If you follow me online, you know by now, thanks to my endless uploads, that I just got back from the most magical vacation in Fiji. At first, I did not want to post a ton of pics to the @organicbunny page, because it’s not directly “Organic” related, but the more time I spent in Fiji, the more I realized it really is such an Organic place, in so many ways! From growing their own fresh fruits and veggies to never using any hormones or antibiotics in their meats, Fiji is an amazing place I really hope you all can visit some day! Many of you also mentioned that you did want to learn more about my trip, as it really is the most perfect place for a honeymoon, special occasion or just your next exotic getaway! Instead of breaking my trip up day by day, I will break this blog up by activities, that way you can pick and choose which parts appeal to you.
Travelling to the Island of Vanua Levu, Fiji-
There are many places to visit when traveling to Fiji, however, we called the town of Savusavu “home” for this trip, which is located on the island of Vanua Levu, Fiji. Getting to Savusavu was probably the hardest part, as there are no direct flights to this island. We took the train from San Diego to LA, which always works out nice, no traffic and relaxing on the train beats a car ride and $30 daily airport parking any day. Once we arrived to LA, the train station has a bus that takes you directly to LAX airport for under $20 bucks. We finally arrived to LAX, where our 9:30 pm red-eye flight awaited.
The flight was 11 hours straight to Nadi, Fiji and then from there you take a 1-hour small commuter flight to Savusavu. The 11-hour flight was rough, as you are not really comfy at any point, however, we made it work because we had to. I packed a ton of snacks as Fiji Air’s food is not edible, so, I ate those and half slept/half watched movies the entire time. They do have a nice entertainment system that plays current movies, TV and music so at least we had that. They also have plugs on the plane, which I did not know or else I would have surely brought my work laptop to pass some time!
