Am doing something similar but confused myself as leaving Vancouver on 23rd Dec then not sure whether to spend xmas in New Zealand alone, or go to Fiji first and skip New Zealand completely or just go to Brisbane then on to Fiji then back to Sydney to work...if that makes sense!

I was planning on going to Fiji either 3rd of Jan or just in time for New Years Eve and possibly get involved in the Hula Loop with the Feejee Experience - worth researching their website for surrounding islands. Will you be there for xmas too?:)

Right well went to STA travel on weekend and putting deposit down today....! I can confirm that I am going to Fiji now on 23rd Dec - 9th Jan - initially planning on being in Nadi for xmas, then work my way around the island with the feejee experience, go over to Beachcomber for New Years Eve (if I can get a bed) then going to take part in Tribewanted for a week! I would recommend booking something if going around xmas and new year.

My first xmas alone away from home so bricking it but I am sure we can overcome it togetha!

My itinerary:

New York Oct 27th
Ohio Nov 4th
Argentina - Nov 11th - Buenos Aires, Iguazu Falls, Salta
Florida Nov 26th
California Dec 6th - L.A, San Diego, Mexico, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon
Vancouver Dec 13th - Whistler, Rocky Mountains - Banff
Fiji Dec 23rd
Brisbane Jan 9th
Sydney Jan 19th
