Fiji - an amazing family holiday

So I've just returned from Paradise and words can't describe how wonderful our week was in Fiji.We went to Castaway Island in a group of 50 for our friend's wedding.

We had an amazing time swimming, eating, drinking cocktails and catching up with friends.I would truly have to say it was one of the most relaxing and best holidays I've ever had.It really exceeded all of my expectations! 

Don't you love it when that happens?
Please excuse the overload of pics! I was totally snap happy and the scenery was so beautiful. Just like a postcard!

Have you been to Fiji? Did you love it as much as we did?
Also thank you for all of the advice on taking a stroller. We did and it was a life saver :)


  1. Oh so gorgeous Simone. Looks and sounds utterly perfect, so glad you had a top time. And that wasn't a photo overload at all... would love to have seen more! I'm sure Sydney's big rainy chill has you wishing you were back there xo

  2. Oh wow Simone, it looks so idyllic and relaxing and beautiful! What a precious getaway and time spent together. A friend of mine only recently returned from Fiji with her family too and was full of praise for it... xx

  3. Gorgeous! Looks like you had a wonderful time. I cant speak highly enough of that place. We got married on Castaway in 2011 and absolutely loved it, and we fly out on Sunday to go back with our little one in tow! Can't wait to escape this rainy chilly weather!

  4. Love your pics. We went a couple of years ago when our baby (who is now 5) was about the same age as your baby. The people are just so beautiful that you just cannot not love the place. We are off to Vanuatu this year so I am hoping it does not disappoint.

  5. What a great idea for a wedding, that way its like a honeymoon for everyone :)
    Im going to FIJI in November as part of a cruise and can't wait. Looks like you had a great time x

  6. wow, looks like bliss Simone! We just back from Hawaii and it's been freeezzing, which I'm sure you felt as well when you returned! It is so good to travel with friends, the kids have a great time and it takes the burden off you entertaining as well:)

  7. Oh wow. Looks and sounds divine! Perfect family destination. I really want to go to Fiji and have only ever heard GREAT things about it. But one of my Brothers and his family live in Honiara in the Solomon Islands and although it's more expensive to travel there {not enough traffic there and back to allow cheap flights} I feel we better visit there first {to do the right thing by the family...if that makes sense?!} But FIJI is def on the cards to go one day and your pictures have me yearning for it even more :)
    We take a stroller when we travel anywhere with Ryder....makes life sooo much easier....even though its another thing to lug around.

  8. Hiya Simone - these pics are beautiful! I'm heading to Fiji next Sunday (a lasting the decision - I booked last night!) and I'm wondering if you have any advice for what to pack for Fiji with kids? I've done Bali several times and Thailand but not Fiji......

    What about for you? Did you find nice cossies/cover ups before you went? Any recommendations?


Thanks for leaving a comment :) You just made my day xx
