1. Fiji

Explore the exquisite beaches, undersea marvels, swaying palm trees and enjoy your time in Fiji time.

If you didn’t know, Fiji time is a word used to explain everything from unexpected delays to unplanned things. 

While in Fiji, learn the word Bula (pronounced Boo-lah), which is the national greeting on the island.


Here is the full video of my shark dive in Fiji! ?????? In total we had over 60, different sharks. My favourite ones? The huge Bullsharks! As we were diving without a cage, they were often so close that they touched you! For all the shark haters, or people that are afraid of them: 13 people were killed last year by sharks.

150 people died because a coconut was falling from a palm tree on their had. Around 100.

000.000 sharks are murdered each year by humans.


000!!!! Sharks are unbelievable important for our ecosystem! It’s good to have respect for them but there is no reason to be afraid! . .
