So my next destination is Fiji. It’s very exotic and different. The flight process was somewhat extensive though. On August 1st I left from Wellington on Air New Zealand flight 466, departing at 3:00p.m. and stopping in Auckland at 4:00p.m. for a total flight time of one hour. Then there was an hour and twenty minute layover until my next flight. Then at 5:20 p.m. I departed on Air Pacific flight 410. Then at 8:25p.m. I had finally arrived in Nadi, Fiji. Making the total flight time five hours and twenty five minutes. This trip cost me $378.00 Canadian.
Now as soon as I decided to go to Fiji I knew that it would be completely different from every other place I had been, especially because there are so many islands. So when I landed I found a tour guide that I made sure was certified and owned a boat and a car to get me to all the places I wanted to go. But before all the plans could begin I needed to find a hotel to check into. I chose Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa because it looked great and because it was my last stop before heading home I wanted to enjoy myself. My stay in Fiji was based on sightseeing and relaxing. I had to go see the Garden of the Sleeping Giant, which is the most beautiful garden I had ever seen, containing flowers so rare and beautiful that I hadn’t heard of them beforehand. I also wanted to get a better grip on the people who live there all the time and I visited Navala Village, my guide told me that it was the most “picturesque” village. They had actual huts, seeing all this was so cool. I spent the last two days there relaxing at the hotel that had an amazing beach attached to and occasionally doing a bit more sightseeing.
