I planned to write this post a while back but frankly, Disney got in the way! However, I still want to write this for the reference of any future volunteers. If you’re waiting to start your Think Pacific project, or are thinking about taking part - http://www.thinkpacific.com - then this post will hopefully give you… Continue reading To bring or not to bring? – from a Think Pacific Volunteer.
If you’d asked me a couple days into Fijian life if I thought I’d ever miss a compost toilet, I probably would have laughed in your face. And though yes, I have been enjoying the novelty of a clean, flushing toilet, I am missing village life so much that even the compost toilet is included… Continue reading Missing Village Life
Our last, but definitely not least, stop on this wild summer adventure was Tokyo! And our 6 days there were just as weird, wild and wonderful as the city itself! With Japan being one of the countries I have been dying to visit for a LONG time, I was beside myself with the idea that… Continue reading A Tremendous Time in Tokyo
Our 5th and 6th stops on this trip were Shanghai and Seoul and they really were unlike anywhere else! With just 5 days spanning our time in both China and South Korea, we didn’t have long to explore these cities, but what we did get a chance to see was an amazing experience that has… Continue reading Popping into Shanghai and Seoul.
*Excuse the lateness of this post - by the time I got round to trying to upload it I was in China, meaning I couldn’t access the internet properly. Anyway, here it is! Better late than never... enjoy! My travels so far have whizzed by in a flash and Sydney was no exception. I’ve been… Continue reading A brief summary of a brief trip to Sydney.
My last week in Niubasaga Village, Moturiki island is now over. Yesterday we left the village and, honestly, I wasn’t ready to leave! The final week on project was the craziest and the quickest - if you can believe that’s even possible after the insane few weeks I’ve had! Things were shaken up a lot… Continue reading The Final Week in Niubasaga
Bula Vinaka, My second week in the village is drawing to a close and it’s been absolutely incredible this week - we’ve seen and done so much and it’s completely set us aside from any other Think Pacific project even more than we already were! As you know, Monday started off with a hospital visit… Continue reading Week 2 in Niubasaga
Bula! I finally found some internet so here is a summary of my first week living/working in a Fijian village: I cannot believe I’ve been in the village a whole week. It feels like a completely different planet. It’s been an insane experience already - I say as I’m sat on a hospital bed on… Continue reading Week 1 in Niubasaga
I’m in Fiji. It seems weird to say that. It’s been so long coming and I’m finally, actually here. It definitely feels strange. The first two nights at the beach hostel near Nadi airport (Bamboo Beach) were pretty relaxed. We got to meet our team for our Think Pacific project who are all so lovely.… Continue reading I can’t believe I’m actually here…
