“The friendliness of the Fijian people and the culture stand out above all the countries I have visited throughout my life. The fun and infectious smiles of the Fijian’s is a pleasure to travel amongst and experience,” she said.

She added she looks forward to visiting again later in the year.

“Fiji being the Hub of the Pacific I have to fly through your islands with Fiji Airways again!”
