Somoa Savaii & Upolu

 

So Somoa was nicer than I expected. Not that I thought it would be unpleasant, I just didn’t know anything about it. I started by taking a ferry to Savaii, the less developed of the two main islands. I stayed at a really nice place with my first infinity pool (below) and did some diving from here. the diving was bad, but they had also recently suffered a bad cyclone.

We explored some caves. There was Dwarf Cave, where the elderly guide whacked me in my head with a flashlight, and below, Pea Pea Cave.

Pea Pea Cave was named for these birds that are born and live in the cave-a big deal apparently.

We saw an old church that was taken over by lava.

I did some kayaking from the lagoon to the ocean

We found this awesome waterfall…

…and had it all to ourselves

on Upolu we went to To Sua Trench. A famous sinkhole I saw in National Geographic a few months before this trip.

Below is the site from Survivor Somoa.

A treehouse we spotted on our drive around the island. I think people can stay there, but the road was washed out.
