A Hawaiian gree sea turtle investigates his reflection in my dome port.

Bula! (means hello, welcome, love, happiness, it means life, a blessing of health and wellness and much more)

I had to post this picture of this beautiful sea turtle.  I love sea turtles.  My mom has a bunch of nice stories about her and sea turtles when she was a little girl in Fiji with her dad.  I will share that another day with you.

Now that the weather is warm and it’s time for school vacation.  What better place to take the little ones or just yourself and have a bunch of fun.  Traveling is so easy when you don’t have to lift a finger to make it fun and just enjoy the natural beauties on earth.

Fiji is truly a tropical paradise.  A place that was once not even known to foreigners, has now become one of the worlds most travelled destinations.  Enjoy the sun, beaches, food, clean and fresh air and most of all the friendly natives that will always make you feel welcome.

Yes, Fiji is home to the native Fijians and the Indians as well.  The British brought Indians there from India to help work the sugar cane fields and gold mines.   That’s how Grandpa got there when he was only 15 years old.  He was originally from Punjab, India.   The the British used to rule everything and always taking Indians here and there to help develop countries.   This has now become not only home to the Fijians but also the Indian-Fijians too.  Don’t get me wrong, when the British first brought the Indians over Fijians were not happy and there was fighting just like any other country.  Today, they all live together in peace and harmony and have become one community.   See what your missing here.

Beautiful Fiji

 

Be greeted with a special welcoming song “Bula Maleya” and enjoy the rich, clean and friendly environment.  For me, I love to travel and I feel Fiji has some of the friendliest and happiest people on earth.  You wouldn’t realize it’s the 21st century when you arrive in some of the villages.  You will see many people still living in grass huts and reading by candle or a campfire light.  In some homes if you have a flush toilet it’s considered fancy.  Haa Haa and your moving up in the world.  Yet, Fijians are happy with the simple things in life and I guess that’s why they are one of the most friendliest people on earth.

I hope you all learned a lot on this post.  It was really fun writing this and teaching you just a little something about an island so far away in the South Pacific.

Please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know what else you would like to see.  I thank the youtube makers of these 2 videos and thank you for letting me share them on my blog.

Bula,
