Couple keen to find out more about Samoan way of life

The greatest part of any memorable adventure is spending it with family.

And when you’re in Samoa with your loved ones, a cold niu at hand is the best way to celebrate and cherish those moments.

That’s what Sairah Walsh, Dylan Vernon and their one-and-half-year-old son, Eli, were doing. 

The family has come to love the niu (green coconut) since they arrived.

But it’s just the start.

The family from Auckland, New Zealand, look forward to what Samoa has got to offer.

While the family was admiring the scenery around the Samoa Tourism Authority, Dear Tourist learned they came to know of Samoa through their friends back at home. 

The couple said the Samoan people were very friendly just like their friends back home.

They took this as a good opportunity not just to relax but to find out more about Samoans.

“It is our first time here in Samoa and it is good to be here, just to have an understanding of different cultures because we have been to Rarotonga as well,” they said. 

The family is at the Sheraton Samoa Aggie Grey’s Hotel for the next couple of days.

The only issue they have is the heat.

Still, Sairah and Dylan, are very keen to explore and find out more about the Samoan way of life.
