A group of students from Bryant University in the United States of America are sold on Samoa and have promised to return.

The first time visitors were impressed so much by Samoa’s environment and people they are taking with them many wonderful memories they will share with families and friends.

Sara Lewis, Emily Carol, Michael Weller and Collin Denney are working for a hospital in American Samoa. They popped over to Samoa for a brief visit.

Compared to American Samoa, Ms. Lewis said Samoa has a lot more to offer in terms of tourism sites and attractions.

 “Compared to the roads in American Samoa, it’s very beautiful here,” she said. “I mean all of the roads are well maintained and lots of beautiful flowers and friends, I just love it here.”

Ms. Lewis was also impressed by the number of church buildings in Samoa. It’s one of the things she will always remember.

“Back in the U.S, we do have churches but not that much as you see here in the islands and it’s just so refreshing and beautiful,” she said.

Ms. Lewis is Catholic.

She explained that it’s a new experience for her to have seen such enormous Catholic Churches in Samoa.

“Back at home, we only have those smaller branches and seeing these much bigger Catholic churches is so beautiful and amazing,” she said.

The four tourists were very interested in sharing how they love eating food from the umu.

“We’ve had a couple of umus here at Taufua Fales and one from American Samoa and it’s pretty awesome,” Mr. Denney said.

Ms. Carrol with excitement told the Samoa Observer of how much she loved the Samoan taro after having lots of it at Taufua Beach Fale where they stayed.

The tourists are returning home but they promise to be back.
