What I Learned in Fiji….

December 11, 2013 · Print This Article

I just returned from an amazing 3 week trip around the Fiji Islands and New Zealand.  We stayed in a few luxury hideaways as well as a few roadside motels.  I learned a few things and want to share with you.

When you visit Fiji, don’t let their laid back and friendly nature fool you.  Fijians are inquisitive and intelligent people.  Of course they speak their native language, but are taught English in school as well as mathematics, accounting, geography, science and history.

We visited Namale Resort & Spa for a few nights - I recall one night while enjoying an amazing dinner of prawns soaked in all sorts of South Pacific spices, our waiter nervously asked us about the difference between America and North America.  He was timid and apologetic but his inquisitive nature  and burning questions about the U.S. and the locations of our states trumped his shyness.

A very nice prior guest had sent the resort a McNally large Geography book (that we all have in our living rooms).  The resort had one of them and he was eager to open it and ask questions about like how far different countries were from each other.  He was hungry for information and to learn about the world in which we live.  Fijians are very poor and can barely afford the basic needs.  When you next visit Fiji, please pack some notebooks, fold up maps and pencils to share when visiting a village.
