Round 2 Begins

Sat at Nadi airport

rain 27 °C

Well the second round begins now.

Looks like we are leaving Fiji at the right time.. there has been torrential rain all morning. add to that a brush with a very nice bank manager and a taxi ride that shook my stomach up then its perhaps a good job we are heading to civilisation again.

Fiji overall has been exacltly what we were looking for.. a relaxing break, with a bit of paece and quiet. We have taken great pleasure in doing nothing for the past few days except sleeping, eating, reading and laying in the sun and cloud!

Now though the REAL adventure starts. Aukland becons and the delights of spending a month couped up in a van with Andrew's feet... er... well... we are looking forward to it any way.

Hopefully we will be able to keep this blog more uptodate once we are in the land of the long white cloud. Thats assuming we travel anywhere near an internet kiosk.

As the Fijian goodbye band... same guys who were hear at 4 am to say Bula to us... are begining to drive me mad then we will sign off and go and find a plane to take us away from this dampness... feels just like home... but warmer!

We are here in Fiji !!!

Arrived finally in Fiji on Saturday morning at 4am... The flight was long but good.. No delays and we even managed to get through the US with out any trouble.. And yes we saw someone famous...if you call an E list celeb famous..

When we arrived the sun was starting to rise and after a hour wait for our transfer to the hotel it had started to rain...What was going on...it's not Wales the sun should be shining!!

The weather has got better, though still a bit overcast....

Our bungalow is very nice... sort of simple, but with a fantastic view of the ocean. We can here the waves crashing on the coral reef just off shore. We are close to the pool and have birds waking us up in the morning. The complex is quite quiet but there are more travellers arriving daily. We have sampled some of the local cuisine and the local fiji beer. I am happy to re[port that it meets Andrew's very discernable palate.

We have been to look round a local Eco park and today is shopping day. Time is up so will post more later.

The Countdown Has started!

( & that's not the Channel 4 programme!)


Last customers in, only one more breakfast to cook, 3 days to go or 92 hours according to Andrew... Just testing our travel journal, so you can all see what we are up to! "What is that Andrew?" sorry 91 hours 45mins and 10 seconds...
