We're on the island of Nacula, in the northwest area of the outer islands of Fiji. We'll be here for a week, finding out what it's like to live on a small Fijian island, with a small village and our backpacker resort.

DH has been napping for at least an hour and a half. And he had a burger and fries for lunch. (Oh, excuse me, make that a double quarter pounder with cheese. Box said 750 calories. Just for the burger. Doesn't include the fries.) He had di... Read more
It was a hot and humid day. DH and I went out for a walk, but our 35 or so minutes were enough. We came back to our B&B, and turned on the AC and fan.

The camper van we've rented is pretty high off the ground - I can manage to climb into the cab section when we're parked next to a curb (or kerb, in Aussie).
But when I'm climbing in from the ground up, well, I'm a bit short to get in eas... Read more
