OVALAU - Levuka on this island, was fijis original capital before it changed to suva. Here we stayed a night, then went to the northern tip of the island to a ‘resort’ that connects to a village. It was run by an adorable family who totally welcomed us. We had a lot of great laughs with them. Luke went fishing and caught us a delicious lunch. After this we went to stay with a man named Bobo… who is married to a german lady.. and they own a really really nice house (fiji standards) in the bush. They had another house just beside it, wehere we stayed. The garden surrounding it was beautiful. He took us for walks to the beach, snorkeling (stunning! I saw a white and black ocean snake and a sting ray among other fish of course) and to a natural river pool. It had rained lots so the trails were unbelievably muddy. We had quite the hard time getting around in half a foot of mud. 

After this place, we went to yet another small island just of Ovalau.. Caqalai. It was a resort run by Methodists, and was a tad run-down. Food was great, and so was the beach, but either than that, not fantastic. We were charge 20$ to go to the next island over, Leluvia ,that’s litteraly a few hundred meters over. We were pissed, but at least Here it was stunning. The resort was just recently re done. The bathrooms were by far the best ive seen in fiji. They even had beachchairs!!! And the weather was amazing. We went snorkeling, and kayaking and just hung out on the beach. It was great. There were only 3 of us tourist on it (this island is tini although the resort holds lots of ppl) us, and a 72 year old grandpa Freddie.  We played Fijian card games with him at night.. he was sweet, but hard to understand (german who lives in Aus). We worked on our tans lots, but somehow were not get satisfied.. only a few days left to finish up. Today we arrived back to the mainland, and are staying on the ‘coral coast’ that doesn’t have much coral (??) and are slowly coming to the end of our trip.
