First impressions

View

Hi all, we are back with the impressions of our first days on the island. Enjoy the pictures & movie…

 

Day 1  (April 1) –  Rarotonga Muri – Get ourselves up and running

Our first place to stay is a holiday apartment, in Muri, a village in the south east of Raro.

After dealing successfully with the jetlag of our 36h-trip in the morning (believe it or not: mainly with Italian coffee and French croissant 🙂 in the cafe around the corner), we organized ourselves. Rented a scooter, drove to town to the supermarket, found Internet access voucher and local SIM-card (communication with home is a challenge because no roaming service with European providers is available), and finally made our way back to our apartment.

In the afternoon we went on a stroll down to the beach 🙂 – click here to have a look at our movie on Youtube:

After a good meal (with the biggest mango we ever ate) we went to bed again (jetleg, part 2…).

Day 2 (April 2) – First impressions  

For the first 10 days of our journey we choose to stay in the holiday apartment complex we are interested to buy. After all our theoretical research about this location we were sooo curious to see it in reality. And the first impression was really good. A great place on a hillside of Muri village, in a tropical garden, directly in front of a topical rainforrest. Beautiful colored flowers, coconut palms, papaya, banana and avocado trees beside the house and a cool sea view.

And very important for Peanie: out of reach for Tsunamis!

 

We will be back soon again,

Sunny regards from Raro,

Eltje & Pietro (Peanie & Sweetie)
