July 2010

Hi Lesley

The holiday is over but the memories live on. Warm weather, beautiful blue water and sleep ins!!

Everything went really well - Iririki and Breakas were really good, rooms spacious, clean with all the facilities you would want (ie. fridge, hot water, clean sheets/towels, tea & coffee). As per last time Iririki didn'ts have windsurfers working and only one catamaran something to note, both properties had beautiful gardens which they looked after really well. Meals were a little dear for us Kiwis - in the hotels lunch was minimum $20 (hamburger/chips) and evening meals minimum $25, average $40-$50. The hotels on the main street looked a little rundown and unfortunately money from tourism is not going back into the community which is sad. People have little but still are happy and smile alot. Transportation so easy on the buses (Vatu150/NZD2.00).

Thanks for organising the holiday for us, it was awesome!

Kind Regards
