Holiday destinations do not get much more paradisaical than Fiji however, it is perhaps the country’s warmth – both climatically and through the Fijian population – that factors most in ones enjoyment of the country.
Having had the opportunity to spend some time in Fiji recently exploring the main island, Viti Levu, alongside a few of the Mamanuca Islands, one is truly refreshed by a holiday devoid of modern necessities (apart from Bushmills Irish Whiskey!) in favour of mother nature.

Our highlight? A magnificent river tour which began by meeting the local village chief, continued upstream passing a plantation nursery and seven man-made bridges, resulted in a ten metre waterfall jump into an ice-cold mini river pool and culminated in dinner at the home of our tour guide, on the floor! Fiji – truly refreshing!
