Georgie having fantastic time during trip with friends

It’s always a dream for friends to travel together.

And when the destination is a beautiful Pacific island paradise, it will no doubt go down as one of the best memories ever. 

Which is exactly the case for Georgie, 18, who says that being with her friends in Samoa has been a blast. The trip is all about relaxing and having fun. 

She is from Victoria, Australia and is in the country to celebrate her graduation with her friends. 

Dear Tourist met Georgie when she was brushing through the Vaitele flea market yesterday. 

She arrived into the country on Sunday night and will be here for 10 days. 

Just into her fourth day, Georgie says she already loves the Samoan culture and tradition. 

“I love the singing and dancing, I see that the Samoans value their culture a lot and I respect that,” she said. 

“And it is very different with the Australian culture. Back at home it is more modern whereas over here, it is more relaxing.” 

Georgie and her friends live at the Insel Fehmarn Hotel and they’re also visiting local schools.

 “So when we went to the schools they always performed for us. We went to a youth group and they also performed for us.

“I loved it. Something that they naturally do really well because we don’t get much of that over in Australia,” she added. 

Georgie also looks forward to touring Samoa and just appreciating the scenery that our island nation has to offer. 

“We went snorkelling at Palolo Deep and we visited all the markets, we visited the school of hope (Samoa Victim Support) then we went to Faatuatua,” she said.

“I also look forward to hanging at the beach. We are going to beach fales at Lalomanu so that should be fun.”

Georgie added she would love to experience more about our culture until she leaves our shores.
