  • Last day in Fiji After 6 days in Fiji doing very little, our plan was to cap this by doing nothing at all. Slightly scuppered by the air conditioning in our room going wrong and dripping water everywhere, including the light fitting underneath it. Posted by AnneandDerek in Going east | Jan 6, 2018

  • Cave-diving (sort of) A bit of exercise with a 30 minute walk across the island to a tea house. We then had the choice of walking back or getting a water taxi; we were glad we took the “easy option” Posted by AnneandDerek in Going east | Jan 3, 2018
  • Lounging on the beach After 4 hours cruising from our overnight stop we arrived at Nanuya, where the boat company has their own private beach. Having tied up to a coconut palm, people drifted across at variou Posted by AnneandDerek in Going east | Jan 2, 2018

  • Leaving NZ Our flight out wasn’t until early afternoon, so we spent the morning at an exhibition about the earthquakes in 2011 – and 2010. The earlier one didn’t get much reporting in UK as there we Posted by AnneandDerek in Going east | Dec 30, 2017
  • Suva - where cruise ships stop & traders know itStill intrigued by our determination to catch the public bus into Suva, Seru walks with us to the road to flag one down. Buses are a mix of 12-seater minibuses and conventional ones and all run on Fiji time... timetable Posted by jbushie in A South Pacific Paradise | Jun 16, 2014
  • More luxurious not-much... with fish addedThe days just keep getting better here. This morning is wind-free and warm with a glassy sea and pool.

  • Today's lesson is FOOD... And not just eating itFrom the range of paid activities on offer, we have allowed ourselves one excursion and one spa treatment. Today is 'Food Safari' day!

  • Today is RELAXATION... Self-inflicted and imposed.I tossed for quite a while last night. The lure of premium snorkelling is great but the thought of kayakng at least 1km through open sea to an outer reef is unnerving. Surely the kayak would sink with my weight Posted by jbushie in A South Pacific Paradise | Jun 19, 2014
  • Yep... Have died and gone to heaven.A five hour flight 'overnight' is not really an overnight flight in the sense of a chance to sleep while flying. Not when there is supper, overhead movies twinkling, passengers coughing, toddlers squealing and lights on for descent at around Posted by jbushie in A South Pacific Paradise | Jun 13, 2014
  • Sunday - a day of luxurious not-much.The rain wakes me overnight, drumming on the tin roof that lies under the traditional thatch.

  • Monday - a day of luxurious not-much!I am happy to beat my alarm and wake just after 8am. The sky is blue, the sun is shining and the breeze is gentle. The morning is bike riding for Emma and reading for me. And eating, of course. Posted by jbushie in A South Pacific Paradise | Jun 15, 2014
