From Rio we jetted down to Foz de Iguazu for the famous Iguazu Falls. Exploring the Argentinian and Brazilian side we were lucky with great weather and greet views. There were so many rainbows! Though even with great weather the waterfall splash back/ taking a boat ride under a waterfall mean things get pretty wet and I hate to think how many smartphones are destroyed … Continue reading Falling for Iguazu
I’ve been so slack with this blog that Google doesn’t even remember the domain! There’s lots of reasons for it. I don’t have quite the same sense of adventure here, a big part of that is probably down to language barriers, another is that I’m going through weird guilt trips about being paid so feel I should work all the time (this is all in … Continue reading Noumea Highlights
Before I arrived in Noumea I met an Australian who used to live here tell me that you didn’t need to speak French…. she lied. I had another tell me that you could get away without it but you would be lost and confused a lot of the time, that was a lot more accurate.

My last Fiji post is by far the hardest post I’ve had to make. In the words of Dr T “It’s time to sing isa lei, say moce to Fiji then start a new challenge”. It’s difficult to sum up the last few months in Fiji, let alone my whole Fiji adventure. It’s even more difficult to accept that I’ve left! In some ways it … Continue reading Isa Lei!
These are a few of my favourite things! I’ve been known to get a little carried away with capturing sunsets and Nemos during my time in Fiji, often being absent for the actual sunset at sunset drinks and being the last back on the boat as I pester a family of Nemo fish on snorkelling trips. Seriously though how cool are Nemo fish? and how … Continue reading Nemo’s and Sunsets
Note: this was written a while ago! My first month back in Fiji has been kind of uneventful from a work perspective. I can already see that this year will involve a lot more paper work and a lot less adventure as my focus until September (which is approaching at an alarming rate) is on making programs like Cash Calories, the Dietitians Toolkit and Nutrition … Continue reading Year of the Horse- So Far
