And as Alisha's short visit comes to an end, words on her blog make it clear that Mitiaro has left a lasting impression on her.
"The humbleness of the people, the relaxed way of life here is something to truly appreciate and admire! I can see they still hold on to their traditions, culture and values being displayed in everything they do, always looking out for each other. This Island is a true magical untouched little island gem in the South Pacific. Definitely worth a visit !"
