A couple of months ago I wrote a story about the little paradise of Rarotonga for Escape.com.au. We had a stupendously relaxing time on the tropical south Pacific island, so much so that I could have kept writing about it for days… But you know, the sensible editorial folk at Escape will only allow a writer to throw so many words at them! In my case such restrictions are a good thing as I don’t mind a good chat….
However I’ll zip my noise-maker for now and simply post some of my happy snaps in hope it helps give some idea of how beautiful the island is. Sadly the fragrant breeze is not detectable in the images nor is the incredible laid back energy. We only wish we’d Raro’d longer.
You’ll have to visit Escape to read the story but think of these as an additional visual aid!
Thanks again to Aunty Nane and the Cook Islands Tourism folk for inviting me and looking after us so well and to Air New Zealand for flying us over. Thanks to the Nautilus Resort and Little Polynesian Resort – both gorgeous, right on the beach, good food – had a fantastic dinner at Nautilus and a beautiful brekkie at Little Poly and wish we’d been able to sample more of the menu! We’ll be back for sure!
