The charm of Samoa continues to make the island a favourite destination for Australian couple Chris and Sue Tilt — they just keep on coming back.

In fact the Sydney couple recently returned to Samoa for their eighth visit and are so happy to be back.

Speaking to the Samoa Observer, the couple said they are also here to visit a friend who works here.   

“We have a friend who lives here in Samoa and he is working in the bank so we come and visit him and he takes us around to all the different places.”

Visiting Samoa at this time of the year has its challenges with the wet weather a noticeable feature, not forgetting the mosquitoes which can be a nuisance. But the couple is taking everything in their stride and enjoying their first day back on the island since their last visit.  

Currently, Chris and Sue call the Taumeasina Island Resort “home” and are thankful for the hospitality and the focus that the resort staff are giving them. 

They return to Sydney next Thursday so with five days to discover more of the island, they intend to make the best of their adventure. 

Discussing their interaction with Samoans during their stay on the island, the couple described the locals as very kind and hospitable people.

And with the New Year just around the corner, the plans for the next holiday destination in 2019 has begun, with Chris and Sue indicating that there is a chance they could be back again next year.
