People, culture and Vailima, and not necessarily in that order is how the Profitt and O’Neil family describe their holiday in Samoa.

Here for six days now Mr. O’Neil said some of his kids have been here a couple of times before but for one daughter, this is her first time here.

“So she is enjoying every bit of Samoa,” he said.

“The people are just absolutely friendly and we hardly get that back home so it’s great and my children are experiencing a different lifestyle here in Samoa.

“The culture is different from what we are used to in Australia as life is very fast there with technology used to communicate and that’s how it is there.

“But in Samoa, this is where we learn that the little things in life are the most important things that really matter.

“Like a simple smile can actually brighten up your day and that’s how it is here in Samoa.

“Samoan people value their culture and tradition and that is something nobody can ever take away from them.

“They have so much pride in it and you can see that at the same time they are enjoying themselves and that’s what makes Samoa very unique.”

One of Mr. O’Neil’s sons said that his favorite thing in Samoa is Vailima.

“It is the best local beer I have ever tasted,” he said.

“We all love it and it’s different from what we usually have back home so we will definitely recommend Samoa to our friends when we return.

“We will also be coming back to enjoy the Vailima, people and the culture.”
