Just a few Fiji facts:

Fiji is made up of 333 islands that rest in the South Pacific.

Capital is Suva.

Languages spoken are English, Fijian and Hindi.

Currency is the Fijian dollar.

The main island is Vita Levu which is where the capital, Suva, is located and where our unforgettable vacation took place.

We left Houston Friday evening with a 3 hour flight to LAX. Once we got to LAX we hopped off of Southwest, claimed our baggage and checked into Fiji Airways. It took us a little over 12 hours to get from LA to Nadi.

Once we arrived in Fiji we picked up our rental car and headed to Pacific Harbor where our resort was located. It was about a 2 1/2 hour drive from the airport. The drive was full of the most beautiful greenery and so many sweet little villages every few miles. Not to mention you are riding along the coast where the ocean hues go from dark blue to turquoise to crystal clear. I love when you can see all of the different colors sitting side by side. It always amazes me.

We stopped at a sweet souvenier/gas station on the way to the resort and when we pulled up one of the employees came out and opened the car door for me. All I was thinking is that Chevron really needs to step it up!:) We purchased a few gifts for family and friends here.  They also had a little coffee shop in the store so I ordered an ice coffee. As I was watching them make it I noticed them putting scoops of ice cream in it and I knew right then and there that Fiji is exactly where I was meant to be! 🙂 Needless to say that was not the last ice coffee I drank in Fiji!

After that little shopping and coffee stop we continued on our way. We ended up getting to The Pearl hours before check in, but they were super friendly and able to accommodate us and get us checked in early. They probably took one look at us and realized we needed some rest because after 15 hours of flight time I do not “wake up like this!” LOL.

After checking in we walked around taking in all of the beauty, had lunch and then unpacked for our 8 days in paradise. That evening we were able to to attend a “meet and greet” with our local Fijian church members along with a Pastor from New Zealand. They were all so extremely nice and it immediately felt like a family gathering.

Brandon and I have been very blessed to have been able to travel to quite a few places in our short marriage and I think we both agree that this has been the best trip we have been on yet! I have so many pictures and details I want to share with you all so I am breaking this trip up into a few separate posts! I hope you have enjoyed seeing our Day 1 pictures!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Happy weekend beauties!

Vinaka! {thank you}
