Leo ilikua ni siku yetu ya mwisho hapa Cook Islands. Tuliondoka usiku na Air New Zealand to Auckland then another flight to Sydney, Australia.Muda wa asubuhi tuvisit local market ambapo tulipata nafasi ya kufanya shopping kidogo pia kupata local lunch. Kitu kilichonifurahisha zaidi ni kupata nafasi ya kuona local musician wakiimba na kucheza, lovely :)

I don’t mind to do this Lagoon boat tour again, was worthy it! :)

OMG! What a beautiful place kama inavyoonekana kwenye picha ni breathtaking kwa kweli. Siku nzima tulifanya kuzungukia visiwa hivi huku tukifurahia traditional music na kupata local lunch ya nguvu. Hii boat pia ilitumika kwenye reality tv show survivor Cook Islands kwa wale ambao wameangalia hii show, wanaweza nielewa zaidi.

Siku yetu ya pili hapa Aitutaki Island tuliitumia kwa kurelax kwenye beach, huku Amani na Malaika wakitumia ipatasavyo siku hii kwa kucheza na kuswim all day lol! Watoto wangu wanapenda sana outdoors ni kwamba walivyokua USA walikua kama wamefungiwa vile, tulivyotua tu Cook Islands walijiachia ipasavyo:) Beach za hapa ni nzuri sana, maji yake meupe pia yenye kina kifupi sana ambapo unaweza kutembea kwa umbali mkubwa bila kupata kina kirefu.

Off to Aitutaki, Cook Islands-Our around the world trip Nov-Dec 2013

Tuliondoka mji wa Raratongo na Rarotonga Airline ambapo ilituchukua karibu saa moja kufika Aitutaki. Kisiwa hiki ni moja ya visiwa vingi vilivyozunguka Cook Islands ni kisiwa kizuri sana chenye wakazi wachache sana. Kisiwa hiki kipo karibu na visiwa vingine vidogo vingi so ni njia rahisi kutokea hapa kuelekea kwenye visiwa hivyo kwa njia ya boat. Tukiwa angani tuliweza kuona visiwa hivyo kwa juu uku vikizungukwa na lagoon ambapo ina pendeza sana. Tuliwasili na kupokelewa na mtu kutoka resort tunayofikia huku tukivalishwa mataji ya maua na kupewa kinywaji cha madafu yakiwa baridi kabisa, was so nice :)

Kwa bahati mbaya siku hii tuliyoingia kulikua na bushfires na resort yetu ilikua karibu kabisa na hills zilizokua zinawaka moto. Wenyeji walijitahidi karibu usiku kucha kuzima na kujaribu kuzuia moto usije kwenye makazi ya watu. Tuliogopa ila moto haukufika kwenye makazi but moshi wake sasa uligeuza paradise kuwa si paradise kabisa harufu ya moshi ilikua too much :(

Was about time to say goodbye to America tulikua tumeshachoka na tunahitaji some sunshine and beach lol! Tuliondoka kwa ndege ya United Airline kutoka San Francisco to Los Angeles tukitokea then pale tukachukua Air New Zealand to Rarotonga, Cook Islands. It’s about 9 hours from Los Angeles to Rarotonga. Visiwa hivi vikiwa chini ya serikali ya New Zealand, na watu wanaoishi hapa ni Polynesian. Mara ya kwanza kuona hivi visiwa ilikua kwenye American reality tv show ya survivor. So I was very happy to be here :)
