Yep, plans are set … departing 30 March, returning 18 June … 10 whole weeks in paradise. Ten carefully balanced weeks … between work and Chill 🙂
Paradise 1: Rarotonga, Aitutaki and Akaiami – islands of The Cook Islands
The first four weeks will be spent in The Cook Islands where we will be evaluate two small resorts up for sale. We will be spending a few nights at each to fully understanding what is on offer and their future potential.
In addition – and this goes for the other locations we will be visiting too – we have a whole list of people we want to interview to gain insights about living and owning a business there. The people we plan to interview include medical doctors, accountants, tax advisors, bank managers, lawyers, estate agents (for living and business property), local business owners and people on vacation.
Then we have a week away from it all on a beautiful remote island, in the middle of the Aitutaki lagoon, called Akaiami. There a windsurfer has already been arranged for Pietro :-)))
Paradise 2: Port Villa, Tanna and Pentecost – Vanuatu
The second four weeks will be in Vanuatu with the same agenda as for The Cook Islands.
In addition we will be doing a chartered flight over the volcanic island of Ambrym and its active vulcanos to obtain aerial photographs. Did we mention that we are exploring the option of combining photograph and writing articles for travel publications. (We’ll reveal more on this in the next post)
Paradise 3: Fiji
Fiji is the third Option on our list of potential island states to live in. We will be spending 2 weeks in Fiji, and while this leg of the visit is still under construction, our main objective here is to assess the business climate and ensure we are not potentially missing an opportunity by focusing our efforts on The Cooks and Vanuatu.
Exciting times :-))
When we travel, we will keep you posted with picture from paradise and our search for Peaniesutra … the Chill haven.
Ciao for now 😉
Pietro & Eltje
