American Samoa and Samoa Trip 2022 - 5th Day Pt. 2 - Finally in Samoa! | Seeing Mom | Tanoa Tusitala
[Music] Talofa family and friends! Welcome back to our Channel. We have arrived in Samoa it was a short easy flight with absolutely beautiful views of Tutuila and Upolu. Definitely check out that video if you haven't already. In this video we drive from the airport to see Mom and check into the hotel Tanoa Tusitala hope you enjoy and give us a thumbs up! That flight, man that was a small plane / but it was fun [Music] [Music] we actually had a little bit of a mix up with the rental car and it had the wrong time for our arrival so we actually missed our rental car reservation. But the guys at faleolo were
so helpful and helped us call and we ended up taking a taxi to the rental car location. Our Taxi Driver drove FAST which was a big surprise after the 25 miles an hour speed limit in American Samoa. Everyone had been telling me how nice Samoa was and I was not disappointed.
