Let me just say that the humidity, island heat and constant salty water I found myself swimming in contributed to the birds nest bun I had sitting at the bottom of my head everyday. Apologies but I mean, what else was I to do?
I've never really been much of person who enjoyed boats, I always thought that if I spent more than twenty minutes in one I might just get a little sea sick but good old Susan proved me wrong. We had the best time. The ride was so peaceful giving us time to reflect as we watched the world slowly drift by the further we travelled. We got the opportunity to learn about how the land is being treated and the way in which the early settlers in Fiji used to travel down the Navua River in order to get to the main city for food and resources. We became well educated - as we should have, I mean we were on a school trip after all.
After our boat ride they put us all onto a couple of rafts that reflected the boats the settlers used to use for travelling as seen below:
Thats how I ended up jumping in fully clothed in the Navua River.
