Palm fringed beaches of Samoa. I'm a little obsessed with the South Pacific Islands. ? ? Growing up in New Zealand I guess we are already a part of that – an Island in the South Pacific. A little bigger, a little less tropical. ? ? When I first visited the other islands of the South Pacific it blew my mind! So beautiful, so welcoming, so much amazing culture, language, myth, and story. ? ? Thanks to the film Moana the world caught on to the magnificence of the Pacific island nations.? ? Here's a beautiful sandy spot I used to lay and read my book back when I was a flight attendant operating Virgin Samoa flights and spent up to a couple of nights a week here in Apia, Samoa.? ? Absolute paradise!
