Last full day in Paradise

After been woken by torrential rain at 4am we managed to sleep a little longer before rising for breakfast. The sun had managed to break through the clouds that seemed now to be dispersing to reveal the blue sky beyond. Yesterday was also our wedding anniversary, 28 years and still happy so it was always going to be a quiet relaxed day. We picked out our sun lounger by the pool and settled in, our main task for the day was chatting with fellow paradise lovers as they passed, this was interspersed with the occasional dip in the pool to cool down. The afternoon consisted of a short power nap before a full body massage, yes I can hear readers thinking how difficult our day was! The evening was a traditional Meke night, beginning with traditional songs and dance, before we too were invited to get up and join in the dance before the buffet dinner commenced. We were presented with a bottle of bubbles for our anniversary form management and staff as we sat among friends to eat and be merry. After dinner we were surrounded by the beautiful staff team and serenaded, presented with cake on a plate iced with congratulations on, it was truly a magical night. We sat on the Kava mat listening to the beautiful voices of the band, partaking of course in a Kava. Our night finished sat by the bar chatting, today we have to pack to leave, to return home, hopefully the peace and tranquility that is Fiji is deep within us to sustain us for our days back at home, until we return.


About revthreads

I originally decided to get a blog because I think any adventure, travel experience should be journaled and then thought it's good to share. Some things may be interesting to others and other things not so much but sharing is good! I love to travel, I don't get to do as much as I would like, ultimately it would be my dream to just pack up, head off and keep going for as long as possible seeing and experiencing new things, meeting new and interesting people. Like a lot of people I have family and work commitments that keep me grounded, but I am fortunate enough to have a fair few opportunities to head out and live life to the full.
