Honeymooning in Fiji

Honeymooning in Fiji

**Guys! We still have no Wi-Fi and it is a pain trying to get it sorted. So here’s an old post about somewhere I would love to teleport back to right now. FIJI! Rereading this cheered up my day, so I hope it cheers your day up too!**

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.

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!

Honeymooning Through Food

Honeymooning Through Food

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.

Monday

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!

Update on Us

Hey all! Hope you enjoyed the previous recap of my Peru adventures! It was definitely a Trip of a Lifetime, and I’d love to do one again (when I have money for it 😛 )

Speaking of a “trip of a liftetime”, on March 25, Rory and I tied the knot. We had good Fortune in that the rain held off on the day. Sure it spat a little, but it wasn’t the downpour that the weather had been threatening! It was an amazing day.  Anyway, I’m probably going to do write a long blog post babbling about everything and everyone. We took a lot of photos, professional, on cameras, phones, and on my little instax camera! Our guest book is filled with little photos and notes from everyone. I’ll save all the details for a later, crazy long post. Here’s a sneaky few shots from our day though 😀
