This was our third trip to the Cook Islands and the beautiful Rarotonga. Our first trip was for our wedding and honeymoon, the second to visit DH's mother and the latest to visit family again.
Rarotonga is defiantly not a large island, nor thankfully is it dominated by tourists and the tourist "culture". It's always wonderful to try a few local restaurants (which there are a number and always of high quality), have a snorkel and have some adventure.
My favourite Cook Island dish is the Ika Mata, a raw fish dish, marinated with coconut milk, vegetables and spices. But the food is always so good no mater what you choose.
This time we tried out the buggy adventures, and the recent rain had made it a bit muddy to say the least!
For a city girl one of the great experiences this trip was the little piggy's that were born. They are so cute and cheeky! Although I can't say we'll be getting any for our backyard in the near future!
Although our next trip is still a little way off, I'm already looking forward to it.
