Its been agess since i last wrote on here and think its a bout time i told you what alice and i have been up to over the last 2 weeks as have been out of contact for a bit!! so will start with FIJI!
BULA (fijian greeting, they say it all the time no joke),
Fiji was amazing, we arrived on sat 8th may, pretty early and was soo hot already! we stayed at Aquerious hostel for a couple of nights on the mainland before going off on our island hopping on the monday! First impressions of fiji were of how different it was to lively LA, and at first wasnt too sure about how quiet it was! was overcast as well so didnt look so picture perfect as expected! Didnt really do too much the days we were there, we went to a Fijian fire show on sun evening and joined in with their dancing which was a bit of a laugh.....hayley you would have loved it, with all those fijian men in their grass skirts, haha! we then went over to the drift inn bar where we met Lewis and matt...2 of the D(avid)A(my)R(achel)K(atie) S(ofie)L(ewis)A(lice)M(att) J(ack)E(mma)T(om)'s, who we travelled with for the rest of fiji! ......
Island hopping was sooo much better than the mainland, we went to coral view first, an island at the top of the Yasawa's which we stayed 2 nights at! while we were there, we trekked to the top of the island, seeing some amazing views...probs not the best idea to do it in flip flops though, was pretty difficult walking bk down and we ended up falling over a few times!lol...we also went Kayaking over to the blue lagoon which was fun! we then went on to white sandy beach...was really traditional there unlike the previous place which was more like a resort. The accomodation wasnt too gd, was in a tiny 10 bed dorm ...with crotcroaches, and ants all over the bathroom floor lol! but had a gd atmosphere...with fijian dancing in the eve and a camp fire! we went to Kuata next for 2 nights which has to be my fave island! had a really nice beach, was tradtional and also there was lots of things to do! we got upgraded to the honeymoon bure on our first night cause thr was ants all over my bed lol, which wasnt too bad! we stayed in a dorm the second night though, with lizards on the ceiling and huge crotcroaches in the bathroom, guess thats just fiji for you lol !!! we went fishing in the evening we got there as a group and i actually caught a fish, which is pretty gd for my first time fishing and funny that only the girls managed to catch them, bad luck boys!!!haha! dont no if alice enjoyed it as much though...with her feeling sea sick most of the way! anyway....we also did jewellry making, played volley ball (well attempted), went snorkelling on the reefs to see some small sharks which was ace and we climbed the big rock of the coast to watch the sunrise...well sort off watched it, pretty difficult wen its cloudy lol! we spend our second to last night at Beach comber, the party island, wasnt as wild as we expected it to be but was a gd night and the food was soo nice compared to the other islands! had to leave the majority of our group sunday to go bk to nadi for the night so we could catch our flight early monday morning. Was weird being bk in a bit of civilisation, but nice to have a hot shower , confy bed and a decent meal lol!we left fiji monday morning with amy, dave and tom, who we met in LA and had been travelling in the dark slam jet gang in fiji with us!
So in Auckand atm, been here since monday and were leaving to go on the kiwi experience tomarrow! pretty differnt here...colder...and looks like england! not too much to do either! Were bk on our own again now, as the others left tuesday morning, :( ...alice had to bungee jump to get over the pain...i didnt lol, but mainly cause i was too scared just having to wlk up Auckland bridge to watch lol! im sure we will make new friends on the kiwi experience though ( well if we possibly can without dave here) so will update you in a few days with what were getting up to! were just having a bit of a lazy day today, might be going on a Auckland Bar Crawl tonite, which will be gd fun!
So untill then TTFN! lots of love katie xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
