Coming Back Home

Well, I suppose holidays have to end at some stage and now its back to the real world. We had such a great time away, the South Pacific Islands are diverse and beautiful and the people are so friendly. Its amazing to think that here in Australia we are so close to these places, yet it felt like we were worlds away surrounded by different cultures, customs, languages and religions. Its a little bit of paradise right at our door step, one which I am sure we will be visiting again!

So what did we do?

We swam in clear blue seas...





...and in the freash water Blue Hole on the island of Santo Spirito, Vanuatu (Yes it really is that blue!)...

...thought we had gone to heaven when we arrive at Ile Des Pins in New Caledonia...



...spent numerous hours wandering around the various fresh food markets in Fiji and Vanuatu...





...and happily meandered around each place taking in the sights...









...and reluctanly said goodbye and returned home.
