Fiji was beautiful but it rained constantly. Not just rained, thunderstormed every day! We spent two days in Nadi (the "mainland") and took a boat to the Yasawa islands in hope that it would be different there. The resort was amazing & we were greeted by people singing & playing guitars. The food was included in the price & the swimming pool was lovely & we even did some snorkelling in a dry hour! But we couldn't do anything about the weather & there was only so much scrabble & reading we could do so we booked our flight onto Vancouver. We figured that we saved a bit of money from Fiji so we would do the Greyhound bus trip route down to LA.
