Day 2 started bright and early...we had to be in the Hotel foyer at 5:15am to pick up our breakfast boxes and get on our bus. I think most of us snoozed our way along the coast and through villages and sugar cane fields to the Jungle Region of Fiji. We had to change to smaller 4WD mini buses to take us along unsealed roads even further into the jungle. We stopped along the way for home-baked banana cake and juice.
We arrived at our destination (the middle of nowhere!) for instruction on river-rafting and then a short (but steep!) trek through the jungle to the river.

It started raining at around lunch time so we had lunch under the shelter of an enormous cave. After some much-needed food, we kept rowing our way down the river to our next stop, the “free massage waterfall”. A few of us stood under it (we were so saturated by this time, with all the splashing games and the rain, that staying dry really wasn’t an option!). I had a go:
We arrived back at the Sofitel just after 8pm, rather exhausted and starving too. We spun the Wheel (Well Worn DSP for me!) and loaded up on peanut butter and pretzel m&ms and then our raft buddies Teresa and Tanya were happy to share some room service. We helped them finish their swaps and then our beds were calling us!
Another Pillow Gift – supplies for our Make-and-Take session the next morning! In a gorgeous Big Shot Die Container. Inside were lots of supplies from our upcoming Summer Mini. I can’t show them to you, but I will just say I LOVE it…best make-and-take supplies EVER!
