Tickle Me Silly ‘Fertility’ Tonga Tortoise Tuesday
So you love traveling, checking out where the locals ‘go’ and the hidden mysteries woven into art, culture, and treasured family values and tradition. On Tonga you can party and drink kava at festivals till you drop, be impressed by the Sunday church turn outs, and then escape to deserted beaches where, between snorkeling in untouched coral gardens and sipping coconut juice, the most you need do is watch the waves slap against the shore.
The most comfortable time to visit this most delicious region is during the dry season between May and October. Not surprisingly, this is when most of the major festivals are held. It is also considered to be the region’s high season, though there isn’t necessarily much difference in costs. The wet season (ostensibly its low season) lasts from November to April. March tends to be the wettest month, especially in Vava’u. Remember, though, that most precipitation occurs at night and the main discomfort will be caused by a rise in the lethargy-inducing heat and humidity. Tonga lies squarely within the South Pacific’s notorious cyclone belt. The season for tropical storms and cyclones is between November and March. Cyclones seem to occur, on average, every 10 to 15 years. And you definitely don’t want to be ‘caught’ in a cyclone without the proper gear and instructions—-in fact, better to avoid them altogether. 🙂
If you plan to come during the December-January holiday period, when huge numbers of Tongans return for the holidays (mostly from New Zealand, Australia and the USA), it’s wise to book flights well in advance. Safe better than sorry, visit Tonga during the summer months say, ‘now’ in June! A most delightfully DRY time you’ll have for sure. And be sure to pick up a Tonga Tortoise or at least a picture or poster of this timeless island whimsical creature while visiting as you’ll delight in the prosperity, gain, influence, fertility, abundance and magical aura this Tonga Tortoise brings to your life! And if you cannot visit Tonga today, then escape to the Island of Tonga today with creative visual imagery—–perhaps this is where you’ll meet your soul mate? You just never know. . .
Until you go! 🙂
And perhaps . . .you’ll soon find out!
