Greetings! How are you all? I just wanted to apologise for my lack of posts.... sometimes I guess life just gets in the way of all the things we wished we could be doing. So I have been back from Samoa for more than 2 weeks now and I have finally come off that cloud....post holiday blues are the worst! I spent the first week trying to regulate my body's sleep pattern and appetite whilst adjusting to being without my travel buddies, the warm south pacific air and free days of deciding where to go, what to wear and what to eat (I miss the fresh fruit in the islands).
Samoa was such a beautiful place. In case you missed the update, I went over for my friends wedding. I assisted in the hair and makeup prep for the day. I enjoyed being the tourist driving all over the island with my girls (we hadn't seen each other for about 2 years)....it was an endless bundle of laughs....we teased each other, teased ourselves and had a cocktail/coconut bonanza!!
A few highlights included watching "The Orator" in Samoa. It is such a strong film and if it is showing (I know it is limited release in Australia) you should definitely go and see it. Also sliding down the rock waterfalls was the bomb! So I was totally scared but I made myself do it and it was THE BEST!!! I will see if I can post the video up!
Other than that I won't rave on....I'll load the pics and daydream about my next trip away.
Next post will be the wedding pics. I don't want to say stay tuned because both times I have said it....I haven't updated on it :/ also I can finally breath a sigh of relief on something that had bugged me for a while. So I said I would send something to one of my readers as a pay it forward thing since Amrah so kindly sent me stuff...and I have been meaning to do it.....WELL FINALLY......I sent that little package today so keep an eye out Sara. I'm so sorry it has been well over a month since I promised you I would. I hope you like the stuff.
Also shout out to my new followers. So delighted you saw something of interest in my blog...and Kiah I'm not Samoan. My father is Australian and my mother is Niuean (another small South Pacific island) but I mix with a lot of Polynesian people and I love how similar yet diverse each polynesian culture is. P.S. Don't forget to see The Orator if it is showing near you.
