Fiji Day 3: Vinaka! Secluded meals, Horseback riding, Cave explorations, and Kava!

Hi Love Bugs,

Sean and I highly recommend a trip to Fiji! We wish we didn’t have to leave because we’re having a total blast. Honestly, we have had so much fun together. Our days have been full of exploring, relaxation and laughter. Today was absolutely wonderful. The Namale team set us up with 2 Private meals, and they were just to die for! We had breakfast on their “Lover’s Deck” looking over the ocean by the jacuzzi, and then dinner in a romantic cave. They decorated an oceanside cave with at least 100 tea lights so it was glimmering in the moonlight beautifully. In between meals, we went horseback riding on the beach and around the property. We also walked on reefs and explored the caves finding any and all hermit crabs we could find. After dinner, Sean became the “Bametti” in the Kava Ceremony. ┬áThe “Bametti” mixes the kava in a huge bowl, and has the honor of handing it out. We spent the rest of the night hanging out with the workers (local Fijians) drinking Kava. I have some great videos of it that I will share once we get back to the states!

We had the most wonderful private breakfast. Here is the picture of the setup! Love my Seansy.

Fiji Day 1: BULA! We have made it to paradise!

Hi Love Bugs,

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):
