Fiji... Here we come!
The long awaited Fiji holiday is just around the corner and the level of trepidation in the household has quadrupled. The pet-sitter has touched base with us, hubby is nearly finished with his workload, the house is nearly guest-worthy, and all that needed booking is booked. I just need to psyche myself up for the three and a half hour flight to this tropical island paradise. The Fijian archipelago is massive! It comprises over 300 islands of different sizes. We will be staying at the largest one (Viti Levu) in a spot called Denarau Island. What many people don't know about the Fijian islands is that the movie "Castaway" with Tom Hanks was filmed on one of its tiny inhabited islands (Monuriki). Alone, away from civilization... *SIGH*... Our dream... So close, and yet so far! ;D
