A lack of wifi on the islands prevented us from posting any entries, so this one will cover the last 7 nights on the Yasawa islands. Our first 3 nights were on the island of Nacula, staying at blue lagoon resort. After a 5 hour rainy boat transfer from the mainland, we arrived to see the skies start to clear, bringing out the turquoise sea. Just in time for lunch, we were surprised to see the grand selection available to us, cassava chips are the don. Unfortunately the rain continued in ...
... 3pm so I hung around them. It was so hot that time flew as we chatted and turned into prunes.
When Stu got back, we retreated to the room as the sun was too hot to bear. We were both sporting tomato red skin too, having reapplied sunscreen numerous times but to no avail.

... side of the island. The bus had to wait 1 hour before it headed off, so I jumped off to pop to the loo, when I returned I bumped into Mohammed again, and he told me that he had been on the bus and had given Alex a 'Banana Package' for us. So, so kind, he had run over to the market to buy us a bag of bananas for our journey . . . so generous . . very humbling! We then had the most epic bus journey we have probably ever been on. We went high up the mountains until we could ...
