from australia we headed to fiji at last a bit of sun before before heading to the cold climates of new zealand. so with the course of anti-biotics still underway for the majority of the week alcohol was off the agenda, fiji is essence proved a valuable detox period for me. it is probably worth saying at this point we originally had no intention of going to fiji but we had had an extra stop in our round the world ticket so we were advised that this may be a good place to stop over for week, so when we arrived we had no real expectations, it was more about getting the week out the way before we got to new zealand!!!!how wrong could we be fiji was incredible - we moved between 5 islands in 6 days one of which, the last, you could walk round in a few minutes. the locals were so friendly and when you arrive and leave an island they great you singing!!!we met a great group of people and had such a laugh - it was here we discovered myself and chris have doubles for me it was tom sizemore and chris, Mr.timnus (a character from narnia) - ha ha ha!!!!!!!fiji was pretty much just relaxing on the coral beaches all day under the sun then an hour before dinner a game of touch, then a few cheeky beers before bed time - a hard life!!!!although on the last day another injury did occur when i took a chunk off of the end of my toe when i dived into the coral sea - will i never learn!!!!
