So sorry the update has taken ages but we have struggled to find electricity let alone a computer! We have been out on the Fijian islands for just over two weeks and have not even had power for a light bulb at most places! Back on the Mainland now and have managed to find an ancient form of something resembling the internet!
It has been an experience in Fiji! The snorkelling and the beaches as expected, are wonderful but the rain (pretty constant for about 4 days), bugs, food, cold showers and accommodation weren't quite so great! We have been sleeping in what can only be described as garden sheds and eating curry flavour rice for every meal! lol! But we have had some laughs and made the best of it. We went to see the island Tom Hanks filmed Castaway on which was beautiful and Joe got to swim with a big reef shark! ha ha! We have done lots of kayaking and snorkelling - also went on a cave trip where you had to dive under the water (very dark) and swim down to get in it - was good except the giant crabs in the caves.
Back in Nadi for a few days now before we head to the US. Our room here has air conditioning which is great as it is now very humid. We are planning to meet a couple we met in New Zealand in LA to go to Universal Studios which should be fun. We have lots of pictures from Fiji and the end of New Zealand but we will have to wait until we find a more sophisticated computer to put them up.
Hope all is well at home. Will update properly when we get to America.
Lots of love
Joe and Em xx
