April 25th 2020, was supposed to be the start of my Iceland Adventure, on the way to the UK for my annual visit with my mum in Newquay, Cornwall. I was going to tour Iceland for a week visiting popular hot spots as well as hidden gems. However, due to COVID-19 and the travel restrictions needed to prevent the spread of the disease, my flights to Iceland and the UK were cancelled (which I expected). So, I decided to tour Iceland virtually instead (via Google Maps—which I do quite often anyway) and to share my virtual journey of Iceland with you. If Iceland is on your travel bucket list, come with me as I take you on a Virtual Iceland Adventure.

While you may think the best way to see the Fijian islands is by boat, there’s a very good reason why you should take a road trip along Fiji’s Coral Coast, especially if you’re staying at one of the main resort towns on Viti Levu. If you truly want to immerse yourself in Fiji culture, visit hidden gems and see stunning coastal scenery, then getting off the resort and taking a road trip along Fiji’s Coral Coast is a must do experience.
If you’re planning on going on a road trip in Fiji, you have a few transportation options to choose from depending on your budget, trip duration, where you’re travelling, how many stops you plan to make along the route and how much you want to drive. Of course, you could book a tour to save you the hassle of driving and planning your route and experiences on your journey, but if you prefer the freedom of driving, it’s better to be prepared and to know what to expect before you go. So below are some useful tips for driving in Fiji, plus renting a vehicle, hiring a taxi or using public buses or private coaches.
