Discover remoteness and the “Survivor” island in Fiji

This Pacific island is a favourite haunt of Australians and New Zealanders alike.  It’s close to home, but rather exotic and intriguing too.  Used as a base for a television series of Survivor shows just how isolated it can be.

  • Sample the traditional brew of kava, a tree root extract mixed with water.  It looked like puddle water served

    It tastes as bad as it looks…

    in a coconut shell, and didn’t taste much better.  Effects are a numb and tingly feeling in your mouth, with a hangover not worthy.

  • Swim in the tepid ocean and keep your eyes peeled for sea snakes.  These waters are the world’s most densely populated when it comes to these creatures, although they are unable to open their jaws wide enough to bite you.  Reassuring?  No, not really!
