Ocean loving Aussie says Samoa a great place

Belinda Macdonald from Sydney, Australia, is in love with the ocean. 

And being in Samoa where it is literally surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, she says there is something fantastic about Samoa’s ocean temperature and environment that has captured her heart.

This is her first trip to our island and so far so good for the 50-year-old. 

Mrs. Macdonald and her partner were waiting for a taxi at the Tanoa Tusitala Hotel yesterday to head to Palolo Deep when Dear Tourist team met them. 

We learned from the couple that they had arrived on the 31st of last month and they will depart our shores on Monday. 

It was also interesting to hear about her stories about the ocean and her passion for scuba diving, which is the main reason they chose our country in the first place. 

“Since we arrived, we’ve enjoyed our stay so much, the Samoan people are so friendly and the place is so quiet. It was very relaxing,” she said. 

“We have been in and out of many resorts here on the island and the hospitality of people working within those resorts is so amazing.

“I still haven’t had any chance to taste Samoan food, but I am hoping for our last three days here, I will be able to taste local food.”

Despite the hot weather, Mrs. Macdonald and her partner still believes that Samoa is the best country for vacation. 

And with their experience so far, it is for certain that Samoa will see their faces again.
