It was my 30th birthday recently (terrifying) and I thought I deserved a treat for reaching such a landmark. That treat happened to be heading to Madagascar. I’ve been with STA Travel for 7 years and every year I made a file with flights to Antananarivo to (not so subtly) try and convince my other half that this year was the year we should visit. With the birthday as an excuse my somewhat exotic holiday demands were finally met with little resistance and my dream destination was on the table…

Now, we don’t think you’re really going to need a lot of convincing on this. Whether it’s the breathtaking Mamanuccas or the seeming endless swathe of the Yasawas (they’ve got some great names out there) Fiji is quite simply paradise on earth.
With all this to explore and no boat of your own (we’re assuming – we may be wrong) a trip to this area can seem quite daunting. But where as in Oz, Nz and Latin America you can jump on a hop-on hop-off bus, Fiji has it’s own version with the hop-on hop-off Yasawa flyer. Jump on, sit back and explore your new favourite part of the world.
