It’s one thing to be assigned to a flight packed full of noisy tourists, but it’s another when their crying children tagged along.



Amidst the chaos right before taking off from Melbourne airport, I cringed in my seat. Images of a public Spanish coast haunted me throughout my flight, and the moment I sat foot in Nadi, these fears materialized.



 

After 10 months in Australia, I’d rewarded myself with a well-deserved break in Fiji. And my first priority was to find a haven of peace and tranquility amongst the beautiful white sand beaches and seabed.



So before arriving at Sevu’s hostel, I went through Mantaray Island and snorkeled with the majestic manta rays, in between relaxation and diving.

Did you know...

- Fijians are very friendly and hospitable people. There was a time in the past, though, when Fijians practiced cannibalism as part of a war tradition.

- The Queen of England has the title of Paramount Chief of the Great Council of Chiefs of Fiji. Her image is included in colorful banknotes and coins in the country.

- If you intend to visit the local villages, you should remember that only the chiefs of these villages are allowed to wear hats and sunglasses.

- Fiji is located right on the International Date Line. In Taveuni, there is a spot where you can stand with one foot in the current date and your other foot in the previous date.

Sevu 

 

I stayed for 4 days in the "Bay of Plenty" hostel in the islands of Yasawas seeking calm and encounters with locals. The owner of this establishment was a pretty interesting character, with traits close to some patterns typically found in a European profile.
