I like to discover new places, not ordinary, not the one that anyone knows. I look for the return to innocence, to nature, to the world before Coca Cola and Sony. I've seen Asia, Africa, but this was really WOW.
Samoa is more clean then its' neighbors Tonga or Fiji, but their houses don't have windows. Samoan homes, locally known as "fale", are literally, a shelter above the head. And they do not need more.
When you really want something different, when you want to get away from it all, Samoa it's the destination. The nature is at its HOME. Although getting to Samoa it's an adventure itself, especially if you're traveling from Europe, after you arrive there you'll have the perfect vacation.
Without shopping center, fancy cars, no1 DJs, but with the most peaceful and scenic landscapes I've ever seen.

    Great tips and photos of your visit to Samoa. I didn't know that the locals have houses with no windows. To have that, the weather must be great -- and, also, without a lot of bugs.
