Today's header picture alone is enough to brighten up my day.
Do you know exactly where Fiji is located? Well, it's in the South Pacific Ocean, about 3 hours flying time north of New Zealand. And, about 5 hours flying time south of Hawaii.
Fiji and the rest of the world.
A closer look at the islands themselves.
When I first think about Fiji, I think about spending time lazing about doing nothing but reading a book and staring at the beautiful scenery, But in actual fact there are a lot of things to do in Fiji that would keep us busy for at least a month!
Hiking of course would be on our agenda, but many of the roads are also suitable for biking. Don't forget though that there are almost a million people living on these islands, so you still have to be on the lookout for traffic!
Fiji has fantastic year round weather, although there is a slight possibility of South Pacific hurricane season that runs from November through April.
Fiji sounds like it might be an expensive place to visit, but in actual fact it's only expensive to get to. Once you're there, it's easy to find inexpensive local accommodation. Airfares are fairly high though. Normal round trip fares from Los Angeles run around the $1,200 per person mark but if you're patient and you wait for the right fare you should be able to find a deal at around $800 per person.
Today's header picture makes me want to fly there now!
Fiji is a popular honeymoon destination, and it's easy to see why. And it's easy to why tourism is the number one driver of the economy there. It looks simply beautiful.
I've now got Fiji on our list for cheap airfare deals. I'd love to spend a month exploring the islands!
