BULA everyone! Welcome to Fiji! Well its alot hotter here than in New Zealand thats for sure, but i must say, we are still missing Queenstown!! Weve both managed to get our tans back which is the best news and have enjoyed the past week on Mana Island, which is nothing short of gorgeous! After an hour boat ride to the Island, we settled in to our tent! (which was half the price and double the room of a dorm, ha, suckers!) and spent pretty much the next 6 days on the beach with four girls that were in the tent next to us. We spent a few hours walking around the Island, finding sea snakes and star fish! Also playing football with the locals and American Football on the beach!
All our food was provided in the price which consisted of spag bol, steaks and currys! Brilliant! Oh, and banana cake in the morning, which is now officially Andy and my favourite cake! The nights generally consisted of the locals staring in Fijian/Island/Pacific Nights which were really good but all consisted of the same dances but just different costumes! Also Andy, Esme, Lile, Beth, Luce and I engaged in mammoth card sessions during the evening which acually lasted hours! A great way to pass the time when there was no goon available, just expensive, imported beer!
The weather was excellent everyday except for one where it rained all day! Tradegy! Not to frett, as we spent the day reading, catching up on the old diaries and sewing Canadian badges onto our bags as a tribute to the great Patrick, stupid Carcone, and all the other fantastic Canadians we have met on this trip!
Oh and there are lots of mozzies here! I have 13 bites on 1 side of my foot and i wouldnt like to see what it would look like without mozzie repellant on! Not to worry though as im leaving for LA tomorrow! Andy is staying in Fiji for another 10 days and is meeting 2 girls that we met in New Zealand and also Dan. Then he is off to California for 5 weeks to explore and meet with his family! I on the other hand am meeting Matthew Shipley in LA where we will be celebrating Independance Day together and doing the usual LA stuff such as shopping and maybe checking out famous peoples houses! oh dear me.
It will be a very sad moment tomorrow when J and A on Tour will officially end but thats the way the cookie crumbles unfortunately! Andy is due home on September 3rd and im home on the 11th July to earn money and get ready for uni. Wow, thats only a week away, scary!! Anyway, you will hear from us soon, we hope you have enjoyed the travelpods we have made and hopefully have encouraged people to do a bit of travelling themselves. If not, then just try some goon, its the same.
For the last time - Jack and Andrew xxxxxx
