Photographer's Note

Bula and Welcome!

Bula! It's a word you hear many times a day in Fiji. It means "hello" and is pronounced either 'boola' or 'mboola'. Either way, it's always pronounced with a smile.

Fiji is the land of broad smiles, flashing white teeth, gentle relaxation and absolutely no stress. From the mainland island of Viti Levu to the islands you won't be able to escape the friendliness of the people or the sheer natural beauty - swaying palms and warm, clear water.

Fiji is an interesting blend of Melanesian, Polynesian, Micronesian, Indian, Chinese and European influences. For nearly 50 years, until the military coup of 1987, the indigenous people of Fiji represented an ethnic minority in their own land.

Here we are leaving the port of Denarau, heading out to Mana Island where had had an amazing week’s holiday.
