With sushi as my breakfast I sit in the departure lounge at Auckland International Airport. Virgin Air apologises for the late departure of its plane while Fiji Airways tells it’s passengers to ‘relax’ and we’ll be boarding soon: I obey.
Chillaxing is on my agenda for the next few days – I have been invited to Fiji for 4 nights on the catamaran Fiji Princess. Sometimes it’s hard being a travel writer.
‘Yeah right ‘ I hear you say and I must concur … a free trip like this (often called a famil ) is a bonus: however, most of my travels are self-funded.
However the only difference you will see with a self funded trip and one like this, is I will tweet (and other social media ) about it more. The information and story about my experience will remain the truth. No photoshopped pictures or embroidered words.
So sit back and relax … Welcome to a few days chilling on a Fiji adventure with me.
