Well here we are, Day two of our Rarotongan adventure and if we are honest, we've done f### all! The beach is fantastic and right on our doorstep.. we have a cheap room and the hostel is full of backpackers.. SWEET! Only seems to be two problems at the minute... and wait for it...
1: Jet lag: led to a monster 13 hour sleep yesterday and our record bed time so far has been 9oclock.
2: The weather is a bit shoddy. No where near as bad as in Blighty (before you all laugh to yourselves!) but overcast and showery whilst still being 25 degrees. Thanks for the comment (Mothers) it shows that some people have been bothered to register (we know you have Col and Mike, but we eagerly await some input)
Sorry for the lack of visual stimuli, the hostel, being budget does not allow for the uploading of data but merely the trickle of incoming info. We will, however endeavour to put some on in Fiji (next week!)
The islands are very expensive for phone calls - $10 for three mins of calls (so we will call more when we arrive in New Zealand in a couple of weeks time.
Snorkelling has been an amazing experience for us both. We have seen some incredible fish and a multitude of slimy squelchy sluggy type things. Pol seems to have made friends with two dogs and a pair of hermit crabs whom she has affectionately named "Hermi" and "Gary"
We seem to be eating well (bread, noodles and beans) but we dont care as we dont have anything strenous to do.
thats aboot your lot for today, we probably will update again soon so keep any eye out for more adventures of pollyali..
love you all.
