In my lifetime, I have been to 24 states, and 15 countries, and Fiji is by far one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen!
It was an experience unlike any other, obviously, because it made it onto my Top Ten Places to Travel list! So here I have for you, my top things to do in Fiji!
Sure when you think of Fiji you think of white sandy beaches, clear blue water, and basically paradise (we will get to that later!). But that is not how most Fijians live, believe it or not, Fiji is actually a third world country!
When I was in Fiji, me and my friends stayed in a little church in the middle of nowhere. During the day, we rode around in the back of a little pickup truck, visiting the locals, and experiencing their culture! This is how you truly experience a country! Through the eyes, customs, traditions, and lives of the locals!
Buses, boats, vans, the back of a pickup truck! Either way, getting from point a to point b is never dull in Fiji!
The city is a great place to experience the local markets, shops, restaurants, we even found a karaoke night club!
Making your way to the top of a mountain (whether it's by walking or driving), is one of the most worthwhile things you will do while in Fiji.
Ask the locals about a good mountain, or just find one yourself!
While I was in Fiji, one of the guys at the church braided my hair, and a wonderful woman gave me her sari!
You never know what you will see, who you will meet, or what kind of adventures you will come across when you are walking through the mountains and villages of Fiji!
Now this is what most people think of when they think of Fiji!
The South Pacific Nation of Fiji is made up of 322 islands! We found one of the smallest, and most touristy ones to take a day trip to!
That was one of the coolest things I have ever done! Even though it was 9 years ago, I still remember it perfectly! I was out in the middle of the ocean, zipping around on a water ski, when all of a sudden I looked down, and I could see straight down into the crystal clear water! I saw coral, and rocks, and fish! It was just plain magic!
When you find yourself planning a trip to Fiji, don't forget these tips!
