Island landing

On the plane

With this we open our “Diary” blog. We keep you updated on a daily basis, on what we do and what we experience on our journey….

And the journey starts with the flight from Munich to the Cook Islands:


Day -1  (March 30) Airport Munich – Emirates Check-In Counter

….and the following conversation:

Peanie: Mmh – is it possible to check in our luggage from Munich directly to Rarotonga?

Check-in assistent (Marie): Where is Rarotonga?

Peanie: Main island of the Cook Islands, about 3 flight hours east of New Zealand.

Marie: Does it belong to NZ? If not, then it is an international connection flight and we can check it through.

Peanie: It is an independant country.

Marie: Really, I have no clue where and what it is. I haven’t heard about it so far. I’ll ask my colleage, he travels a lot and knows so many countries. PHILIPP…

Peanie: Mmmhh – if it is too complicated we can pick up the luggage in Auckland and check it in again.

Marie: No no, I think it works, we just need to find out how.

Philipp arrives.

Marie: Philipp, do you know the Cook Islands?

Philipp: Yes…

Philipp takes over, supported by Marie, but also needs support from another colleague – Jan.

Philipp: JAN, I need luggage transfer fom NZ to Rarotonga. Rarotonga – you do not know where it is? Pretty close to Bora Bora… You know, where I spent my honeymoon.

Philipp to Peanie: How long do you travel?

Peanie: 10 weeks, but also to Vanuatu and Fiji.

Philipp: Vanu… what? Does this belong to the Cook Islands?

Peanie: No, this is another Island state east of Australia…

….meanwhile 3 Emirates employees worked on our check in – and about 30 minutes later they managed it succesfully with transaction „TNZ“ (transit in NZ), which was never used before by them…

During this complete process we chatted about the journey in a very chilled atmosphere (luckily no qeue at the counter…) and finally Marie said: by the way, I can offer you an upgrade…  🙂


Day 0  (March 31) – Virgin Airlines flight from Auckland to Rarotonga

We were sitting in the aeroplane, with nearly one hour delay.

Announcement from the captain: Dear guests, here is the captain speaking. I apologize for the delay, but we are still waiting for some luggage from Europe.

Pietro to Peanie: Could be our luggage, on its complicated journey…

Remark: finally (and luckily!) at Rarotonga Airport our complete luggage arrived 🙂


Sunny island greetings,

Eltje & Pietro

Hi all and thank you for visiting PeanieSutra.com.

Yes, we doing it!

Eltje and I have embarked on a journey to find peace and tranquillity, not just within but around us too.

We have pulled the plug on the corporate world and living in the overly busy western world. We are heading for the South Pacific to find the perfect place to live the lifestyle we want.

We have had the good fortune of being able to travel much and discover different parts of the world and we have both lost our hearts to the South Pacific. At this time, we have an idea where and how we would like to settle in the South Pacific, but this is still a work in progress.

And it is our working concept that we would like to share with you on this site.

We will share our previous travel experiences and keep you posted on how our plans are taking shape and being transforms into reality.

So, we invite you to follow us on our journey to PeanieSutra.
