Words by Bec Greening
From the time we arrived we knew it was going to be such a great experience.
Once all the agents had checked in, we were so fortunate to be invited to the Air New Zealand Departure lounge for a short while before priority boarding onto the aircraft. This allowed us a quick look at the aircraft’s business and premium economy sections of the plane which were great for me as I had never been exposed to this kind of luxury before!
Our flight was great, the aircraft so comfortable and I just loved the experience of flying with Air New Zealand! Unfortunately, sleep evaded me but I did enjoy the in-flight entertainment and found the flight to be quite pleasant, even though a couple of my new friends got to enjoy and experience SkyCouch!
We landed in Rarotonga and not long after that were quickly on the way to gorgeous Aitutaki! 3 days on this gorgeous island and whilst the weather was quite wet at times, I was amazed that the water remained so vividly blue and I just loved the Vaka Cruise! On Sunday, I suggested a trip to the local church, so a few of us went along and we really enjoyed the experience.
3 more days in Raro - many hotel inspections, cultural experiences, shopping, a lot of food and a lot of laughs. What a great time we all had!
So, in summary, thank you to everyone involved in making this famil happen. I feel really special to be able to experience such a trip and feel forever grateful to have beeb introduced to the Travel industry with my first famil being to the Cook Islands!
