Yup, that's what everybody says. I haven't snorkeled in a long while but look forward to doing it there. Just today I got some "shoes" to wear in the water, as I'm told the seabed is very rocky. Sunblock? You bet, also a brimmed hat. How recently were you there and for how long? Everybody raves about its beauty.
Thanks, Sandra. The volunteer project is set up by Frontier, a British society working on environmental issues. I'll have my laptop with me but need to get an adaptor plug in order to recharge it. Power source itself is okay, just the plug-in part is different from the US. It appears to be a different style also from what is used in Tahiti. So I'm still searching. Any hints gratefully accepted.
Hi Sandra, I leave Sept. 17 for the Cook Islands where I'll be volunteering in a school in Aitutaki for 2+ weeks before heading to Papeete for the Aranui III cruise around the Marquesas Islands. Any advice or comments about Aitutaki? I'll be housed with a local family. Thanks, Dorothy

Hi Sandra, It is a little confusing. The group on Tripatini, as the groups on Facepage and LinkedIn are open to the public--not only members of the Assoc. To see who the members of the Assoc. are go to the website http://ifwtwa.org. We hope more people will join this group and we can exchange ideas on food, wine and travel writing, and we will encourage them to check out the benefits of IFWTWA--the Association.
I hope this helps. Cheers John
