Since i can remember all i ever dreamed about was going to the Cook Islands. Not just because the sea is beautifully crystal clear, white sandy beaches and a coconut tree in every direction. Although this did help. But that the people are the kindest and most warming cultured human beings i have ever had the privilege of indulging a conversation with.

Spend the day snorkeling and swimming in the pristine waters, Rarotonga is the quintessential tropical island of the South Pacific, enclosed by a surrounding reef and aqua blue waters. Pearl white beaches, secret swimming holes, waterfalls, trendy Cafe’s, local markets.

If this journey has taught me anything it’s that you are as strong and powerful as you allow yourself to be, and that the most difficult part of any endeavor is taking the first step, making the first decision.

Before you make a big decision like moving away, everyone you’ve ever met will throw unwarranted advice at you like a desperate sales woman in a store. Some of it’s useful, but mostly not. Everybody has an opinion, or a vague relative you can get in touch with who moved there, or a scary story about a girl being mugged and murdered in the city you’re moving to. Thanks, that’s really helpful.

In reality, making a really big move away from home sends you on a roller coaster of emotions that you didn’t even know you had the ability to feel. It’s nerve wracking, exciting, terrifying, satisfying and really throws you head first into adulthood. If you’re even considering making a move away from your home town you’re already halfway out the door- now you just have a few months of daily count downs, listening to bad advice and nervous planning to get through. Good luck! I promise you, it will be worth it.
