Bula friends and family,
                This past week has been our free travel! As a group we found a great local hostel in Coral Coast right on the beach.  The hospitality and smiles of the Fijian people has welcomed us into their lives.  The hostel offered many activities to choose when and what we wanted to do.  We took advantage of the day trip to islands where we got to snorkel in the stunning ocean water.  As well as other activities that include shark snorkeling otherwise known as snarkiling, kayaking, paddle boarding, volleyball, and enjoying the beauty of the laid back Fijian lifestyle and landscape. 
                We are off to Suva today where we plan to continue our journey.  Ahead of us is a rugby game, the city, and a national park where we will be hiking and enjoying the natural swimming pools.  We have all been grateful to have the opportunity to guide ourselves through a week in a beautiful and do things we have dreamed of doing. 
                Fiji is treating us well and our excitement for our village home stay for our village home stay continues to grow.  We miss everyone back home but as they say here, Sota Tale, see you soon.
Maggie and Jess
