Go to places where you can drink the tap water

 

Taveuni!! Where the tap water tastes like Fiji Water😂

Taveuni is the garden island, and I’m in love with it.

The plane ride was not for the weak-hearted. But it was really cool to see the views from the lower altitude.

Shaky landing and everything

I’m staying at a place called Maravu Lodge, just up the hill from the beach.

As I’m checking in, I get an ominous warning about the falling coconuts. Him: “Beware of the falling coconuts.” Me: “What am I supposed to do to avoid them?” Him: “Just beware.” Me: “Gee, thanks.”

falling coconuts ain’t no joke

this is how far they drop, before they land on your head

Have you ever been asked: ‘What was your best day ever?’ This morning, on my walk, was one of my best days ever. I felt sheer joy because of the amazing beauty around me. I went about 5 miles down the road from the hotel, through a few little villages, along the ocean.

I also met a boy named Zachary, a Fijian Catholic who was eternally late for church. He wanted to pose with Flat Stanley:) He also busted open some kind of fruit, and I ate the seed inside (I made him eat one first, so I could assure myself that it wouldn’t be poisonous😏). I gave him a sucker for his troubles. The people here are amazingly friendly.

I checked out this Meat Bird place, and when I got to the house, no one was home. HOW’S A GIRL SUPPOSED TO GET HER MEAT BIRDS IF Y’ALL AREN’T HOME???????

The other, other, other white meat??

  1. You’re so funny. Should have made him eat two seeds. He does this all the time! You’re not use to it, he is! LOL! STOP CARD for the coconut tree!!!

  2. Love the Paradise found facial expression. From the photos and description of the place I can see the experience there is sinking deep inside.
