In his college years in the late ’80s, Rob Kusters, Founder and Director of Pacific Island Travel travelled extensively in the Pacific. As a student he often travelled with his backpack, these days with his wife and children he likes to travel a little more luxuriously. But the adventure is still the same, breathtaking beauty, warm and friendly culture and really getting back to nature. Once you travel to the Pacific you will leave yearning to return!
