Hello,

I hope you are all doing well. I am currently in Los Angeles and I plan to leave mid June to visit all the pacific island countries that are independent for around a month as I know that there is not that much to do on each island. I have planned the order of the trip (not the dates, just the order in which to most efficiently visit all countries). I wanted to know if anyone would be interested in joining for all/part of it.

Thank you.

Best regards,

Jimmy

I'm not sure about the idea that there isn't much to do in the Pacific Islands. I've spent a very happy week on Niue with a hired bicycle and my snorkeling gear. I can't wait to go back - swimming with curious sea snakes in and around rock arches was a particular favourite. Two weeks in the Cook Islands wasn't nearly long enough: we spent a week exploring the island of Atiu alone and never made it to Aitutaki. A week on Tanna in Vanuatu was just long enough to climb the volcano; hike to Port Resolution; have a look at the local fishing and fish farming industries; and visit a couple of villages.

I wished I had more time in Fiji; and Samoa; and I could go on..... I just wish I had time to go back. Every island is different and there are a lot of them !

Good luck with your travels.... Graeme

I guess you are right since each person's interests are different. I found them relaxing but I find the historical/cultural side more interesting which is why I stated that opinion. I appreciate your input however and will keep that in mind.

Thank you!

Will you be visiting Nan Madol? Highly recommended if you like visiting historical sites.

Also in Micronesia though, you have Chuuk and Yap which also are very interesting for anyone who likes history.

Just hopping between Pacific countries, you might miss out on some of this.
