There’s a lot to love about Fiji, says New Zealand High Commissioner to Fiji, Charlotte Darlow.

Ms Darlow arrived here last December with her husband and two children.

Just before her postings to Fiji, she was heading a Pacific regional division at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Wellington , New Zealand.

 

She has had postings in Geneva and Canberra, and spent a lot of time in New York, working in the areas of climate change and environment international security works.

While Ms Darlow visited Fiji on a few occasions, it was the first time for her husband and children.

“Fiji is the place I wanted to be posted to for several reasons,” she said.

 

“It’s geographically the heart of the Pacific.”

“It feels like the regional leadership place, because Fiji takes a strong role in helping to coordinate Pacific positions on the world stage, especially on climate change.”

“There’s a very strong social conscience in Fiji that is reflected in the way that the nation behaves internationally.”

What Is Your Favourite Place For Coffee/Pie?

Mana Coffee.

I am a Wellingtonian so I drink coffee. Mana Coffee is where I tend to go on my way to work every morning.

I’ve also been to Café Planet, in Korotogo.

One thing I am excited about is having a chance to explore traditional Fijian ground coffee at Café Planet.

What Is One Place In Fiji On Your Bucket List?

Yasawa’s and Lau are two places I am looking forward to travel to for a family holiday.

We are a family that likes to do things a little off the beaten track.

I also hear that Taveuni and Kadavu are good places to go.

We do lots of hiking, and we love mountains.

That is what we want to do here, maybe in Taveuni or Kadavu.
