Fiji's Sleeping Giant

I wish I could say that I woke up with the sun, stretched luxuriously and sprang out of bed ready to take on the day.

But that would be a lie. Firstly, it was pouring rain.
Secondly, I woke up hungover. (It happens.)

But a good buffet and a post breakfast nap were all I needed to head out on our day of adventure with our local guide, Joe and our driver, who told us to call him Kelly Slater, like the surfer. Hell yeah!

After rocketing around some rather bumpy roads we emerged at the Sabeto mud pools at the base of the mountain that they call The Sleeping Giant.

The grounds were peaceful and quiet...

Honeymoon in Paradise

Ahhh, Fiji.

We were greeted as soon as we arrived and driven an hour away from the hustle and bustle of Nadi and straight to the paradise that is the Intercontinental Golf Resort and Spa, right on the tranquil beauty that is Natadola beach.

The view from the check-in counter nearly took my breath away. We were officially in the most beautiful place I have ever seen.

Tea for Two and Horse Races Too

I have to say, I'm so lucky to have such a wonderful person to spend my time with. Someone who really gets my love of going new places, and who lets me take her on new adventures. 

Her? Yes, you read that correctly. I was talking about
Gloria, of course!! My new husband isn't exactly the tea going type, much as I love him.

For my maid of honor gift, I found a bakery that MSN proclaims to be one of the best in the country, I'll let you in a secret.....they weren't lying.
