“Let’s go on an adventure!”
Funny story. On this day we walked out to our rental car to head out for a day of shopping and our car battery was dead. While we waited for the guy to come back with jumper cables I asked Brandon to snap some pics of me. LOL. Thank goodness he loves me!
DAY FOUR: A DAY OF SUN AND SHOPPING
After we soaked up the sun as much as we (Brandon) could handle for the day we headed to Suva, the capital, to have lunch and do some shopping! Suva was about 2 hours from Pacific Harbor so along the way we drove by more sweet villages, schools and all the friendly locals strutting along Queens road waving hello!
We ran into someone who told us he was the City Councilman. He took us around to different “must see” shops. Basically, like a personal shopper, haha! He let us know what shops put the money back into the villages so that was nice to know and gave us another reason to want to shop. Although, let’s be real I don’t need another reason 🙂
DAY FIVE: DENARAU ISLAND ON A GLASS BOTTOM BOAT
The day my dreams of snorkeling in crystal clear water came true! Seriously, the water was so clear it was almost like you could drink it. Don’t worry, I didn’t. We rode with our church fam to Denarau Marina where a Hydroplane boat awaited us. The boat we took was a one of a kind design with a unique hyrdofoil system that literally makes the boat fly on the water surface. Not to mention the neat glass bottom design that allowed us to view sea life during the day and also the night on the way back to Vita Levu. If you are interested in booking this for your next vacay you can read more here.
On the boat ride we got to enjoy the amazing view that consisted of other islands (include Castaway Island), beautiful waters and some other “boats” that kind of made me want to live a yacht life!
Once we got to the private island we enjoyed lunch with a sweet couple from Kentucky (also from our breathen) and then snorkeled the afternoon away with our Fijian family.
Okay, now go back to the close up of the water. I told you it was drinkable 🙂
I think it is safe to say that after day five my feelings about wanting to relocate to Fiji were stronger than ever! I loved every minute we were there and I remembering how much as I write here 🙂 Thanks for letting me sharing these beautiful days with you! More to come!
