I am watching the sunrise over the water as I type this. Our trip to SavuSavu, Fiji was quite the adventure. Our initial flight leaving Sydney was delayed 2 hours leaving us praying we wouldn’t miss our connection in Nadi. Fijians are so unbelievably nice and helpful. If it weren’t for the gracious staff at the Nadi airport, we would have missed the last flight. They held the plane for us and a family of 3 for 45 minutes! Can you believe that? That would never happen in the US. After we got to Nadi, we figured out exactly WHY they waited….it is quite funny because we made up nearly half the plane (Scroll down to see pictures). The flight from Nadi to SavuSavu was absolutely beautiful–the mountains, the reefs, the vibrant colors of the ocean. It was picturesque to say the least. Once we arrived to Namale, we truly found our hidden paradise. The resort is amazing, and the people are even more wonderful. We settled into our “burre,” tried Kava, and had a delicious dinner! This place is truly great.
Some pictures of our flight into SavuSavu (the reefs from above were just unbelievably gorgeous):
Below are pictures from our beautiful Siga (Sunshine) Burre:
We love Fiji! We can’t say enough. I will be back again and again and again! It is only 4 hours farther than Hawaii…that isn’t horrible right? Talk to you soon, Love bugs! I hope you enjoyed our first evening in Fiji.
