|just found out we're going to FIJI!!!!|
We hopped on the Air Pacific flight from Sydney to Fiji. The best part about flying internationally is they give you booze for free. Free wine, free beer, free bourbon. You name it, they give it to you. We each enjoyed some Fiji beer & wine on our 4 hour hop, skip, & a jump to the island. Arriving in Nadi (greeted with a Fijian lieu) past dinner time, we did what most normal honeymooners do: ask our driver to stop at McD's for a hamburger or three. Don't worry, we treated the guy to a #2 much to his delight. Fulfilled and ready to hit the hay after the
|going to Nadi...|
|Yes take me to Fiji ;)|
|nothing like a serenade greeting!|
The buggie (golf cart) kindly toured us around the grounds making its way to our beachfront bure. One of only 6 that rest on the beach. Outside we were treated to a porch bench and hammock, two layout chairs on our grassy lawn, a hammock in our yard, two beach chairs on our sandy beach, and the sounds of waves whispering sweet dreams. Inside we were spoiled with butler service, a bottle of champagne, two newlywed suras, and the most intimate sleeping space. Literally felt like we were on a totally new vaca. Goodnight Fiji, I cannot wait to see you in the day.

Awake around 11am because I am allowed to sleep until whenever I want here without feeling guilty. Open the curtains. Breathtaking. Bula sunshine, clear ocean water, sandy beach, and nothing to do but love life.
|pay no attention to my foggy camera lens|
After picking my jaw up from the floor and contemplating cheating on Ryan with the beach and the Pacific, we enjoyed lunch poolside. Next up was the beach. Complete with the good luck specialty cocktail. Yea I am a sucker for a good special especially one with a little umbrella garnish.
|could seriously live here for ever...|
|so happy in Fiji!|
|toes in the sand|
|good luck please|
Promptly at 5pm our butler Miri greeted us from our hammock nap with champagne and appetizers. Talk about romantic. Hammock, champagne, apps. Fellas, take notes on the way to a woman's heart. All cleaned up and ready for dinner, we hit the Sundowner which is a cute little spot on the beach overlooking the water and ideal for sunset watching.

To shed those pounds, we strolled along the beach for a few after dinner before heading back to our bure for
