Cook Islands: Arrival by ukelele

Posted by daveb on May 28th, 2009

“Dis is my island in di sun”, strummed the straw-hatted, hibiscus-print shirt-wearing welcome wagon singer on his ukelele in the arrivals hall in Rarotonga, the Cook Islands. (Where? Once clicked, keep on zooming-out to find out!)

We didn’t quite get the flower-garland treatment that some of our other aeroplane buddies did; we had opted to stay in the cheapest accommodation on the island and so would receive the “no frills” package, both literally and figuratively.

Rarotonga in the Cook Islands is the busiest of the fifteen islands and we had deliberately chosen it as our week-long home, rather than place ourselves on a even more stunningly beautiful, but much more deserted, outlying Pacific island. We’re kind of done with the wilderness thing in the short term and I need to be able to get a cappuccino at a snap of my proverbial fingers!

We’ve not had time to have a good look around the island, but initial impressions are great. I’ll leave you with some photos to drool over…

“Waiter! Bring me coffee already!”

Hiya guys,
I am drooling but also getting excited as Rarotonga is our planned first stop on the way to New Zealand! Looking forward to hearing more and also meeting for a drink to pick your brains and hear your stories! Nicola
