Guest Sharon Johnson and her husband were on Volendam for the trans-Pacific voyage to Sydney and the circumnavigation of Australia for 55 days. Enjoy this post and photos from their call at Suva, Fiji.
On our visit to Suva, Fiji, we had a tour out of town to see “Fantastic Fijian Fire Walkers”. We drove for an hour along the Queens Highway to Pacific Harbor. Al and I had driven this same highway from Nadi to Suva about 26 years ago. We were going to a small island off the coast of Suva for a week’s vacation. The trip took six hours and we didn’t want to be late as we would have missed the boat to the island. Naturally, we had a flat tire somewhere around Pacific Harbor. This time we were leaving the driving to the bus driver. When we arrived at the “Arts Village”‘ we were greeted by music. There was time for shopping before going to the amphitheater for the performance of dancing and fire walking. The “Arts Village” MC narrated the entire fire walkers show and told the story of the dances performed. – Sharon and Al Johnson
