Greetings from Polynesia!

Here on the Cook Islands, which you may have never heard of. I certainly hadn't! I think their tourism marketing team needs to huddle up and fix this travesty. Why name your perfectly exotic islands after some pasty white explorer?

These islands are just as exotic as nearby Tahiti, Bora Bora or Fiji. And they'd sound just as exotic, exciting and enticing if they were known by their native names: Aitutaki and Roratonga. Right?

I'd elaborate further but... I'm doing absolutely nothing!

Well, let's see, there's Rarotonga, Aitutaki, Alui, Militiaro, Mangia, Takutea, Manuae, Mauke, and point to you, Palmerston. (Confession: I looked it up.) But what a gorgeous looking place.
