Bula from Fiji

View Oceania + SE Asia on lhuff35204's travel map.

Bula means welcome and hello in Fijian.
Flew an ATR 72 turboprop 3 hours to Nadi (pronounced Nandi) Fiji and are now in a hotel that Jan calls "the barracks" (it looks like an old army barracks or prison block) and it is backpacker central for Fiji with multiple 30 bed dorms, beach, pool, bar, 24 hour restaurant, and also our very spartan en-suite accommodation that includes wi-fi and electric. Nadi is the jump off point for the outer islands which I just booked at the tour desk. We'll be going to the Yasawa islands, about 3 hours east of here via fast catamaran boat, in a few days. In the mean time we'll be exploring the city, stocking up on supplies, and getting some rest. We had originally planned to stay on the Coral Coast of Fiji, but after looking at reviews it just didn't seem worth the isolation or cost. So we are 4 days here instead.
