Naviti – queen for one day

Posted by admin On August - 3 - 2006

After lunch I left to Naviti just for one night because I hoped to go diving the next day at ‘Mantaray Resort’ at another ‘Reef Safari’ dive shop. At the moment is mantaray season and I hope to see at least one ray. When I arrived at ‘Coconut Bay Resort’ first I was quite irritated because I was the only guest who arrived today. Imagine about 15 Fijian just dance and sing for me! Later at dinner time they introduce me to the other guests and danced again. And at night they ask me if I would like to join them because they made a bonfire just for me. Felt like a queen for one day. Also met the israelian gang again. Hope I will get some photos of them because did no photos at Naviti.

The Blue Lagoon at Nanuya Lailai

Posted by admin On August - 2 - 2006

Today morning I went diving at the Blue Lagoon. The dive site was called ‘Tom’s Tumb’. I’ve heard that in this area are many dead corals and it is not worth to dive there. But I really wanted to know if that is true. And yes, it was. Its was too expensive (F$ 100 for one dive) and you will see less things alive and a big graveyard for corals, everything gray and demolished. But in 18m dept I found the most beautiful Kauri shell ever. After being back for lunch I produced a coconut bracelet. The Israelis left to Naviti where I want to go the next day for going diving at the ‘Manta Ray Resort’. I phoned immediately with ‘Coconut Bay Resort’ and there were still beds available (funny: two days ago they say it was booked out). In the afternoon I went with Lisa from California to the Blue Lagoon for snorkeling. In the evening I had some Kava and played some games. Could only take a few pictures since I only had some left on my quick snap cam… Too bad my SLR had dropped into the water and didn’t work…

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.

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…

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

Harriet’s birthday

Nananu-I-Ra – Daydream island

Posted by admin On July - 10 - 2006

About 8:30am the shuttle from Nananu Lodge picked us up for bringing us to this perfect island. The trip took us four hours, but on the way we stopped at ATM and in Rakiraki for food shopping. The last 15min we took a boat to the island. And it is a beautiful island, for me it was the first tropical island in my life. I was not surprised when Glenn the manager of Nananu Lodge welcomed us and told us Nananu-I-Ra means Daydream island. It was much better than I ever expected… The dive sites around belong to the 10 best in the world after Jaques Michel Cousteau. And he must know. He bought the island next to Nananu-I-Ra. I got a beautiful room at the Coconut Lodge and my bed got ocean view. A big plus in Nananu is as well that you have the opportunity to cook, also you can have the meal package. In the afternoon went to the beach and relax. For watching the perfect sunset everyday you can go on the little next to the resort. Once a week is happy hour at the sunset bure on the top of the hill.

Fijian BBQ

Posted by admin On July - 9 - 2006

Slept only about four hours because somebody was snorring in the dorm. Sunday morning I watched the worldcup game Germany against Portugal about the third place. Met Scott (Scottland) and some others watching the game. Germany played well and won. At least the third at the worldcup. Well done. In Fiji you cant expect anything on sunday. Nothing goes – its Fiji time. So we hang out at the pool and I met Matt, Nathan, Simon, Jenny, Zoe, Emma, Daniel, Lindsey, Foxy and Megan… I had a chat with them and they asked if I wanna join them at there trip to Nananu-I-Ra. Its a quit unknown but very beautiful island. I really liked the idea but normally had other plans for Fiji. I wanted to see the ‘Blue Lagoon’ and do the shark feeding in Pacific Harbour. And first of all I wanted to learn diving, doing the Open-Water-Course. After phoning at Nananu-I-Ra we find out that everything there is much nicer and cheaper. So I changed my plans and decided to go with the others the next day. Later on I went to the beach for collecting shells and met again Bins who invites me spontaniously to an authentic fijian BBQ. Before I asked them If they can prepare me a coconut because never had fresh coconut juice. The coconut was delicious and I learned that there are three types of coconuts. Some are for juice (yellow), others for eating or cooking (brown, green). Also I tried sugar cain – very sweet. The BBQ was with original fijian potatos. That are roots which the fijian peel and cook. They taste after potato but are more dry.

Preparing the coconut…

Thats Fiji potatoes…

View to the highlands of the the main island Viti Levu with sugar cain fields…
