Our Fijian Honeymoon

We had an AMAZING time.

We spent our first week on the main island, Viti Levu, down on the Coral Coast. Snorkelling, scuba diving, foraging for hermit crabs, drinking cocktails, cheering on cane toad races….you know, all the stereotypical islandy stuff!

We travelled up one of the inland rivers on a long boat to visit a traditional village and primary school where we took part in a kava ceremony and had a lovo (Fijian earthern oven) lunch.

We also went on a rainforest hike to some volcanic hot springs. It was a beautiful walk and, let’s just say, interesting experience – unbeknown to us, the road to the start of the hike was a muddy 4×4 goat track navigated in a dodgy old ute with us in the back on makeshift timber stools being advised to “just hold on to whatever is available”, getting bounced around like popping corn then ending up bogged in the mud!

He, he, it makes for a good story though.

Our last few days were spent on one of the islands in the Malolo Lailai group.

It was beautiful and relaxing….my favourite part of the holiday. Snorkelling (again), bike riding, sunset gazing, basket weaving, drinking cocktails (again!).

The view from our room was so gorgeous.

Okay, so that’s enough of the non-housey, non-decory stuff. I’ll be posting a few new furniture makeovers in the next couple of days – promise!
