"Emma! Come! Follow me!"
You can't help but love Aitutaki.
Last time I was only touring around the water, this time I will thoroughly explore the island itself.
Already, I'm loving the no-need-to-lock-the-car, no-need-for-keys vibe.
“Nothing bad happens here.”
Though a former tour guide here did go to jail for doing something bad, that a local person may not want to share or speak about it.
After having just arrived and picked up my car to check out the main area Anytime, I already want to come back for the mangoes.
Made my 1st new friend within 5min of arriving into the centre of the Amuri village.
Daniel taught me a lot already in 2hours about the trees and flowers, and the sentiments one feels about Aitutaki when all of this land belongs to their ancestors.
He said he is going to retire here soon & stay here
He is sick of working for someone else.
It's so important to feel your own land.
It's not something you feel in other countries.
I told him, you really feel the 'tawai' here.
That's why it feels so good to come back.
I just checked the lagoon again, drove around the whole island and to the top of the hill for the 1st time. The water is so beautiful, so shallow & clear, can't wait to share memories with friends from Raro at one of my top favorite place on this beautiful planet of ours.
