Fiji

June 7, 2009

Day 55

Back to traveling again. Unfortunately, we have to spend the next two days on a plane. We flew from Louisville to Chicago to L.A. today, and then boarded a plane for Fiji.

Day 56

Actually, there was no Day 56. We crossed the International Date line while flying from L.A. to Fiji. Left on a Tuesday and arrived on a Thursday.

Day 57

Arrived in Nadi this morning. Our hotel provided a free shuttle service from the airport which we took advantage of.  Our hotel is right on the beach and has a nice swimming pool and bar. We spent today lying on the beach outside of our hotel. We also booked a day trip out to one of the surrounding islands for tomorrow. Fiji is really just a stop-over for us on the way to New Zealand, so we’re only here a couple of days.

Day 58

We booked a day trip to the South Sea Island. The trip includes snorkeling, a BBQ lunch, and…..free drinks. Normally, I’m not one to take advantage of a situation such as this, but today we decided to go ahead and indulge. Plus, Lori’s knee was still not up to par so we really couldn’t do that much anyways.

The island was so small, that we could see water on all sides of us most of the time. This video does  360 degrees from the center of the island. Wait for the local wildlife to show up around 0:18:

Quick! Get this guy a tan before somebody goes blind!
