  • Definitely no need for a water park in Samoa since nature provides the most amazing slides. 😍
.
Just be sure you do a proper safety check before you slide:
- check the water level and for dangerous stones at the exit first
- check for the least pumpy track to go down
- check for water snakes 😬
- definitely wear shoes
.
And obviously our favourite way to explore the island chasing all the adventures spots is by renting a scooter. ❤
.
Who else is in love with exploring life by scooter? 😍

  • at the beach, life is different. 🌊
time doesn’t move hour to hour,
but mood to moment.
we live by the currents,
plan by the tides,
and follow the sun.
smell the sea,
and feel the sky,
let your soul and spirit fly. ✨

  • You know what this amazing waterfall is famous for? 😃
.
Yeah sliding it down!! 😄 Seems insane, hence better don’t forget to check the water level first!!
.
The reviews, pictures and videos you might have found, showing a fun and safe slide, could have been in place for a long time. And as everything in the world is underlying a permanent change the conditions here have changed completely, washing a lot of sediment into the river.
.
So we just took a refreshing shower here, embracing the vibrating strength of nature on our shoulders. 💦

.

  • Climbing down the ladder to the most amazing natural swimming pool we have ever been to 😍💦
.
The To Sua Ocean Trench is definitely our number 1 place to visit in Samoa. 😃
.
But this amazing island offers a lot more water adventures such as snorkelling at amazing coral reefs. After having seen many snorkelling spots around the world, the spots in Samoa were the most impressive. 🐠🐬🦈
.
If you want to go for our personal favourite spot, you should not miss out on Matereva beach. 🌴
.
And in case you feel like your body had enough time floating around in crystal clear water, why not go on a trek to a vulcanic crater, which is surrounded by tropical rain forest? 😍
.
We could go on and on, so if your heart seeks not only paradise, but also real adventure, trust us - Samoa won’t let you down! 😃

  • Fiji is known as one of the paradises on earth 🌴☀️ but if you go there, wanting to have a nice resort on one of the smaller islands, you should better be ready to crack your piggy bank. 😅
.
If you have limited budget, you have two choices:
.
1) Hop on a totally overpriced coconut cruiser to the smaller islands and stay in the most expensive shared dorms you have ever seen. 😏
.
2) Stay on the main island of Fiji at super nice resorts, where you get a lot for your money - even an own pool villa. 💦
.
Since option one is still way more expensive and as a couple we appreciate our privacy we sticked with option two. 😍
.
Our top 3 things to do in Fiji:
.
1️⃣ Shark diving at Beqa Adventurer Divers in Pacific Harbour (we saw around 30-40 bull, white tip and grey reef sharks 😱)
.
2️⃣ Stay at a private pool villa at Wellesley Resort, which in our view also has the nicest beach on the main island 🌴
.
3️⃣ Take a cultural village tour and get to know Fijian culture 🔥
.
Ever been to Fiji? What did you like the most? ☀️

  • Samoa, you are really impressive 🔥
.
The island is basically an extinct volcano. Hence you can find blowholes and black lava stones just next to the paradise beaches. 🌴
.
A country where tourism is still rare and foreign hotel chains haven't come yet. Therefore the country and its culture is still the way it used to be long before us.  Nowhere we found so open and warm people being real straight from their heart. ❤️
.
If you want to have a scenic lunch or dinner at @returntoparadiseresortsamoa the rock bar is the place to be. ☺️ .

  • Happy Valentine's Day ❤
.
We celebrate this special day at the beautiful @returntoparadiseresortsamoa in Samoa, which is one of the most exclusive hotels on the island. ☀️
.
The only difficult question here is which of the 4 pools to choose for a refreshment. 😁 Or should it be the warm ocean with the white sandy beach and a nearby coral reef? 🙏🌴💦
.
Usually travel life bears a lot of difficult decisions to take every day. Even though the choice is hard today, we think we can live with all the options. 😅😁

  • Samoa - you are amazing 😍
.
We have only been here for a few days, and Samoa keeps surprising us every day. 😍🌴☀️
.
We just made it to the to To Sua Ocean Trench and were stunned. Over the course of millennia the erosion of the lava fields left the area pocketed forming incredible large blowholes. To Sua is the largest one and translates to big hole.
.
It’s surrounded by tropical gardens and you have to wind down a cliffside path that takes you down to the probably most amazing swimming pool of the world.
.
Nature at its best ❤️

  • Embracing the joy of having an amazing breakfast with a view 😍🌴
.
This was not always the case for me (Andi) since I suffered from a severe food intolerance.
.
During the worst time I basically couldn’t eat much more than plain rice, hence eating became mainly an inconvenient burden. As the root of such disorders are very seldom physical, the only thing that really helped me was a dramatic change in lifestyle, especially stress reduction.
.
Now I can almost eat everything and thanks to my better half amazing food became a joy of live I never want to miss again. ✨❤️
.
So I proudly confess Cory turned me into a real foodie. 🤣❤️

  • Who else can’t sit still for too long? 😅🙋‍♂️🙋‍♀️
.
We both just cannot spend a whole day only relaxing at the beach, laying in the sun and getting some sunburns. We just really always have to do something active in between. 😃
.
Thankful the @wellesleyresortfiji offers lots of free activities for guests, such as snorkelling and kayaking. I found a new passion and raced down the beach. 😜

  • Just go with the flow, have faith and enjoy ✨
.
Very often certain things do not work out the way you want them or the way you  thought to be right. 🙏
.
But always remember: everything in life happens for you and not to you. 🌸
.
Maybe that one thing you were disappointed about turned out to be the best thing that could have ever happened.
.
The job you didn’t get, led you to one 10 times better.
.
The pain you felt and you finally overcame made you 100 times stronger and brought you so much further in life.
.
That’s why we just have to trust that greater things are aligning for us. Let go gracefully and be surprised where life takes you next. ❤️
