It’s something many people desire, to pick up and go. To embark on an adventure, and leave our mundane lives behind. The idea brings pleasure, but the reality is that most of us need some sort of assurance in order to fully be able to embrace the situation for what it is. Whether it be a travel companion, the blessing of loved ones, or attending school, we tend to long for the adventure with a safety net. For me, that safety net was a job. To be honest, I had recently completed my Bachelor's in interdisciplinary studies, and had a direction but nothing to back it.
One of the many beautiful distant paradise like getaways, Fiji, is a surprisingly easy trip to make from the US. If you’re lucky enough to reside in NZ or AUS, you’re a close flight to this destination. Direct flights from LA land you in Nadi where you are able to stay or catch a boat to one of the other 300 islands from a series of ports.
