Hope you are all doing well, has been a bit of a traumatic journey
to get here, but we made it. Think door to door it took roughly 40
odd hours which is a record journey, but probably not the longest one
we will be taking considering we will be on the road for 15 months.

After driving through the rain in London, we had two twelve hour flights, and one three hour one, with the delights of US customs in between. The last leg was definitely the most interesting though - 3 hours on a Fijian express bus from Nadi to the Coral Coast. At least there was something to see out the window!

Adrian also had a problem with his luggage, in that it did not show
up. Lucky someone from the airport drove over at 2am to drop it off,
but not knowing where the owner was sleeping decided to hoot his horn
for about half an hour to wake everyone up.

Anyway, the Beachouse is cool and chilled, although it is opposite a
lovely palm fringe beach, behind it is the Fiji version of the M11.

Looking forward to some Island life now.

PS - The Fijians are incredibly musically talented, and seem keen to demonstrate it at every available opportunity, as we discovered when we first arrived. They were there when we left too.
