Where I stayed
We watched an amazing sunset and decided to head to the airport. It was a little on the early side but I like to get there early and get through customs and security and relax on the other side of TSA. We dropped off the rental car and made it to the ticketing counter almost 4 hours early
Air Pacific has not handled this situation very well. There was supposed to be a representative at our Hotel to give us some information. That never happened. We called the airline (in Fiji) and they said they did not have the information and to check the website or call the local office. We called the local office and they did not answer. We checked the website and it said the plane was leaving at 8am. So Eric and I took the shuttle back to the airport to talk to the ticketing agents. They confirmed 6pm. By now it was midnight and we are exhausted.
Our friend Lesley flew from Sydney today to meet us in Fiji and is probably already there. I have emailed her several times explaining the situation but she is not very good about checking in. Hopefully she will log on when she realizes we are very late. We have a 2 bedroom bure at a beach resort in Nadi that is non-refundable
What a mess. I am amazed that as much traveling as we do we are hardly ever delayed. I can't remember the last time one of us was more than an hour late and now this. After all the planning and anticipation of this trip this is the time we are delayed? We are all a little bummed and annoyed but handling it well. Hopefully next time I write I will be doing it from a tropical beach.
