Just the other week we packed up the family, boarded a plane and headed off to find some sun!
So what else is there to do than seek out a tropical island and lay on it for a week!
Rarotonga - one of the beautiful islands that make up the Cook islands - is where we headed.
The sun shone, the children swam, the souls were rejuvenated, and the cocktails flowed. What more can you ask for?
Rarotonga is stunning. Its similar to Fiji but has a 'small town' feeling. Its not as touristy as Fiji so things happen a lot slower (I mean lunch can take 1hr to make it to the table) but if you just give in to it and relax, 'island time' can be a nice change.
It's a small island - takes only 40min to drive the whole way around - and their transport system consists of 2 buses. One that travels clockwise, the other anticlockwise! Its great. It feels a little like stepping back in time with its simplicity.
We loved it. Loved it. Loved it.
That's the thing about holidays though, as soon as you get back you need to start planning the next...................
Where's one place you've loved? Where's your next holiday destination?
