Fiji was just awesome. Tom and I took an island hopping ferry around a group of islands called the Yasawas. Stepping off the plane was like stepping into an oven. We were greeted with guitar playing, floral shirts and beaming smiles - the mood was set. The first island we visited was Nanuya lai lai, a 4hr ferry journey from the mainland. To get from the ferry to the island we had to board a tiny fishing boat as the waters around the island are very shallow in places, with reef.
The family showed us to our accommodation. The resort was right on the beach. We had a beautiful tiny thatched Bure (house) all to ourselves. It had a sand floor, fresh flowers and a hanging bed - which was lush although both Tom and I were feeling a bit sea sick by the morning!!
