Blue lagoons, rain forests, coral reefs, friendly locals — Fiji is pretty close to paradise
CASTAWAY ISLAND, FIJI — The foot-long flying fish came straight at us, backflipping through the jade lagoon. Surely, we thought, it would turn. But no — at the last moment the fish launched itself, hurtling past my shoulder, arcing over our small motorboat and landing on the other side in a perfect electric-green splash.
My friend Joyce and I looked at each other, wide-eyed.
It was another Fiji moment.
