Fiji: Viti Levu

It has been difficult getting back into “reality” after 2 weeks of sunkisses, snorkelling, playing in waterfalls and sipping cocktails at the pool bar. Fiji was amazing! I feel like I’ve seen ever inch of the country at a nice relaxing pace. The people are extremely friendly and we met many great locals and tourists.

Here are some photos from Viti Levu (main island) and Denarau Island (where all the resorts are):

Torches lit at 6pm every night at The Radisson Resort

Lobster at Cross restaurant at The Radisson

My favourite flower at the Garden of the Sleeping Giant: Ballerina Orchid

Kula Eco Park; after this photo I also had an iguana on my head, touched a baby boa & fed turtles

Sigatoka Sandunes

Horseriding along Natadola beach

Crab at Bohai Restaurant – the locals highly recommended this place

Cute Fijian children- their mother made them stand together for the photo, hehe

Kava ceremony with the chief of a village near the Navua river. Kava is the “booze” for Fijians. Totally different effects to alcohol; makes your mouth go numb afterwards and excess will cause a smile on your face and sleep.

Beautiful scenery of Navua river

White water kayaking- warming up

Jumping into the waterfall for a swim after a long day of whitewater kayaking

Happy Hour at the Radisson pool bar :D
