Life Without  Google

Doing the journalism project in a developing country has many benefits. There are many opportunities that I have had, and the experience I am gaining I would never have had in the same way back in my home country.

Christmas

I headed back over to the marine camp on Beqa for the Christmas festivities – without any volunteers in Suva I thought it may be a bit lonely! The boat this time was glorious! Calm sea, blue sky and just a tiny bit of sea spray. Nothing like my previous crossing!

Staff blog: how to enjoy your free time in Fiji

Volunteering in Suva isn’t all about the work, after the working week has finished volunteers have a wide range of activities to take part in and locations to visit during their weekends. Such activities include the world famous shark feeding dive for those who are already qualified divers, for those that don’t dive but have always wanted to learn they can visit our sister project on Beqa island and join the marine conservation volunteers for a weekend either doing a full open water course, a discover scuba diving session or just go snorkelling in the pristine waters of Beqa lagoon.

If water sports are not your thing there are many other adventurous activities such as a zip line tour, horse riding, jet skis, river rafting, kayaking, surfing and sky diving. If all of that seems a bit too energetic then you can just relax by the beach, go on a visit to a traditional Fijian village or stay home and enjoy the delights of partying in Suva. Locations to visit include Pacific Harbour, Raki Raki, Mango Bay, Beach House, Yasawa Islands, Beqa Island, Mamanuka Islands, Eco Lodge, Savusavu and Nadi.

So whatever you are interested in Fiji offers something for you and when you return to Suva on a Sunday night Mamma and Master will welcome you back to the homestay ready for another week of volunteering!
