Ye hah booked tickets for 21 aug- 4 sept. Now to start planning. I may drive you mad with questions. We managed to get flights in and out of Samoa in the afternoon so can catch bus to and from airport. Thought we spend first 2 days in Apia then go Savi'i. Stay at Lousias chalats for 2 or 3 days, Savilian hotel sounds good as well. Then to Jolan fales then maybe around to manase. Not sure if it best to stat put in one or two places or stay at lots. Some reviews not great, Will use bus's and maybe a car 1 or 2 days to explore. Go back to upolo and Taufua fales? Also maybe go to smaller islands for a look. I also wish to pay my respects to those who lost their loved ones in the tusnami. Would like to go to a fia fia night so have to think about timing eg best place to spend weekends. Want to eat at markets and small eateries. Hope to snorkle, kayak, go walking if I can cope with the heat. Need to stay last night handy for bus to airport following day. Phew, hows this for starters? cheers Erin.
