Savai’i leaves first time visitor in awe

Life is good in Samoa for Ashley Richardson.

Ashley was reading a book by the Taumeasina Island Resort poolside and just soaking in the sun when the Dear Tourist met her. 

It’s her first time in Samoa.     

After spending five days in Samoa, and doing two tours around the islands, Ashley promised that she will be back again.

But first she has got to make some money when she returns home today.   

She is originally from New Zealand and she travelled to Samoa with a friend.   

As a first timer, she has become one of Samoa’s biggest fans, with tours around Savaii and Upolu leaving her in awe.  

Speaking to the Dear Tourist team, she shares that it was a mind blowing experience and they have created many fun memories here in Samoa.

Samoa has left them wanting more. Ashley says they went to Savaii and they loved it.

From swimming with the turtles, the beaches, different historical sites, and the Samoan people, all a relaxing experience for her. 

She said the simple way of life portrayed by almost every Samoan she has met is an experience she will take with her home. 

“It’s nothing like New Zealand and I love that,” she said. 

Ms. Richardson got a slice of heaven with the beauty of Samoa.
