I arrived in Figi a few days ago–July 2, 2012. Linda whom I sat beside on the plane was also on the boat that took us to our Figian Islands. She and her friend Michela, were on the Island beside mine, so we were on the boat together. I have pictures. They also helped me sort out the problem with me credit card and the no roaming on my i-phone because my camera is not working.
I spent the next two days on Barefoot Island. I had no internet there; however, they helped me find and locate my luggage that did not arrive with me. I now have my luggage and I met up with LInda and Michela again on the boat travelling north.
I am now at Nabua Lodge up where the movie the Blue Lagoon was filmed. They are at the resort 30 minutes away,. I will leave from here on Friday night and stay on the main land before heading to New Zealand on Saturday.
Again my credit card did not work at Barefoo, so I need to settle up with them at the boat launch on Friday. I will be putting in an e-mail to my bank after this. Despite all this the food has been good and they have catered to my needs and the sleeping arrangements are good. The weather and scenary are beautiful.
I have seen many different colours of coral, fish, a small shark and a few dolphins. The mantarays were not swimming by on either day I was at Barefo
