Coral Coast - Fiji, Pacific Ocean! I was fortunate enough to have a good excuse to go to Fiji - a wedding! :) Well, I was fortunate enough to go as a child but that was about 25 years ago... I guess not much has changed. A few new resorts (a la Intercontinental on the AMAZING Natadoli Beach) but for the most part, things are about 50 years behind the rest of us, and that's how I like it. The people don't get much friendlier as you hear their "BULA!'s" from a mile away, and you can pretty much see their smiles from a mile away too! The economy has been hit hard lately... with the drop of tourism in the global recession, so buy "Fiji water" as much as you can. Monsoons have also cancelled flights lately and had their capital, Nadi, underwater, with roads blocked across much of the island. Seems as though I continue to visit places that are taking a wrath from Mother Nature. From the pristine azure waters to the dense tropical forests, across the islands, Fiji is amazing and I can't wait to get back there soon. Always happy to travel to do wedding photography there - I can recommend a few great places! :) xx
