It's been a busy 10 days of resort hopping... it's a hard life!
We left Savusavu last week on another teeny plane, all feeling a bit tired after a late last night in Savusavu. We spent the day in Nadi - on the beach this time and saw a gorgeous sunset! Zoe and I walked to Nadi where we stopped at MaccyD's for an icecream and then went to a free wine tasting - a great rose, we both thought! On Saturday we took a watertaxi from the beach at Smuggler's to Beachcomber Island, which is THE party island. Quite expensive but so so so worth the money. Amazing buffet meals all inclded, lots to do in the day time - snorkelling around the island (takes about 25 minutes), mini golf, kayakking, volleyball plus extra actvities like parasailing and jetski. In the evening all the gladrags came out and the party atmosphere kicked in. It was a pretty chilled start but after the Fijian dancers and the Limbo challenge, the music picked up and Zoe and I tore up the sand dancefloor!
After that we headed down the southern coast of the main island - the Coral coast. Mango Bay resort was like summer camp for adults - lots of activities - volleyball, kayak relays, international crab racing anyone? (Scotland won). Uprising resort has the best free breakfast in Fiji which left us feeling pretty full for hours - all is good! Then Hamish headed west to Nadi and abroad while Zoe and I went east to Suva, the capital city which is rarely visited by tourists. We stayed in a big colonial house a little bit out of the centre and had a gret time wandering around. I think we're both city girls at heart and got completely rejuvenated by being in one! We filled our time with sampling lots of random foods - many of which feature kassava, shopping and going to the cinema. As it was so cheap we went twice - saw Shrek Forever After in 3D (awesome) and Eclipse (hilarious, but probably not for the right reasons!).
Now I'm back at Uprising on the beach for one more day before heading back to Nadi and travelling onwards to Melbourne for the next step of my adventure! Definitely a mixture of nerves and excitement, but on the whole very excited!
