Cook Islands - March/April, 2004


In March of 2004 we took a vacation to the Cook Islands for 10 days. We spend a few hours in LA where we met up with Kiff
It is fairly long trip, but really not a big deal. Air New Zealand made the bulk of the journey comfortable.

We split our time between two of the Cooks Islands - Rarotonga and Aitutaki. Both are wonderful. Aitutaki, is just a little more special. Rarotonga is more commercialized (which is a relative term), but Aitutaki really makes you feel like you have gotten away from it all. No huge hotels and casinos. Just first-class resorts without all the extra flair.

The water is probably the warmest I have ever swam in. Aitutaki's warm lagoon almost seemed like a hottub. We hope to go back soon. In the winter of 2005, The Cook Islands were hit by a strong typhoon. While there was considerable damage, most of the resorts weathered the storm.
