Why “ISLAND AWE”?
Because we are continuously awe-struck by the beauty that greets us on the many lesser known islands we discover.
At Island Awe, we explore little-known pristine islands in the South Pacific and share our firsthand information on this website.
We’d like to inspire YOU to a journey to these paradises.
Right now, our focus is on the Cook Islands, and you can find all the details about its 12 inhabited islands here.
But that is just the beginning, our journey to other awe-inspiring tropical islands continues!
Unlike most travel bloggers, we use to live in the countries we explore. This gives us time to get to know its islands, people, culture, and language in-depth, making it an authentic experience.
While doing so, we take all our belongings with us: a total of 6 suitcases, 2 with camera equipment and 4 more for all personal stuff. That’s all we own and all we need. It gives us the freedom and flexibility to go wherever we want.
We’d love to share all our island findings to inspire people to travel more to the little-known islands that are often the true paradises – untouched and with hardly any visitors. And there are quite a few of them on planet earth!
We are both over 50, and approach new things in a relaxed way and with lots of life & travel experience. We go where life takes us 😊
The islands we explore are very untouched, where you can
- reconnect with nature,
- enjoy mental and physical freedom,
- and find peace and quiet without distraction
You will find
- deserted beaches,
- hardly any visitors,
- a slower, more relaxed pace
- and lots of space and solitude
If you are in the mood for adventure, this is where you can
- explore places that are really off the beaten path,
- with unspoiled, wild landscapes,
- and centuries-old cultures
If these places tempt you, then Island Awe is for you. Stay tuned!
