    FIJI - Yanuca Island

    September 7, 2019 in Fiji ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Yanuca Island hielt für uns eine Bucht, die türkiser nicht sein könnte, mal wieder wunderbares Schnorcheln und ein romantisches Sunset Barbecue mit frischem Fisch in einer verlassenen Bucht als perfekten Abschied bereit. Am nächsten Morgen machte sich Käpt'n Balu dann auf die Weiterreise und ließ uns in der verlassenen Bucht mit einem weinenden und einem lachenden Auge zurück.

    Danke für die geniale Zeit an Bord mit euch!

    FIJI - Beqa Island

    September 4, 2019 in Fiji ⋅ 🌧 25 °C

    Nachdem wir in einer geschützten Lagune auf Beqa Island einen Sturm ausgesessen haben, konnten wir im Anschluss die schöne Unterwasserwelt, für die Beqa bekannt ist, erleben.
    Hierbei begegneten uns 2 Whitetip reef sharks, eine wunderschöne Korallenwelt und natürlich unendlich viele bunte Fische.
    Errungenschaften von der Insel waren diesmal einige Kokosnüsse und eine ganze Bananenstaude :-)

    Viti Levu Fijis Hauptinsel

    May 7, 2019 in Fiji ⋅ 🌧 26 °C

    Auf der großen Hauptinsel, die viel schöner ist als erwartet, geht's zur schönen Hütte mit eigenem Bad. 😁 Schaut mal. 😃👍

    Thai und Ivan führen das Haus und man merkt den chinesischen Stil überall.

    Sie haben sogar ein Tandem. 😄 Das muss getestet werden...

    Macht das Bock! 🤣 So ein Teil brauchen wir in Deutschland auch. Aber hier ist alles made in China. Es fällt fast auseinander, wenn man sich draufsetzt. 😄 P.S.: Liebe Grüße an Lena und Antonio! 😉

    Auch Tretboote stehen zur Verfügung, aber es regnet gerade oft und das Teil steht voll unter Wasser, daher kommen wir nicht in den Genuss.

    Aus der Toilette kommen auf einmal komische Geräusche... als wir den Deckel öffnen schaut uns doch echt eine fette Kröte an, die gerade ein entspanntes Wellnessbad nimmt. 😂 Gut das keiner dem Tierchen auf den Kopf gep... hat. 😄

    Schön ist, das es eine Waschmaschine gibt. So kann alles mal richtig durchgewaschen werden. 😊 Getrocknet wird an der Luft. Der chinesische Wäscheständer fällt schon fast auseinander als wir ein paar Teile draufhängen. 😅 Zudem hat er Billigrollen unten. Durch das feuchte Klima braucht die Wäsche sehr lange bis sie trocken ist. Nach zwei Tagen ist sie fast trocken. Es ist richtig windig. Da hören wir die Rollen vom Wäscheständer über den Boden kratzen und das ganze Teil klatscht samt Wäsche in den Pool. 🤣🤣🤣 Also rausfischen und nochmal von vorne. 😄

    Futtern viel leckeres Obst und Gemüse, was es an der Straße sehr günstig zu kaufen gab (als Beispiel drei leckere große Ananas für zwei Euro). Den Rest haben wir im Supermarkt bekommen. Man merkt das man wieder in der Zivilisation angekommen ist. Hier gibt es so ziemlich alles. 😊 Sogar einen Schafskäse haben wir gesehen und Joghurt! Der schmeckt allerdings üüüberhaupt nicht. 😂 Aber schön wieder selbst zu bestimmen wann man was ist. Auf den kleinen Inseln kann man nur Unterkünfte mit Essen zu festen Zeiten nehmen, da es ja nirgends was zu Essen, geschweige denn Restaurants gibt und das ist nicht immer so easy glutenfrei. Einen Abend gab's lecker Fisch mit Weizenmehlpanade und einmal Weizennudeln. 🙊 Naja Omelett geht immer. 😄

    Sad last day

    May 24, 2019 in Fiji ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    In the morning some of us walk to a nearby village to get last minute souvenirs. Steve hasn't been to a village except the one we walked through to get to the waterfall, now he feels like he's done everything.
    Around lunch time we leave and our locals sing us off, very sad actually.
    We were given a hibiscus flower, if you throw it in the water on your way out you are destined and welcome to come back again.
    After an hours boat ride we bus to Nadi airport via Sikatoga again. Our flight is delayed slightly as plane needs changing over.
    After a 4 1/2 hour plane trip we say goodbye to our fellow travellers until next year and pop over to the Airport hotel for the night.
    A very enjoyable week , not long enough

    Beqa Lagoon

    May 23, 2019 in Fiji ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Beqa Lagoon is a lovely resort with beautiful locals looking after us. "You are part of our family", we certainly felt that.
    Everything is "Bula" when you see them. Even in Suva the locals would call it out.
    Most of our group got pretty attached to 1 or 2 of our dive team or activity leaders. They knew their names but I never did, they all seemed to be called Joe!!
    I think they enjoyed us Aussie's as well. Our head dive master is actually an Australian.
    When we left Steve and Jimmy became Facebook friends with their special people. Jimmy is actually going to have a baby named after him!!!

    Aqua trek - Fiji Shark dive

    October 25, 2016 in Fiji ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Bula (Hello) friends!! Another adventure which I can't describe adequately. The french say "incroiable" which means unforgettable. The thrill, emotion and beauty that I experienced today left me teary and overwhelmed. It was one of the best days of my life if not the best. I am so blessed to share this with my "celebrity" rugby husband (Everyone young and old big and small wants take pictures with him - I believe they confuse him with the side angle of Francois Louw LOL)

    I remember what a panicky diver I used to be and now I jump into the middle of the ocean with these giant creatures without thinking about it. We saw white tip reef sharks, grey reef sharks, massive bullsharks and I loved the suckerfish. Oh and meeting nemo in the wild was magical.

    The Fiji 🇫🇯 Shark dive is definitely a must do! The very friendly dive crew have a passion for their environment and we learned so much from them & their culture whilst being on the boat.

    I am thankful that all our stars aligned so we experienced the Shark feed. Life works in incredible ways; We met Clay, a fabulous Kiwi guy, all thanks to Roedolf's beyond rugby t-shirt. He has been to Fiji many times before and knows the ropes so he sorted the dives for us, regardless of all the variables out of our control.

    The only thing that can make this better, is to be fortunate enough to have this all over again & visit beautiful Fiji again.

    Day 9 - Suva, Fiji

    April 30, 2017 in Fiji ⋅ 🌬 29 °C

    Today I woke up feeling great after a decent night's sleep and Mom and I took off for Uprising Beach Resort. I still managed to sleep the entire bus ride there and home despite a good nights sleep... Guess Asia has just made me used to it! I think I slept on every single travel vehicle we were on haha.

    Anyway, the bus ride was about an hour to the resort and we spent about 4 hours there. Compared to Mystery Island, the beach was underwhelming. The water was a murky colour and there was hardly any sea life to see below the water! It was a good place for swimming though I do have to say. And I stayed out in the water for about an hour straight just putsing around. I met up with Mary and Elizabeth while in the water and the three of us tried to discover marine life. We did see two fish between the three of us lol. But hey, now we can say that we've swam at a beach in Fiji! That's really all that we wanted to accomplish with the day. Especially because Suva itself isn't really a city that any of us wanted to spend any time in... It was nice to get away from there. I suppose we spent the night just so that the ship could restock as we now have 7 or 8 straight days of sailing ahead of us. Anyway, we had lunch at the resort and I sat by the pool afterwards reading my book and enjoying a local beer. I will say one thing about Fiji, the people are insanely kind and some of the nicest people I've met! They definitely go out of your way to remember your name and be kind to you. Something to be said about that :)

    We hopped back on the bus back to the cruise ship and made it back just in time for last call before they were set to sail away. I hopped in the shower before going up to the pool deck to see the sun set and there I ran into Joel. We had a couple drinks before I set off to find Mom. Mom and I had dinner in the dining room again. We had the same table again and the waiters are getting to know us pretty well haha. I don't even have to ask for my after dinner espresso anymore, he just brings it to me ;)

    After dinner Mom and I decided to go see the Accountant, playing in the theatre. Joel met up with us for that as well. It was a pretty great movie! All about a man with Aspergers who did the books for a a few criminal organizations and got into some trouble. An action movie, well researched, well done. I enjoyed it!

    After the movie Mom wanted to go to bed so Joel and I went to the bar next to the theatre and grabbed a drink. We then went to head up to the night club, Dizzy's, but got distracted at the Casino Bar chatting to Paul, an older gentleman that I've met on a number of previous occasions; he sure loves to drink haha. So we missed Dizzy's after losing track of time. We were going to head up to play another game of basketball but instead stood out on the balcony watching the water go by for a bit. It was a nice and relaxing way to end the evening instead of getting my adrenaline completely going by jumping around and what not. A very nice, low key evening, and I'm sure I'll sleep well tonight because I wasn't at the nightclub drinking to excess! Loving this trip.

    Day 2 diving

    May 20, 2019 in Fiji ⋅ 🌬 26 °C

    Today we didn't take photos as I forgot to charge one camera and think I drowned the other :(
    Again we had 2 dives in the morning. Jimmy and Ed didn't join us as they were too hungover. Adrian and Will came but was a tad seedy !
    In the evening we were treated to the Beqa Island Firewalkers and serenaded at tea by the locals

    I join the girls and see Suva

    May 21, 2019 in Fiji ⋅ 🌧 24 °C

    There are 3 wives of divers who don't dive. They do other things.
    Today on offer is a day trip to Suva so I forgo the diving and have a day with the girls and our lovely guide, Joseph.
    We do a sight see of Suva then some free time. I go see the food market and then find a building where locals have stalls and sell supposedly handmade souvenirs. I buy a few, much cheaper than in the shops.Read more
