    We went for 10 days but ended up staying 17!
    Lovely beaches, a little too hot for me but kids loved it.

    But the best part was the friendliness of the locals, not
    experienced such warmth since Greek island-hopping in my youth.

    Any opinions?


    edit: weather still pretty dull for time of year on South Island 😢

    If anyone needs servants and are going to Fiji, just give me a ring.

    FYI: I don't eat much, I'm clean shaven, and I have all my teeth.

    Ok, Ok, so I like to eat. Big deal. But that is no reason to judge me damn it!!!

    Oh, and I'm swell company to be around also.

    We paid just under NZ$9,000 initially for the four of us.
    (Kids were "free" )
    The extension was virtually nothing as the hotel was under-booked
    and they wanted us there! Just an admin fee for the change of flights.

    A LOT cheaper than holidaying there from Europe!
    Fiji sounds exotic but it is quite a common holiday destination from NZ.

    5 now ....

    I'm surprised that anyone should thumb-up or thumb-down such
    an innocuous opening post that expresses the opinion that Fijians
    are warm and friendly and invites opinions from others.
