Couple enjoys winter reprieve in warm Samoa

For David Hemara and his wife Clare, Samoa has been a chance to warm up.

The 55-year-old says the couple only plans to be on island for a one-week trip dedicated to relaxation. 

“We came here to escape the New Zealand winter," he said. 

Mr. Hemara works for a company that produces infant formula derived from goat's milk. 

The pair arrived last Saturday in Samoa and they are leaving the country today after sight-seeing across Upolu and generally "having a great time".

“Maybe next time we will visit the big island of Savai’i,” he said.

David and his wife say they find Samoa unique in terms of its villages, people and the weather, something they have appreciated on drives around the island. 

“The culture of Samoa that is something new and also the people are friendly,” he added. 

Mrs. Hemara said she finds church very interesting.

She could not believe how many people go to church in Samoa. 

“ I don’t think that there will be many people who attended church as you see in Samoa,” she added.
