When I was about 13 my family took a trip to Samoa. We spent two and a half weeks there. It was absolutely incredible.
It’s a gorgeous place that, unlike many beautiful islands, hasn’t been overrun by tourists.
We visited a black sand beach that was completely empty. We stood right next to the massive Alofaaga Blowholes as they spewed water everywhere. And we slept in a fale just feet from the water.
