Fiji has long been a favourite destination of ours for relaxing holidays.
On our first visit in the mid 1990s we fell in love with the happy, relaxed. smiling Fijian people and their wonderful greeting – Bula!
Since that first visit when we went to Beachcomber Island off the western coast of Viti Levu and the Warwick resort on the Coral Coat, we have been back three more times – to island hop in the Yasawa Islands; to the Naviti Resort; and just three weeks ago – back to the Warwick.
This most recent trip to the Warwick Resort was a “blob-out, relax and do nothing” holiday.
We did however take the local bus service into Suva one day, and into Nadi on another.
Both Suva and Nadi are well worth a visit – if only to see the hustle and bustle side of Fiji. Tourist-oriented shops and stalls abound – many with postcards of Fiji, faded and discoloured, which I’m sure were on the shelves when we were last there.
Here then are some of our (deliberately aged) postcards from Fiji for you to enjoy.
