Join our adventure in The Kingdom of Tonga

On to Vava’u

We are moving to Vava’u for our second home-stay, which is a 24 hour boat ride from Nuku’alofa, Tonga. It sounds fun but it’ll be on top of a freighter ship in the middle of the night so it could be Indiana Jones esque.  We are currently in Fu’amotu which is the summer home of the queen.  We love our host family here and will miss them a great deal.  They have been so good to us.  The food here is very much like that of the states.  Some things are different, but generally it similar and everyone eats like they live in Tennessee.  They really like New Zealand corned beef (pulu) too.

We have no idea what our internet access will be like for the next 6 weeks so our updates and emails may be much less frequent than that of here in Fu’amotu. Vava’u is one of the 5 island groups here in Tonga and is much further north than our current position here in Tongatapu (which is where the capital city of Nuku’alofa is).  Vava’u is a mountainous island area and is warmer than here.  We will spend at least 6 weeks there and then we will be coming back to Nuku’alofa for the last couple of weeks before swearing in as Peace Corps volunteers.  Then we have no idea where we will be.

We are thinking of everyone and we hope you all are doing well!
