Cats, cats, and more cats... The 'Aitutaki Community Cat Project' is a group of veterinarians, vet techs, nurses, and helpers who have been coming to Aitutaki for the last couple of years to de-sex local and feral cats on the island. To say there was a cat problem was an understatement. But, there was a… Continue reading ‘Aitutaki Community Cat Project’
Our property manager recommended Te King Lagoon Tours and he was right on the money! A door to door pick-up and delivery, towels provided, snorkel gear provided (but we carry our own), and an amazing lunch provided as well. Our Captain Tia The tour stops at four to five places on the famous Aitutaki lagoon… Continue reading Te King Lagoon Tours
The island of Roratonga is a circle…yup…round as a ball…well maybe not a ball…but pretty close. This means that the main road goes around in a circle (clockwise or anticlockwise) and so do the public buses. It is a well known fact that you can go either way most times of the day either 'on-the-hour'… Continue reading Getting a round Roratonga
Our flights from Canada to the Cook Islands were interesting (to say the least), changed three times by Air New Zealand (and they forgot to re-assign our premium seats - but that is another post - check it out), a grueling 45 hours! It would not have been quite that long if we had not… Continue reading And the next adventure begins
It seems that the time flies too fast and that we get caught up in the swiftness of the current of life and sometimes we need to just take a moment to …breathe… inhale…exhale…repeat slowly. This is a listing of what is coming to the ‘fill-in-the-blanks” section over the past year. Some of these travels… Continue reading Take up where we left off…
Ah... some one said, "parting is such sweet sorrow" ... and so it was! The last dinner with our group was at one of Dan's favorite restaurants in Bangkok Jim's Burgers and was he very happy! But, we were happy too...there was an abundance of food that was dripping with cheese, fantastic fries and a… Continue reading Last dinner with our group
Ahhh... the time we had with great people, great food and wonderful travels! But, all good things must be remembered and we have the pictures to prove it. The road back to Bangkok was long and some what arduous, miles in the bus, and crossing boarders without washrooms. We really enjoyed our time together with… Continue reading Back to Beautiful Bangkok….
The main highlight of our Cambodia Tour was our visit to Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat is an experience that you must have! It is truly incredible, beautiful and awe inspiring! Our guide filled us in on the history of this beautiful place as we strolled along the promenade toward the temple. It was truly quite… Continue reading So Many Wats
While in Siem Reap we were treated to a fantastic cultural night which included a massive buffet dinner (all the dishes I love and a few more thrown in for good measure), and a cultural show of talented dancers. We were enthralled! The monumental building was beautiful and well...monumental. We first enjoyed our dinner… Continue reading Siem Reap Cultural Night…Food and Fun (culture)
Oh my goodness, these people are talented, and brave, and awesome, and hilarious! We went to see the Phare Circus. One of the best shows I have ever seen (including the Circ du Soleil). The performers were all members of the Phare Ponleu Selpak (PPSA) or “The Brightness of the Arts”. It is a non-profit… Continue reading Take me to the circus…the Phare Circus!
