What are your hobbies?

How many places in Fiji have you been to?
I have been to only a few places around the country but do plan on visiting other places in time.

 

What is the one spot in Fiji you would take every visitor to, and why?
Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park.

It’s naturally beautiful and the environment is really peaceful.

What is your favourite place in Fiji for a pie/coffee?
Hot Bread Kitchen.

The environment in warm and welcoming, especially the branch at the University of the South Pacific, Laucala campus.

It has a refreshing environment as well as great cream buns.

I have also created many memories with friends there which I like to reminisce every now and then.

Hot Bread Kitchen is known for its variety of sweet and savoury pies.

What is your favourite secret backyard spot, and why?
It would be anywhere close to nature, especially the seaside.

Suva Point or Nasese foreshore are surely two great spots for me.

What is the one spot in Fiji on the top of your bucket list, and why?
It would have to be the Kula WILD Adventure Park in Korotogo and the rest of the Western division.

It is away from the hustle and bustle of the city and gives you a chance to reconnect with nature, while at the same time offering some fun activities.

As for the Western division as a whole, again, it reconnects you with nature.

On a drive, you’re likely to see a cow or a horse grazing on a hill which we don’t get to see in Suva.

The lush vegetation and plantations also are indicative of the fertile, and productive soils which is pleasing to see.
