Welcome one and all to Day 12. You guys know the drill. Make sure to check out what Maggie and Cheila answer for these challenges too!
Day 12 is about Places I Have Visited.
A lot of you may already know about all my travels, because it’s a big interest in my blog. So this post may link to a lot of older posts that will be able to tell you in more detail about these places.
It took me longer than I intended, but let me share with you all my wonderful trip (a.k.a. honeymoon) to Fiji with my brand new husband Rory!
As you’d know from Honeymooning Through Food, we stayed at Taveuni Island Resort. To travel there from New Zealand was a bit tricky however. We flew from Wellington to Nadi on Sunday afternoon (it takes around 3 and a half hours). Then we needed to take a connecting flight from Nadi to Taveuni. The timing of both flights always clashed. So we ended up having to stay the night in Nadi. This was on our first night in Fiji, and again on our last night as we ran into the same problem timetable wise.
For our one-night stay in Nadi, we booked with Aquarius on the Beach. This was a lovely hostel, only 15 minutes from the airport. They also offer to pick you up and drop you off to the airport (for only $14 FJD), so we thought it would be a good place to stay.
So for our honeymoon, we stayed at a luxury resort in Taveuni, Fiji. Taveuni Island Resort. As part of our stay here, we got fed amazing food. All three meals were catered to us, and they were huge. I’ll post later about our adventures at the resort, but the food alone deserves a post. Breakfast was five courses, lunch and dinner were both three courses. Breakfast is served with fresh muffins, a plate of fresh fruit, and an assortment of cereals on the table ready for you to choose. You can also choose from a selection of cooked breakfasts. Lunch and dinner all have a starter, main and dessert. They offer two choices for the mains for lunch and dinner and ask you to choose one during breakfast. I took pictures every day of what I was having. That’s what this post will be about.
Breakfast – Fresh Fruit, Muffins with Butter, Pancakes and a Mocha.
Lunch – Bean Salad (starter), Fish Wrap (main), and Fresh Fruit with Ice Cream (dessert)
Dinner – Pumpkin Soup with Fresh Rolls (starter), Pickled Pork with Roasted Vegetables (main), and Pineapple Meringue with Passionfruit Ice Cream (dessert).
We also got drinks on our first night. Rory had the Taveuni Special and I had a Long Island Tea. I liked Rory’s one better though as it was more fruity so we swapped!
