From Sydney we flew to Fiji. Right from the airplane, we took a bus to Sigatoka where we were staying for 2 nights. We got in late afternoon and took a walk on the beach.
The next hostel we stayed at was a step up, but did not have the awesome family like the first place. We mostly just hung out on the beach, swimming and laying in hammocks.
Although we had planned to leave that afternoon, the airlines had a different plan in mind. We were delayed 8 hours, so they put us all up in a nice hotel. Ready to go the next day, they were 100 seats overbooked, so we volunteered to get bumped for compensation. They put us up in an amazing resorts- probably the nicest place I have and will ever stay in. With each having our own rooms and free food and drinks, we were living the life.
36 hours later, I am home! Although I miss New Zealand like crazy, I am SO happy to finally be home!!
