Ni Sa Bula TW!
so i just landed in LAX this afternoon coming home from Fiji. first let me say two things, this is a toyota fans/wheelers paradise...turbo diesel hilux's everywhere....
for real though. The trip was amazing. i could easily spend a year there or something or live there for a while. (i didnt want to leave).
The people are absolutely the nicest group of people i have ever met/seen. There is endless amount of things to do there (especially if you surf )
we flew out of LAX at 11:00pm after a quick 10 hour flight we land in Nadi, Fiji 5:00am (fiji time).
you know what ill just let the pictures do the rest......enjoy!
