Onwards to Samoa!

After waking up and having breakfast we packed up and left Lellevia on a tiny little boat to the mainland. It was supposed to take just 40 minutes but instead took 1.5 hours, luckily Neil had his sun-cream close to hand or we would’ve all baked in the sun as the boat wasn’t undercover. The...

Stupid friggin' chainsaws

Before booking to stay here on Lellevia Island we had been warned that they were doing “a little bit of construction work”. But nothing was mentioned about being awoken at 8am by a chainsaw being started right outside our room and continuing all day until after the sun had set. We were not...

To another remote island in Fiji

We left Bobo’s once again, and we will really miss Bobo and Karin. They are great hosts and we really fell in love with the place. We walked down to the village with Bobo just as the boat from Lellevia was just coming in to meet us. On the way we caught a few squalls and it was like icy...

Local buses and rugby games

We awoke early today to get some brekkie before heading off with Bobo, to Levuka, to show Neil around and watch the local rugby. We took the local bus/truck which was packed! After 1 hour of bumpy roads, and with numb arses, we made it to Levuka. We went down to the cessation stones,...

Levoni Hike

After a stormy night we knew our trip to Levoni was going to be slippery but we hadn’t expected it to be quite as tough as it was. To set the scene, we were hiking from Bobo’s, on the coast, to the centre of the island before finally arriving in Levoni, a village which sits inside a crater of...

Waterslides

We had a nice chill day at Bobo’s today. I wasn’t feeling too great today having come down with another cold and feeling dizzy, so decided to relax for the day before our hike to Levoni tomorrow. Chris and Neil went on the farm tour again as Neil didn’t go before and Chris...

Back to Bobo's!

We awoke reasonably early this morning so we could check out of our nice hotel and head downtown to do some internet work, booking flights etc. before getting tickets and heading back over to Ovalau. We took the nice bus and Ferry as before and as we were going straight to Bobo’s, got off at...

Just the 3 of us

We moved hotels to the South Seas that was half the price of the Best Western, if a bit basic, but still a really nice building and the staff were super-friendly. We then went for a walk around Suva and I tried and failed to buy some new tops as all of mine are falling apart due to being...

Returning to gorgeous Fiji!

Woke up, packed, showered and checked out before spending the morning yet again chatting to fellow travellers and sorting a few things on a horribly slow internet connection. Then Peter came and picked us up along with a few others and drove us to the airport to go on a small plane to Suva,...

Something smells very fishy...

Alarm went off at 4:30am this morning. There should only be one 4:30 in the day and definitely not the am one. We then quickly finished packing, got dressed and went outside to wait for our taxi. We had booked it for 4:50am and by 5:10am it was clear that he was a no-show. What a bummer. No...
