Los Alamos based travel company Journey Pacific will host a free “South Pacific Travel Information Evening” 5:30 to 7 p.m., today, Dec. 3, at Fuller Lodge.
The evening, which is open to the public, will include a presentation of images and stories about the natural beauty, cultural heritage, and variety of activities that the South Pacific has to offer.
Journey Pacific owner Colette Levine is originally from England, but for the last 5 years she has been living in Los Alamos with her husband and two sons.
She started her company 12 years ago and has been offering unique travel packages to the South Pacific ever since. Levine has lived in Australia, traveled to Fiji 20 times and has also been to lesser-known areas such as the Cook Islands and Vanuatu.
Levine’s personal relationships with resort owners and tour operators and her intimate knowledge of the region allow her to help her clients choose the perfect location for their travel desires that fit within their budget.
Special guests from Vanuatu Tourism and Fiji will join Levine in Los Alamos especially for this event. Together they will take you on an informational journey through Australia, New Zealand and the islands of the South Pacific.
Refreshments will be served, and special packages to various destinations will be offered.
The South Pacific has so much to offer, from the luxury of Tahiti with the over-water bungalows, to the various islands of Fiji where movies like The Blue Lagoon and Castaway were filmed.
You can feel like you’re in the middle of a National Geographic episode on a visit to the island nation of Vanuatu, where it’s like stepping back in time. Villagers there wear traditional dress, and the last incident of cannibalism was in the 1960’s. You can see anything from erupting volcanoes and waterfalls to the underwater beauty, which is famous for its wrecks and reefs.
