      I went to that WOOFing farm and everything changed. I couldn’t have found a better first host. The Armstrongs. It was just what I needed. I worked a few hours a day and in turn they fed me amazing food, showed me amazing places, and ...

      Meanwhile back at the hotel, we needed to pack for our flight to Fiji. We had a 3:00 AM wake up call scheduled as we needed to be ...

      So, as usual, our journey has already had it's drama.
