The wind was strong northerly so the idea came up to Kite surf from one house to the other!

Seems logical right?

20km in a straight line...

Approx 1hr 30...

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...

True warriors fight life Jun 18, 2019

My observation and lesson for the week:

True warriors fight even when winning is almost impossible and the slightest chance of success...

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...
