Taveuni and the International Dateline

The 180-degree meridian cuts straight through Taveuni Island as the map in the picture shows. If you're staying on Taveuni Island, then it's just a 10-minute walk south of Waiyevo. If you're easily amused, then you can enjoy 'time travelling' from one day to the next.

'Fiji Time'

When you arrive in Fiji, 'Fiji time' will kick-in. You're in the tropics now, in island paradise. Everything is done slower, and even slower away from the main island. This is what makes Fiji so attractive, relax and take it all in. Adjust your thinking from from Western-thinking-time to island-thinking-time. Leave your watch behind, your western-efficiency, and your stress. They aren't needed.

You're in a different culture, a different part of the world, so don't expect things to be done how you normally expect it to be done. Embrace your laid-back holiday/vacation, and especially the outstanding Fijian hospitality as things get done in 'Fiji time'... that is 'nothing gets done in a hurry', which always is accompanied with a warm friendly smile.
