So, 3 days on Samoa and it rained every day. Not Manchester rain; proper tropical rain! However we still managed to get sun burnt on our shoulders. We stayed at Samoana Resort, which, despite the rain, managed to keep us occupied for 3 days, but at a very different pace to what we experienced in LA. It’s just idyllic with a fantastic reef and colourful fish just 5 metres off the beach. Our room had a private outdoor shower and having a hot shower while the tropical rain is falling is something that has to be experienced. The down side of the whole experience was the mosquitoes choosing to dine out on us every night. Neil’s bite tally is 19 on the left leg below the knee and 14 on the right, then around another 15 on other body parts. Helen’s bite count is lower but she always reacts worse to them so some of hers look a lot worse. And that’s with using insect repellent. We’ve never used so much Anthisan either.
