A retired couple Chris and Frances Thacker from England and Scotland admire the shores of Samoa as well as the culture and the food.
Dear Tourist caught up with them they were enjoying the sun near the Samoa Tourism Authority and learning about the Samoa tatau from Master Tattooist, Suluape.
“This is our first time here in Samoa and it has been a great experience,” said Mr. Thacker.
“We sailed here and first we went through Tahiti and the Cook Islands and now we are here.”
“It has been a week since we’ve been here and we are thinking of spending two to three more weeks here.”
“What we saw today of the traditional tattoo, it looks painful but we can see how much the people of Samoa have so much pride in getting it.”
“The people are so lovely and friendly and also the police officers, they are very helpful and we are loving every part of this trip.”
Mrs. Thacker also said that Samoa is a place to relax and enjoy the breeze.
“The weather is different from home but it’s good to experience different weathers of different countries,” she said.
“We live on our boat but we want to experience more activities like today when we saw how the prints were made. Its amazing the people take so much pride in what they do.”
“We will definitely recommend Samoa to our friends and families and hopefully we will get to come back here one day.”
