Happy Fiji Day! adventure life Oct 09, 2019

Happy Fiji Day to all the Fijians and everyone they touch.

These guys are the nicest, friendliest people I have met. The day I first experienced Namotu island back in 2002 I no longer saw the world the same.
Life was then about living and working was the facilitator for that...

17 years later I...

I love the calm blue ocean with the peaceful calm energy inviting me to swim.

I love the small high tide waves inviting me to foil.

I love the windy rough ocean inviting me to kitesurf...

and I love the onshore wind with no waves,...

Gratitude for the simple things

Just 5 minutes... adventure life Jul 06, 2019

Just 5 minutes up to the fallen tree across the creek, just five minutes further to a rock pool, just five minutes to another crossing, just five minutes till you see a waterfall, just five minutes to the bottom, just 5 minutes up to the top of the waterfall...

Turned into a 4 hour round trip...

My observation and lesson for the week:

It is in their blood it is in their DNA...

They would rather die giving it everything they have than to sit back...

They turn over every rock, search for every...
