What is one place in Fiji you would take visitors to, and why?

Savusavu.

It sums up what Fiji is all about, with the sun, the sea, and the peace of mind that comes with it.

What is your favourite spot for a coffee/pie, and why?

Snowy House, Midcity, Suva.

It’s right in the middle of the city, with a high standard of hygiene, great coffee, and tasty savouries.

What is your favourite backyard spot, and why?

Anyone that knows me well, knows I love sports.

I enjoy walking along the Nasese seawall. The fresh breeze helps.

What is one place in Fiji on your bucket list, and why?

Taveuni.

I’ve heard so much about the place, and I’d like to explore the legendary waterfalls on the island.
