Niue is a small and tidy island nation. We have spent four lovely days here, and in company with Oyster Moon have explored the island.
The culture definitely has its roots in the South pacific reminds me of the north west communities in the Highlands of Scotland. Everyone seems to know everybody else and does a number of jobs if they can. There are more native Niuans in New Zealand then here and they come back to visit family on high days and holidays. Sadly some never return as evidenced by the number of empty houses left crumbling.
And now it is time to move on. So farewell to Niue; a lovely island.
