On the way to Paradise


One of the things we were looking forward to about flying to Vanua Levu, Fiji’s 2nd largest island, is the one hour flight over coral reef to get there.  Technically it wasn’t the smallest plane we have been in (that was the Stewart Island plane), but we only had 3 passengers both of us and a local guy, and the other couple of seats were taken up by our luggage.  The journey began in typical Fijian fashion, our connecting flight to Savusavu was meant to leave Nadi at 3pm, but we soon realised we were on Fiji time when it left at 4.30…. that wasn’t classed as a delay and the airport staff knew our names and were quite happy about the whole thing.  And that’s pretty much how out trip would continue, very laid back, nothing is on time, but everyone is really happy and all of the waiting is done with a big Fijian smile.
