Actually made it…..BULA FIJI

Arrived very early this morning due to Visa issues checking in at Hong Kong airport. Thank goodness for technology opened up the laptop and hooray the visa had been granted, cut that a bit fine! After an 11 hour flight, virtually no sleep and a few bumps along the way the big bird brought us down safely. We were greeted by a typical Fijian welcome singing dancing and playing guitars, found it all rather emotional! The 333 islands are scattered across 518,000 square kilometers of Pacific Ocean, beautiful and diverse.Population 837,271, don’t think I’ll meet them all. I was picked up by Joe who told me all about the island as we drove the 3 hours from Nadi to Suva, stopping and indulging in hot roasted sweetcorn and beautiful fresh fruits from the road side. Settled in at the hotel and went to sleep for a few hours totally exhausted. Has been a very exciting journey so far….looking forward to the next 6 months!!
