on One Foot Island. The trip was 6 hours, included lunch & cost $99nz, which I thought was a pretty good price. Clam! There is something just so…

    Aitutaki – Day 1 & 2

    I like flying, for some reason, it’s something I really enjoy and something I miss, so I was actually rather excited about going on my longest plane flight.

    Adventure time!

    I think it really hit me yesterday, that I’m going to be spending 2 weeks on an island in the middle of the ocean. 2 weeks, on an island, where all I can see is sea. With little internet access. Que me freaking out a little. I know i’ll be okay, when I visit my parents holiday place I have hardly any internet access. I tend to just relax, read, and nap a lot. I know i’m slightly addicted to the internet, to social media, to being connected, and I know this will probably stress me at times, but I can do it. Though, I am still going to be…
