What Is One Place In Fiji You Would Take Friends To?
Upper Navua River, Namosi.

You can either go river tubing or white water rafting.

The scenery is breathtaking and you will leave the spot feeling rejuvenated and absolutely blissful.

Namosi is paradise.

What Are Some Of Your Favourite Spots For A Coffee Or Pie?
The Galley, Royal Suva Yacht Club, Walu Bay.

It serves fresh coffee and a range of pastries.

It is a peaceful place for a bite.

When I’m in the North, breakfast at Copra Shed, in Savusavu, is a must.

 

What Is Your Favourite Backyard Spot?
Nukuwatu, my hometown beach.

It may not be the best in the world, but it sure does the trick for self-care and reflection.

 

An island in the Lau group.

What Is One Place In Fiji On Your Bucket List, And Why?
Lau group of islands has been on my mind for the longest time.

The pristine blue lagoon, the lobster breakfast, and the handicraft, are just a few of many reasons behind the decision.
