Fiji Fire Dancers
On our last day at the resort, we wake up to a sign that tonight is a celebration. We quickly booked a dinner table with a good view of the show of the Fiji fire dancers. Luxury travel experts would praise us for choosing the best spot for an anticipated good time. Our family travel had to be memorable. So the only way of doing that was to find our selves in the right place and at the right time. Our single parent travel adventure just couldn’t disappoint – so we thought.
A Fijian man scurries up the tree (you can just see him), throws down a dozen coconuts, and we get to have a drink each.
My son enjoys a swim in the Anchorage Resort swimming pool. Alas, someone I knew, had promised to sort out our next few nights accommodation, I had been promised months ago, but it seems clear it was not going to eventuate. Instead of a swim for me, I sit by the pool with a drink and Google a myriad of accommodation sites to try to plan somewhere to stay.
I book 2 nights but run out of time to book Suva, where we need a night before we head on our 14-hour ferryboat ride.
The Fiji fire dancers show is about to start, and I am still on the laptop 4 hours from when I began – I have to get better at this – and I need websites where I can search accommodation for 2 but be able to specify one is a child. I have a 10-year-old Lonely Planet guide, that finally had saved the day.
So most people are halfway through their dinner. The tables are all decorated, and the pillars are wrapped in platted palm leaves. I haven’t even looked up to see if the Fiji fire dancers have started yet.
People are sitting around the Kava bowl, and after being given a lovely floral necklace each, my son literally drags me up laughing and insists I drink the horrid muddy Kava water.
I thought Explorason had plonked himself in the show! But I find out the Chief had selected him as the only person to join in. The actions are fast, and he is concentrating hard and does well. I am proud of him learning the actions.
There are Fiji fire dancers, fire throwing, dancing, the conga-line, limbo and a lot of fun.
We are all up having a great time. My son does well at the limbo.
What an awesome ending to our resort vacation with the Fiji fire dancers – it really was a perfect night!
