Snapshots from Fiji

< Bula, Fiji!! >

As you might have guessed after reading this post, I recently enjoyed some tropical island time in... Fiji!  Earlier this year the hubs surprised me with the plans for this trip, and while I may have experienced a certain amount of uncertainty prior to this trip (mainly due to the lack of information communicated by the organization that planned this trip), our time on this island was absolutely wonderful.  The views were incredible, the weather treated us well, our villa at the resort was lovely, and the conversations flowed freely with fellow travelers and resort staff alike.  While the main purpose of this trip we joined was to scuba dive, my main goal was to relax in the tropical surroundings.  All in all it was a week of new adventures, relaxation, greeting tropical fish up close and personal, and forming new friendships.  Thanks for all the memories, Fiji, and soto tale!

PS- You can see some of my other travel adventures from this year here and here.  What an amazing year of trips this has been so far!
