Rarotonga Ramble

27 September 2014

Flew back from my first trip to Rarotonga this morning. EARLY this morning. We left Raro at 0235 local time (1235 UTC), and arrived at 0500 local time here in NZ (1700 UTC). Have to say, travelling at those hours doesn’t strike me as entirely desirable — but we had a good load of passengers, so clearly the demand exists.

The weather in the tropics was kind (for the 34 hours we were there), although swimming wasn’t an option with the surf chopping up the water in the lagoon and creating something of a mini-rip on the steep-ish beach — making it impossible to avoid the coral. Ouch.
