A big Bula to everybody!(bula means hello in Fijian)
We arrived in Fiji last Friday, and stopped one night on the main Fiji Island(Viti levu) in an awesome hostel- it's luxury! On our first real day in Fiji we headed to the marina to catch a boat that went to the Yasawa Islands. We soon realised that this place is Paradise(check out the photo's you will soon see what we mean)! The Fijian people are so friendly, on the boat trip we went out the back for a fag and got talking to Jerry(Fijian man who owns a resort) he kept buying us drinks and in 2hrs we got through 5 fiji bitters(lager)! Even Kerry liked it which says something hey! Anyway we got to the first resort it was called Sunrise- we were greeted with a Fijian meal which Sam loved but Kerry hated! Then we were shown our rooms, the lady was like 'you've been upgraded to the Honeymoon suite', we were thinking this was a cash back result! However, that night we got talking to an Irish/Welsh couple who were incidently on there honeymoon and we soon realised that the so called 'honeymoon suite' was called that not because of the facilities in the room(because there were none!) but because it was high on a hill away from the rest of the rooms so you can make as much noise as you like, wink wink!!!The weather continually changed one minute burning sun the next it was pissing it down! That night we spent it drinking fiji bitters on Denise and Chris' veranda(The Irish couple) chatting!! We got on with them like a house on fire and had a great laugh! Hiya Lads!!!!!! If it wasn't for meeting them and having a laugh, i think we both would of died on the first Island! This was because the resort was filthy, and we had to share facilities with the infamous log leaver! Plus Kerry never ate much while there due to the mank food available and when she did eat something she threw up after it!!
After 2 days there, we moved onto the next Island. This was called Korovou resort! Instantly the mood lifted because the place was paradise- it was clean and we got good food 2!!! While there we snorkelled(the fish and coral are magnificient) and sea kayaked! Kez pooed herself though because the coral and rocks in places are very high and the boat could hit them!! Also a large shoal of fish decided to jump up out of the water directly into our kayak. Denise and Chris were pissing themselves at us(quote:it always happens to us!) We visted the village and were greeted with a kava ceremony, this is where you drink a solution made from the roots of plants and it makes you high and your mouth numb! We got a photo with the village people(not the ymca peeps) and one guy who was acting chief took a liking to Kerry, he was like 'ah baby, your so beautiful come and sit here baby'. With a few drinks at night we were taught a bula dance, everyone had to get up and dance, we made complete arses of ourselves!! But funny!!!
After leaving Korovou we couldn't imagine anything better or more beautiful, but then we went to Bounty Island! To all you peeps at home, this is where celebrity love Island is filmed. We stayed and used the same pool etc. We had our own little bure( a beach side hut) and we even had aircon,shower and toilet,yay!) We chilled all the time we were there it was ace!
Unfortunately after one night there we had too leave but not before encountering some cool little baby turtles and as we left a reef shark in the same place we were swimming!
We are now back to civilisation, but in a couple of days we plan to head down the coral coast. This is on the mainland again!
