BULA – The Fiji Welcome

Bula is Fijian for Hello and the staff at Outrigger resort have taken their Bula to a whole new level. Their welcome is just fantastic. Thursday we took a ride around the resort in one of the staff golf carts. Check out the Bula fun in this video. This is all completely unprompted.

Fiji – Highlights video

Here’s a video of the best bits from our first 3 days at Outrigger resort. Press play then click the settings wheel to change it to HD (720 or 1080)

After 4 days of good weather, the sun has now left us and we are in for rain until Sunday. Today will be 22 degrees and rainy all day. There’s a wet weather timetable but a rainy resort doesn’t work well.

Fiji – Day 1

Up at 6am Saturday morning and off to Melbourne airport. Breakfast at the airport, then a bus out to the plane. We’re off, good start. 5 hours later we land in Nadi. 25 degrees and a little humid. Then onto another bus for the 1 hour drive (on potholed roads) to our Outrigger resort. Mia & Will both nap on the bus as it’s been a long day. 2 hour time difference means it’s dark when we arrive. Some dinner (with Fijian singing) and then time to crash.

Sunday morning started sunny, then turned rainy. But it’s warm so we walked around in the rain and checked out the place. Our Bure is great, it’s in a private part of the resort but still close to everything. Nice breakfast, a walk on the beach (where the kids saw 3 bright blue starfish) then the kids want a swim. We go to the pool and 2 hours later, they come out of the water with purple lips. They’ve had great fun but the wind has made it a little cool. Couldn’t be better at this point…

Mia’s school award

Friday was the last day of term for Mia at school, and at assembly she received the terrific kid award. This is presented to only one child in each grade level and Mia was chosen from all the grade preps. She seems rather happy about it too🙂

1st Saints game

I took Mia & Will to see their first Saints game on Saturday afternoon. They had a fantastic time. They were very good, making it through the whole game. We had a few distractions, such as walking around the stadium to buy them a Saints flag and a walk up to the top deck to see the view from up high. For the record, they saw the Saints have a win over the Dockers. Thanks to my brother Al for providing the tickets.

Mia starts school – Day 1

This gorgeous photo below shows a happy & smiley Mia Jago, who was so excited about starting school today. The morning of day 1 went completely as planned. Mia’s alarm woke her on time, she ate breakfast, got dressed, packed her school bag and headed off to start grade prep. She said Good Morning to her teacher, promptly sat down (below) and was straight into her projects. A very exciting day ahead…
