Bula! We are safe and sound and loving it in Fiji. Not sure we have ever been so hot in our lives, nor so mosquito-bite ridden! Last count over 100- each.
Have spent the majority of our time on Nananu-I-Ra, a true tropical paradise, complete with white beaches, and beautiful diving right on our doorstep. We are now SSI qualified divers. We saw so much underwater, ranging from spectacular soft coral, to a white-tip reef shark. I was in marine geography heaven!!!
We have met so many fantastic people- like 'the beach'
, only better. The resort is closing down today, to be taken over by the Hilton who will ruin the island. So we were the last divers to qualify, and the last to have a birthday.
And in true British style it rained for Alex's birthday. I managed to secure a cake specially baked for alex, with a little help from the dive instructor, brought in by boat.
We have had a truly magical time here and will be sad to leave the smiling people, golden sands, hammocks and lush tropical atmosphere tomorrow. On to New Zealand...
