me think of the Haka and fierce warriors, beautiful countryside and stunning vistas. It also conjures up images of sheep, snow and rain as opposed to sunshine, beaches and tropical warm waters ideal for someone who is adverse to being A Bit Nippy to learn to scuba dive in.
So I went to Fiji for 11 days.
After one night in Nadi I was picked up by a taxi driver called Andy who would be driving me to the boat that'd take me to the island. Its a two and a half hour drive, most of which I slept for, waking up at intervals to find I was leaning as far to the right as my seat belt would allow because it doesn't matter where you sit, there's something about sleeping whilst sitting up that causes you to gravitate towards the person sitting closest to you with you tongue hanging out and drool trickling down your chin in search of a stranger's shoulder. The shoulder of your partner or best friend will do if there's no one else but if there's someone you've never met in your life then that's where the drool wants to be and will defy physics to get there.
I digress. *wipes chops*
After the drive and a 15 minute boat ride I checked into McDonalds, introduced myself to Mark and Margaret who were also staying there, got a beer and as I sat down the heavens opened with that kind of warm, torrential rain you only find in the tropics.
