Veresa's brain, he walked me to the point in his village that overlooked
the ocean. In the distance, he pointed out Beqa Island where he grew
up. Suddenly, I had a destination for an adventure in Fiji.
suggested a visit to Lawaki Beach where his sister could host me and
give me the kind of Fiji experience I adore. He didn't have to suggest
sometimes when traveling, things just do not go the way as expected.
No matter the preparations, sometimes things just to not make sense.
As planned, I went to Lawaki Beach. However, there was no sister. There
was no village. There were no firewalkers (an island specialty). There
was no cultural experience. Lawaki Beach was a privately owned island
resort. And, I was the only guest.
was a lovely, very quiet, island experience.
