Sep 22, 2007 - Natewa Bay - Savusavu - Nadi - Treasure Island

Natewa Bay - Savusavu - Nadi - Treasure Island A day of travel. I was up early, in time for sunrise at about 5:30, and a final breakfast with the whole crew. We waved goodbye to the first departures at 7:00 a.m., then I headed to my cabin to begin packing (I've kept my last minute packing record intact right from my Vancouver departure). At 9:00 it was our turn to leave. We boarded the zodiac and left the TuiTai behind, giving the crew a final wave goodbye. We headed straight to airport and checked in, but with another two hours to go...

Aug 1, 2007 - Ruddy Big Sharks!!

So I leave the beach house to head further down the coast to Uprising, a resort with free pick up for the Shark Dive. The resort itself was pretty new although I didn't think it was anything that special, Carly and Becca were there when I arrived which was cool however they were heading out that day. So after chilling on the beach with them I headed back to the dorm to grab my stuff for a shower, showered obviously, then headed back to the dorm in my pants as I do ... I said hi to the women on the bunks below who had just arrived, two...

Jul 27, 2007 - Bula! Welcome to Love Island

Well finally I arrived in Nadi, Fiji after a connecting flight via Auckland. The flight was supposed to arrive at 1:40am although didn't even leave until 2am so it was a long night, however by the time I arrived at the airport I was able to jump straight on a local bus right down towards the beach house on the coral coast. Randomly whilst looking at places to stay on the internet I found the Beach House which sounded nice, then when I clicked on more info it mentioned the resort is where they filmed the 2nd series of Love Island so I...

Once again we're in the plane and on our way across the seas. Nadi, Fiji, expected time of arrival - 4.20pm Fiji time. Weather - beautiful. Stress levels - low. Time - party time.

Oct 26, 2006 - Waya

Got a pick up to the harbour at Lautoka and after some wrangling over the fact that the ferry I had paid for wasn't running I got a lift with the Octopus resort boat out to the Yasawa islands. This meant half a mile out from Waya I had a transfer to a motorised bath tub to get me to the village. I was welcomed with singing, a floral necklace and a coconut to drink - I would have taken a picture but I was still getting over the boat switch! The dorm was a traditional thatch bure right beneath the cliff face. I spent five days here just...
