Fiji!




I'm gonna try to blog again!!! Here are a few photos from our first month here in Fiji! This first one is kinda funny... it's where Stuart would have been going to school if things had gone as planned...



We spent our first few days in Suva looking for housing and checking thing out. We would jump on the bus and go into town or over to USP to get some stuff done. The buses are pretty awesome! Nice and open... they blast the music, unfortunately its the super irritating stuff (and the same 5 songs).




The beautiful beaches of FIJI:

Pretty stinky actually.... I don't know if Suva has any pretty beaches, I didn't see any. But this is where we would have lived.



This is the guard in front of the President's House. They're not supposed to talk or smile or anything... but we got him to talk... just barely, and through closed lips hahah! Stuart was speaking Fijian and he said it freaked him out! Ha!



Thats our green bus we always took to get back to where we were staying:



Me on the sea wall at Suva Harbor... there's actually a pretty fun wave out there that would have been our home break... but Tavarua/Namotu waves are better :) And there's way more options! Plus it's FREE! Can't beat that!


Hare Krishna Ice cream!



One day we went up to see Stuart old Mission President who is now the temple president... Jolly little couple!

Here's the Suva Temple! Beautiful... this shot was taken by the Security guard we were hanging out with while waiting for the Woolley's to come home.





Here we are on our way to our very first surf in Fiji!



Stuart waxing up his new board for the first time!



We had to go out from the Resort Waidroka (a beautiful spot) but it was pretty pricey)


Since it was our first time out, neither one of us wanted to play photographer so this was the only shot we got .


We moved out of Suva while we were trying to figure out what we were going to do and landed in Pacific Harbour. In a place called Arts Village. We had a cute little flat there.


It had the best pool ever that we would go play in every day! Tiki Pool Bar!








No one else was ever there so we had the place to ourselves... yeah thats a slide coming out of the Tiki man's head :)




I've never tried to post a video on here so we'll see how this goes :)

This was the view from our window!


We loved our little place in Arts Village while we were there but we were ready to leave when we did. And we're loving our new home in the West! The West is Best!!!


Hopefully I'll post more soon!!!

Great pics! Fiji is one of those amazing yet sad places- I remember the waterfront in Suva being SO dirty! It's such a small world too when Nielsh and I moved up north we were in the same stake as the Woolley's when they got called back to Fiji.

Keep posting pics- it's so great to see!

Yea! I love that you are blogging again. I know it takes more time than a FaceBook post - but so much more satisfying to read. Loved all the pictures of places and things I didn't get to see of your early days in Fiji. This will be a better journal for you, too.

YAY! So glad you're back to blogging- for some reason it seems more personal or more insightful than Facebook. :)
