Hello everyone! i'm now in fiji, after a helluva long flight. i spent my first few nights in Nadi, the town nearest the airport. It was horrible town, with loads of people harrassing you and trying to scam you. I got out of there and booked myself onto a boat off the mainladn and to on \e of the islands in the Yasawa group - an island callad Waya Lailai, and that was incredible, met some great people there who knew people from Emanuel - James Gibb and Charlie Meek. The island was paradise with white sand and crystal clear water. I was staying in a dorm but it was a pretty cool dorm - a traditional Fijian Bure (Thatched hut). The Fijians are incredibly friendly, always willing to listen and always interested in what you're doing, where you're from, where you're going.
There were a number of activites ou could do there, went fishing twice, caught absolutely nothing on my first trip, then it was the opposite way round on the second trip - caught a massive one! i wanted to post the photo of it but i can't seem to get my camera to hook up to this PC.
I'm back in Nadi now, to be honest i just want to get to New Zealand now, but i've gpt another 5 days here - until the 12th. either i'm going to change the date of my flight or i'll have to stick out the 5 days going over to Suva, the Fijian capital on the other side of the island.
I'll try and post again in a few days,
I'm missing everyone back home, hope everyone's safe and well,
