    ... then had a little chat with me about my accent, my travel plans and life in general. For no reason other than to pass the time of day. Please can I stress: this was a teenage boy, in a part-time job, at a supermarket, making polite chit chat.

    ... 15 so we just chilled in the waiting room, then when it was time to board the boat we went and sat upstairs... It was very windy and the boat seemed to jump over the waves which was strange!! When we finally arrived in magnetic island we had to get another bus to the hostel, the hostel seems quite nice.. Everyone keeps ranting about how good it is but it has nothing on Fiji!!
