A holiday out of the fast lane

Samoa is the perfect place away from home because not all of us were made for the fast lane.

Atam and Gina believe that Samoa is running at the right pace which is what some of them are searching for, to relax and refresh.

“It is nice to take a break from the internet because not all of us who go on a holiday want to work. We just want to take a break from the outside world,” they said.

They agreed that Samoa is the place that many people are looking for to relax in because there is so much happening in their everyday lives that you can get lost in the process of it all.

It is always good to take a break every now and then and it is even better when you are at the right place for Atam and Gina.

Going to sleep early has definitely been something new for them.

They said that everybody here in Samoa goes to bed early. 

They have also noticed that there are barely any cocktail bars as well.

The couple is from Great Britain and they will only be here in Samoa for a week staying at the Saletoga Sands Beach Resort.

The scenery they said, is dramatic

They just marvel at how beautiful Samoa is. 

Previous experiences of travelling to the Pacific  have been visits to the Cook Islands.

“There is a big difference from Samoa,” said Atam.

“Samoa is way bigger than the Cook Islands. It is nice and different here. It is very warm here and there are more open houses.”

Atam and Gina wish that there could be more direct flights to Samoa because on their way to Samoa they have had to go through Fiji and the flight was delayed. 

In terms of cuisine here in Samoa they both said that there should be more local food available such as seafood.
