... a pretty special feeling.
Our journey started with a 10.5 hour commercial flight, then a 1.5 hour puddle jumper. From there we were picked up in a minivan corroded by the ocean sea, it had seen better days. On the advice of my sister, who lived in Fiji three years ago with the Peace Corps, we asked our driver to stop at the store so we could pick up a case of beer. The island we were headed to was rustic, which meant, no beer. So we ...

It was nice to see this little ...
We left Savusavu after 10-days of readjusting ourselves to being on dry land in a new country. We began our exploration of the north eastern corner of Vanua Levu, Fiji. The first day was a short passage to Fawn Harbor, where we stopped for the night, then up to Viani Bay.
