Hi there
Just wondering if anyone would have any suggestions for three days in fiji?
Where could I stay? I am flying into Nadir but wouldn't mind stating somewhere else near by on a budget.
Any activities or suggested things to do or see I'd be very grateful.
Thanks

I’d like to share some information about my recent trip to PNG.

General information:
I had a 1-way ticket from Brisbane to Port Moresby and Quantas which operates the AirNiugini flights made me buy a refundable return ticket (90A$ fee). The man in charge was a real pain. It’s probably advisable to fly from Cairns where they have Airniugini staff.
I traveld alone, I am a woman and it has been ok. Apart from places like Port Moresby I felt safe and people were extremely friendly and welcoming

A good book to learn about PNG rainforests and more:

both sites have reviews and info.
Not easy to purchase in PNG; take a copy and give to someone in PNG.

Hi
I'm traveling to Fiji from the London for a friends wedding in August and just wondered if anyone had any suggestions of the most economical routes there/back?
Travelling solo and I've got a month to play with so happy to have a stop over on the way out and possibly 1 or 2 on the way back. Just a tad overwhelmed with options so thought I'd seek advice.
Thanks x

Hey guys!

I just got back from 1 week in Palau and first of all I just want to say it was awesome. I'm a budget traveler and like many people, I had a hard time getting information about traveling cheaply in Palau beforehand. Ultimately, it's not that cheap of a destination to travel but this website had a really great article that helped me travel Palau as cheaply as I could.... I probably would have gone broke if I hadn't seen it. Here's the link: http://outofyourcomfortzone.net/the-ultimate-
