Weaving, learning and enjoying what Samoa offers

When you are in Samoa, do what the Samoans do.

For Laura Jarvis and Theo Harbers, they have been learning as much as they can about Samoa during their time here.

The young couple from Christchurch New Zealand was in Samoa for Mr. Harber’s sister’s wedding. 

But they have made the most of the trip, enjoying time with friends and families and learning Samoan things. Like weaving.

 “We’ve learnt how to make the hats out of leaves and it was awesome.”

They have also done what tourists do in Samoa – checking out all the sites and enjoying the beautiful surrounding.

Top of the list have been the pristine beaches, ranging from Lalomanu.

They have checked out the breathtaking To Sua Trench as well as the local markets. 

The couple and their families are also planning to visit the big island of Savaii today.

Speaking to Dear Tourist, Mr. Harbers said his sister married a Samoan so he was looking forward to expanding his knowledge of Samoa and what else he could learn while here. 

Would they come back?

They both said yes. Besides, they now have family connections here.
