Tonga 2014

Bruce was getting itchy feet.  True, we have a big journey planned later in the year, but he was watching me work, thinking of all the money I was earning and devising ways to spend it.  So here we are in The Kingdom of Tonga for a 10 day R&R break.  Yes, retirement is hard work.

Tonga is the first country to have a sunrise, just west of the date line.  Tonga is made up of 176 islands that is spread over a massive 700,000 sq km of ocean – that is three Victoria’s or 7/8th of New South Wales.  The total population is about 106,000 spread over 40 islands.

I can tell you more about Tonga, but I’ll just get it from wikipedia and Tonga’s tourist site.
