So you wanna go to Fiji, huh?

Of course you do!

As some of you may or may not know, I spent 17 days exploring Fiji back in November/December of 2012 thanks to Tourism Fiji. The trip was absolutely amazing and I couldn’t have asked for a better crew to share my experiences with.

A few weeks ago I received an email from a friend who works at the PR company that set me up with Tourism Fiji back in November and she wanted to know if I would be interested in hosting a special giveaway for my followers.

The prize? Dun, dun, dun…

    Fiji is on the top of my list of places to visit!!! I am 29 years old and have yet to go abroad (except for Canada and Mexico!) I had friends that went back in college and since I’ve heard about it I’ve always wanted to go. It looks AMAZINGLY beautiful and a place I’ve always dreamed of going to. I am getting married in October and we are trying to finance a honeymoon to a beautiful, relaxing tropical place. Money is an issue and this would just be amazing!

    You know all of those computer background images and motivational posters of surreal beaches? Those are all of Fiji. I’d like to reconcile with my brain that a place like that actually does exist.

    On a flight to New Zealand, our plane needed to land in Fiji because the crew got sick. When we heard the announcement two thoughts went through my head- 1. I hope it wasn’t something I ate, and 2. I’m going to run to the nearest beach and dip my toes in the water.
    Unfortunately, we were not allowed off of the plane while they switched the crew members; it was just a tease!
    I had a little bite of Fiji and now I would like the whole thing- to be able to go back and actually get off of the plane, and run to the beach.
    Thanks for the wonderful opportunity!

I can only imagine the footage I could get there. I would do my best to represent all that Fiji has to offer. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I’m 22 years old and I graduated college in 3 years. I already have a full time job (which I’m blessed for), but I still feel like there’s so much that I want to see before I get locked down in one place for too long. I write a blog post every week for work and while it’s sort of a travel blog, I’m mainly writing about the cool things to do in places that I’ve never been. I would LOVE the chance to actually get out there and explore so that I can document my own experiences!! I’ve only been to a few other states besides Texas and other than that, I haven’t traveled much. The most exciting vacation that I ever took was to Costa Rica. I went my freshman year in high school and I would love to go back one day, now that I’m older. I loved everything about it, from the tropical beaches that I visited, to the hiking and ziplining experiences that I got from the forest. I feel like Fiji would offer me another experience of a lifetime and that’s why I really hope that I’ll be lucky enough to win! Simply put…it would be awesome!

    Why I dream of visiting Fiji? Because it looks absolutely amazing! Also because I’m a water baby who freedives and takes underwater photos. I’ve explored parts of the Caribbean and Florida but have never had the chance to visit Fiji, until now that is :). I would love the opportunity to explore another part of the world and maybe catch a wave or two.

    I recently caught the travel bug (London last year and Thailand this spring) and your blog has all but increased my passion for traveling. When in Thailand, we used a ton of your reco’s (Pantera Elephant Farm was amazing!) and would love the opportunity to continue these adventures. With all the help we received planning our Thailand trip from travel review sites and blogs, I’m also now dedicated to “paying it forward” and giving honest reviews of everything I experience abroad so I can help others guide their travel plans. Thanks for this chance guys-would love the chance to continue these unbelievable experiences!

    We hear the diving in Fiji is amazing. As newly certified divers Fiji would be the perfect getaway. Plus, we live in the Northeast USA – and it snows a lot here, we need some sun to get us through the terrible winter.

    I work hard and deserve to go somewhere new every year. Every since you went to Fiji last year I have been very intrigued with Fijian culture. Don’t get me wrong I love all the images that we see on the travel channel and ads of the unspoiled beaches but I would like to experience beyond the beach. Thanks for inspiring me to continue to travel.

    Growing up I’ve been very fortunate to have a mother who loves traveling. Starting at a young age, she shared her passion with my brother and I and because of this, we’ve had the opportunity to visit some amazing places around the world. My favorites include: Nassau, Bahamas, The Grand Cayman Islands, and my absolute favorite, San Pedro, Belize. This is an amazing feat with her being a single mother and raising a set of rambunctious twins. I can’t even express how thankful I am for her influence and the opportunities she has given my brother and I. A trip to Fiji is something we have always talked about doing, but now that my brother and I are in college (almost finished…hopefully), it’s been hard to find the time. We’ve been trying to find a way to thank our mother for everything she has taught and shown us, but two 21 years olds working for 10 bucks an hour isn’t going to get her anything too extravagant. Two round trip tickets to Fiji would be a great start to the most epic thank you to the woman who deserves everything.

    I lived in Fiji for 6 months back in 2010 to do a research thesis on how foreign aid programs create dependency in developing nations. I have been trying to go back ever since and can’t afford to! My extended family is there and I have told them every year that I’d like to get back to see them and continue my research.

    It’s my birthday this Thursday and a great present would be to win these tickets! It would mean so much to me, my family and my friends who have been wanting me to return for 3 years now!! What an awesome opportunity!

Needless to say, we couldn’t afford a crazy trip to Fiji and would DIE to go somewhere that gorgeous!

    Growing up in the desert, I always loved the beach and would constantly beg my parents for a surfboard, despite the nearest beach being 5 hours away. So instead, I lived vicariously through the documentary “Step into Liquid” which I watched over and over and over again, dreaming of my chance to visit Fiji or one of the many other beaches featured in the film.

    I have been a student for the past five years (like a lot of people, I felt the need to continue after the first four), and I never got a chance to go abroad. I have done service work in Nicaragua, and I would love to volunteer more of my time. Still, Fiji seems like the perfect place to get away and to slow down. I will admit, the first time I started dreaming of Fiji was when I started watching The Bachelor/Bachelorette, but it has made such an impression on my mind! I don’t have much of an imagination, but I can already feel that ocean breeze!

    I’ve been dealing with a lot of homesickness and a huge urge to travel lately. Little did I know that moving from Sweden to Hawaii would be so challenging! Even though I live in what a lot of people call “paradise”, I am in need of a break. A vacation where I can relax, enjoy new surroundings and say to myself: “Hey girl, you might be far from your loved ones but remember that life is pretty amazing and you’ve become really good at living to the fullest every day!”.
    Could there be any better place to do that than in Fiji? Uhm no, I don’t think so!

    Traveling has always been a dream of mine. As a current student i’ve come to learn that not everything in life should be lived in a room with 4 walls stuck to a computer. Life is too short to be wasted. Seeing and traveling around the world has been a long dream of mine and this trip would be an amazing help. This would be a HUGE stepping stone in order to get me moving out of my “normal” life and start seeing the world. The world has so much to offer and everyone should get a chance to see it! Especially FIJI with its gorgeous beaches and exotic appeal! Best of luck to everyone who is trying to get this!

    Hi guys!

    The main reason I’d love to go to Fiji is because I would love to take my boyfriend of 2 years. I was hit by a car ~3 months ago (March 22), and he has been there for me through surgery and the painful recovery path – taking care of me everyday by cooking, pushing me around NYC in a wheelchair, and even picking me up to put me on the toilet (!!!) I will be walking again in a couple of weeks and I can think of no better way to repay my amazing guy than to take him on a trip to the most beautiful islands in the world where we could both relax, pause the moment ;), and just enjoy life.

    I also wish you both luck in everything you do! :)

    I just got back from studying abroad in New Zealand and I tried so hard to make it over to Fiji, but it was just too pricey. This would be incredible, Fiji is my #1 dream vacation spot!

    I have wanted to go to Fiji for years (Heaven on earth? Yes, please!) When my husband and I first were planning on getting married, Fiji was the dream. However reality set in and our wedding and honeymoon had to be reigned in dramatically. We even had to cancel our original honeymoon (airline drama) and try and replan our modest honeymoon for almost a year. I would love to (five years later) try again.

    Fiji has long been on my Bucket List. I was supposed to visit a couple years ago but had to come home for a family emergency.

    Fiji strikes me as an incredible place filled with wonderful people. Watched Lesley Carter’s video for #mybbb and could tell that meeting and spending time with the locals would definitely be the best part of the trip.

    As a bonus, it would be an awesome 30th bday present for me (bday is next week). Regardless, it’s great that you, Lesley, and Matt are giving people a chance to explore the world! Keep up the awesome adventures!

    I have always dreamed of traveling to Fiji but have never had the chance to travel abroad due to my strict finances and personal situation. Now, as an adult, I am passionate about all travel and love to share my experiences with others as inspiration that anything is possible!

    My fiance and I both dream of visiting Fiji as our honeymoon destination. We love relaxing beach vacations and the fact that Fiji is so pristine and natural makes it much more appealing than other locations that are more touristy! Fiji looks like the most magical, serene tropical paradise I could imagine and it would make my year to be able to pay this place a visit!

    I would love to win this trip so that my husband and I could FINALLY go on our Honeymoon. We have been married for 5 years in December and still have not gone on one. It would be an awesome surprise for him, he’s always wanted to go to Fiji and hike and explore the wilderness of the island. I would love to go and learn about the culture and maybe even find a race to run in while there or just run on the beaches. We are both avid out door lovers who love to bike and hike. We have a 2 year old little girl who loves to be outside also. This trip would be a great trip for us, time away to relax and just spend time on us. He works a construction job until 2 and then goes and works 2nd shit at a hospital and I work part time at a clothing store (talbots) and am a personal trainer and I do hair on the side. So this would be a great relaxing and a WONDERFUL time for us to reconnect with each other!

    I would love to have the opportunity to go to Fiji!! My boyfriend and I have been together for already 4 years and I have always wanted to take him somewhere to give him something that would make him feel as important as he makes me feel. Fiji would be an absolute perfect place to make more memories and add special times to our relationship!! This would mean more to him than I can begin to tell you. :D

    Jul 8, 2013 at 8:24 PM

    Ever since I was a little girl and I did a report on Fiji in grammar school, I have been fascinated with the island and its people. I wanted to go there for our honeymoon but we couldn’t afford it. It’s our 25th anniversary this year and we still talk about going. LOL. I would love to win this for my husband. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I dream of visiting Fiji to enjoy every water activity available, especially the scuba diving! The diving looks amazing and it would be a bonus to see a whale shark. The beaches and water look beautiful and I have fantasized about going to Fiji ever since I picked up an Islands Magazine decades ago. Enjoying the Fijian culture would be the best above water activity and most likely a very memorable experience.

    I have always been a cold weather, mountains and woods sort of person, so the plan is to move to Alaska within the next 5 years. Over the last 18 months or so though I have been spending time roughing it in the dunes outside of Provincetown, and really enjoying the different environments. The sea is so vast and changing, like the sky. Fiji is pretty much the definition of sea and sky. I am a photographer and am always looking for a new place to immerse myself into. The imagery of Fiji would be astounding.

    There are many reasons why I want to visit Fiji. The obvious has to do with the beautiful beaches. However, I have read a lot of articles highlighting the interior of the biggest island and the culture. I want to visit to discover the other side of paradise (and have some good food too).

  127. Katherine Belarmino

    I dream of going to Fiji with the man of my dreams, who I’ll be marrying in May 2014. It would be such a dream (not to mention stress reliever) to have the honeymoon flights covered, since we’re paying for every tiny detail ourselves. I would just spend all day snuggling with my guy on the beach :) Nowhere in the world better to do that than Fiji…

  137. Gisela

    Jul 8, 2013 at 10:17 PM

    Your pictures on your blog makes me even more excited to wasn’t too go someday. I love to travel and am always thinking and planning for the next adventure. The beaches look so serene and I can only imagine the sea life I’d find while snorkeling. End the day in one of those over the water huts…this girl’s dream has come true:)

    Fiji has always been a dream “bucket list” destination. My husband and I have not taken a vacation alone together since our son was born with a rare genetic disease 4 years ago. We are a happy family but even happy families need a dream to keep them going.

    I would enjoy winning this trip because otherwise, the closest thing I’ll have come to seeing that kind of place is when I buy the bottle of water. Pretty bottle but what kind of life is that? I am pretty sure I’d finally stop telling the same old tales of my last notable vacation, spring break, Cancun in 2003.

    Jul 9, 2013 at 9:03 AM

    I am a bit of an environmentalist, nature and people lover! Visiting Fiji would give me the opportunity to explore the island from a nature standpoint as well as culturally. I have a friend who has recently sailed from New Zealand and I would love to fly down and share the experience of sailing around the islands with him, while at the same time getting to know the locals and immersing myself in their culture and daily routine.

    Fiji has been the one place I have always said I wanted to go if I could travel anywhere. Not sure if it is the beach, the palm trees, or the beautiful water that makes me want to go, but I just have this pull towards Fiji. That one day I know I need to go. Hope I get a chance soon.

  159. Meag

    Jul 9, 2013 at 9:58 AM

    When I got engaged my fiancé and I planned to have our wedding in Fiji. We dreamed of saying our sacred vows on the most beautiful beach and spending a week together in the most beautiful place we had ever laid eyes on. Unfortunately our families couldn’t accept that. We ended up eloping (without family present) 6 months later. While we loved our little ceremony we always wished we had gone to Fiji. We would LOVE to win this trip and fulfill our biggest dream trip. My husband just got back from Afghanistan so this would be the best homecoming trip for us! Thanks so much for this opportunity to win our dream vacation :)

    Growing up in the projects of Pittsburgh, I never got to do extravagant things like go on vacations and Fuji is a place I have long dreamed of going to, I see pictures of the amazing beaches and I can’t even imagine what it would be like to be in such a beautiful place so far removed from the place I grew up in.

  163. Alicia Fortin

    Jul 9, 2013 at 10:49 AM

    I’ve always dreamed of going to Fiji. Simply because it looks like paradise and I love visiting new places and immersing myself in the culture. Having the ability to use the money we would have spent on a flight will allow us to enjoy a visit even more! Thanks Tourism Fiji and Pause the Moment for the opportunity!

I know multiple people who have experienced Fiji, and they have nothing but great things to say about the beauty of the land, the sea, and the people. I’ve got my SCUBA gear packed and ready to go – as well as my camera! Send me to FIJI! I need a tropical vacation in my life STAT.

    Jul 9, 2013 at 1:13 PM

    Fiji has always seemed like an unreachable place to me. After traveling to China and Hong Kong, I’ve realized there’s no place unreachable and Fiji has jumped back on my travel list. It would be awesome to go to Fiji because I’ve never been anywhere like it before. My favorite thing in the world is a perfect beach, and Fiji looks like it might have exactly what I’m looking for. It would be nice to escape the cold Boston winter with an awesome trip to Fiji! Thanks for the opportunity!

  175. Kinley

    I have been following your blog for the past several months and have been inspired to stop making excuses and travel the world more. I love all the recos you give and after reading about your adventures in Fiji it sounds amazing. I would love the opportunity to explore the culture and visit the people of Fiji.

    P.S. Thank you for all the Thailand tips – trip of a lifetime, hopefully more to come.

    I want to go to Fiji because a tropical beach is the closest thing there is to heaven and the people from Fiji are the closest people to angels. I’ve always heard about the grace and hospitality of the people from Fiji. I need a haven of pure relaxation, beauty, and bliss. It has been years. Maybe I’ll find the love of my life there, seeking the same thing :-)

    About six years ago, before we got engaged, we found Matangi Island Resorts website and fell in love. Now, newly engaged, we would love to spend our honeymoon in Fiji. Of course, with a tight budget that seems to be getting tighter every day our dream seems to get farther and farther away. This would be an amazing help to get us to those beautiful beaches that have seemed so far out of our reach for so very long. Just the thought of kissing my soon to be husband on the any of those beautiful islands makes my heart skip a beat. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

    I am a poor girl from Oregon, dreaming of watching a sunset across an ocean. Feeling the water upon my bare feet. Running to the waters edge & seeing the water sparkles like diamonds, as the golden sun slowly disappears. The beauty of Fiji leaves me breathless, never needing more. I am enticed and invited to stay forever. I realize this is not a dream, but thanks to you – a possibility – I would swim the distance of the ocean & walk it twice to have the chance to win this.

Instead we took a US road trip, (which, though a lot of fun, was NOT FIJI) I have started earning points/miles recently to try and earn reward tickets.

    Bula! Fiji is the hub of the South Pacific. Not only is it full of beautiful beaches, lush forests and unique landscapes, a variety of different species, but it is home of some of the friendliest people you will meet! Fiji has so much to see and much more to learn from the strong culture. You would be crazy to not want to experience a place like this!

    Um, who doesn’t want to go to Fiji?! I surely cannot miss going to Fiji since it looks like a paradise you only see in movies. Well, I want to experience it for real and be able to tell about it. Plus, it would be my first time in that part of the Pacific!!

    Oh, and I would have to go there with a special someone, I think that’s the best way to experience Fiji!!

    My fiance and I would LOVE to go to Fiji on our honeymoon and honestly the price of the flight was a big obstacle that it probably won’t happen. I saw this and it was too good to be true. We would be thrilled to actually be able to enjoy our first week of married life together in a beautiful bungalow over the water in fabulous Fiji :)

    This year I was laid off from my job and have been struggling to find a new one. I’ve managed to continue keeping my skills up by doing some small and some free consulting gigs and I’m now starting to ponder on doing independent work given that I haven’t been hired full time yet by another company. I have amazing skills and am super dedicated, so I think that going to Fiji with a loved one will help me get in tune with my inner self to decide what to do. Keep searching, or take a leap and try self employment.

    Hi Ryan! I would soooooo love to win this trip to Fijii! I started following this blog when you did the bike trip down the West Coast, which was totally amazing, and since then I’ve followed your adventures on Facebook. You are incredible and I love that you travel with your girlfriend Liz.
    I want to win this trip to take an amazing vacation with my Mom. I’ve been overseas in Jordan for 2 years now and not sure when I’m heading back to the states again. My Mom came to visit me over here last year but the funds are tight to travel too often between countries so winning this trip would mean the World to both me and her.
    If I do not win this trip I do hope whoever wins will have the time of their life :)

    Fiji sounds like an amazing adventure! As a single mom with two kids (100% full-time) and a demanding career, I look for me-time get aways. Keeping me healthy and balanced helps me be a better mom. Since life is all about the moment, I would love to experience some of my moments in Fiji!

    I have always dreamed of visiting Fiji, because I love the beautiful terrain, the warm sunny disposition of the people. I have thought of living there because it looks so layed back and the people really seem to know and use their resources to live off the land while retaining the integrity of its fauna and animal habitat.

    I dream of Fiji because I’m addicted to tropical islands. This island girl needs more island time in her life and only stopped in Nadi on the way to New Zealand. It was the biggest tease to just be at the airport and dying to get back. Need to surf those warm waters of Tavarua!!!

    Well, of course I’d like to go to Fiji to relax on the beautiful beaches. But I’d also really love to take my mom there. This sounds silly, but one time we were watching the Keeping up With the Kardashians show (I know, I know). The family took a trip to Fiji (I think). My mom said “I can’t believe some people actually get to go to a place like that.” Ever since then I decided I would take my mom to Fiji at some point.

    Because it looks like, hands down, the most gorgeous place on earth and I’ve always wanted to go! And I’m sure my husband would be stoked on the surf;)

    The thought/want of going to FIJI has always been an interest of mine. I would love to examine the beauty and obviously take TONS of photos. This would be a once and a lifetime kinda thing for me. My husband has been and still is deployed. How amazing would it be if we could both go on a getaway when he returns home?! ..(it would truly be a blessing) thank you, for the chance to win!!

    I just got back from Fiji a couple of weeks ago and it was amazing. I didn’t have enough time to do everything I wanted to do and figured I would just have to go back to Fiji again. However, if I were to win your contest, I would give my tickets to my son and son-to-be daughter-in-law. They are getting married in mid September and I think this would be a great honeymoon destination for them. They are hard working, minimally-paid travel vloggers and this would be a great trip for them.

    As a teenager I always heard stories of Fiji from my classmate and her family who are from there. From the culture to the food to the beaches, I was captivated by our conversations about their country and imagined myself there as they told me stories of their homeland. Winning a trip to Fiji would afford me the opportunity to bring to life what I imagined all those years ago and actually get a first hand account of the country my friend is from and the country I’ve become fond of from a distance.

    The last 5 years of my life have been the most difficult and confusing times inhale ever encountered. With lots of up’s and downs”mostly downs” with a long term relationship ending,not being happy with the career path I have ventured on to….I decided to immerse myself in the eastern philosophies and get deep into meditation to find my center and get my life on track and find peace.I discovered that I was a physical and mental medium to the spirit world after having a negative entity attached to me and made me quite ill for 2 weeks. I found someone in the area that was able to fix the problem that I was having and was them told that I was a gifted reiki healer and this needs to be my life’s work…after a year of reading and learning why I felt the strange things that I have felt all throughout my life,things started to fall in to place in nearly every aspect of my life” once I started to listen instead of ignoring it all. Then I met the love of my life who had oddly enough been unknowingly struggling with a similar issue.But that has all been taken care of now and I find myself in a new place with a new career and life ahead of me with a new perspective on what is important in this life….I now know that things happen for a reason and sometimes you must walk through the darkness to find the light and I would not change it for anything….it’s been a weird,scary and beautiful ride but I would not change it for anything…I have not been on a vacation in ten years and Fiji has always been at the top of my bucket lists once I was about 14 years old and saw a documentary about it on the discovery channel….I need to press pause for a moment

    Going to Fiji would be a dream come true! I am in desperate need of adventure and a beautiful beach view. I have moved from the coast to a land locked state due to school, and I miss the wind in my hair and the salt smell in the air. I would love to surprise my boyfriend with this trip, he works so hard and this kind of trip is much to expensive for either of us at the moment so this would be a dream come true.

    I think a trip to Fiji would be the perfect way to celebrate a recent graduate degree and doctoral degree for my boyfriend and I. Our student loans are so burdensome that a trip like this would not be possible without a little assistance! Here’s to hoping for a trip of a lifetime!

    It sounds silly, but ever since reading Getting Stoned with the Savages: A Trip Through the Islands of Fiji and Vanuatu, I’ve *really* wanted to travel to Fiji. Which is only funny because the author will describe everything he can to dissuade you from living there. But I look forward to getting to know more about Fijian culture, and of course enjoy the islands’ unique beauty (hopefully, before it’s washed away too!).

  380. Vicky

    Imagine. Would really love to see it myself ! :)

    I want to visit Fiji because my absolute favorite water is Fiji Water. Over the years I have consumed the water, I have dreamed about visiting the place with palm trees and clear blue water. Oh, but there’s more! In Fiji, I would love to white water raft in the Upper Navua River and snorkel at as many beaches as possible. I would shoot pictures of the natural beauty on my dSLR and I would feature my visit on my blog.

  385. Chris & Angela

    I love to travel.. Plain and simple! I pretty much grew up on a plain since my father was in the navy. Being able to soak up a different culture is a life changing expierence and I miss it. Since returning to the states in 04 I havent been able to afford my passion since Im chef..a very underpaid but happy chef haha. I would forever be in your debt if selected! p.s. I would even take this oppritunity to propose to my wonderful girlfriend who has yet to see what the world has to offer outside the U.S.

    I’ve dreamed of going to Fiji ever since I saw the movie Truman show… I loved his explanation that you can’t get further away before you start coming back–and then I learned how beautiful it was. I have never used my passport, because I’ve been working to pay off student loan debt and get myself established in Los Angeles. But would LOVE to have a chance to go there for free thanks to Pause the Moment and Fiji Airlines!

    I always wanted to visit Fiji and thought it would finally happen in 2006 when I was briefly living/studying in Sydney, Australia. Unfortunately the political situation at the time meant it wasn’t smart to travel to Fiji during my short time period on that side of the world. Hopefully I can finally make it happen!

    Fiji, the land that I dream of. I’ve never been but have wanted to travel there since I was a young girl. I dream of the beautiful ocean, palm trees bending softly in the breeze, the culture, people, wildlife, food, the Uprising Beach Resort and all it has to offer, just everything Fiji! I’m ready to Pause The Moment and just enjoy!

    The South Pacific has always held a special place in our minds, probably from all the books and films and photos.

    I’ve been to Fiji once but it absolutely didn’t count since it was a four hour layover from Sydney to LAX. And the icing on the cake, I was fighting with my bf at the time so it was quite miserable. This would be THE ultimate make-up/vacation of the year :)

    Fiji..might just be the right place to go for an Anniversary trip to explore a beautiful island, beaches, and get that husband of mine out fishing. Hawaii’s on the bucket list too, but this sounds like a good contender. P.S. THe husband work grueling days with your Dad on the East Coast… He’d prefer working on his bucket list instead! Wishing Jack and me good luck on the contest :-)

    We have six children ( 4 boys and 2 girls). We never had any children together and when we got married on 2/2/02 we eloped and never had a honeymoon. I have researched Fiji and it’s many beachfront resorts and private islands. Fiji is said to be heaven on earth, with sunsets that are breathtaking, water that is crystal clear, and people who are welcoming. We would love the once in a lifetime chance to relax in paradise and make lasting memories.

    I have been struggling with my weight since the birth of my son 4 years ago. I am finally on the path to weight loss and I have been asking my husband to take me on a trip to Fiji when I finally meet my goal weight. Being that he is active duty military and I am a student, stay at home mom, and part time worker, we can’t afford a trip like this. It will take me about 10 months to lose this weight and I think that a trip to Fiji would be the best way to celebrate my accomplishments. Plus, next my 30th birthday is next July! It would be awesome to get this trip for that as well! Thanks and good luck to everyone!

    Jul 19, 2013 at 10:30 AM

    Who doesn’t dream of going to Fiji?! I’ve never been to the South Pacific and this would be an amazing opportunity for a romantic trip of a lifetime with my man. ;) Even though we want to, we rarely take long, exotic trips anymore due to work schedules but this Fiji trip would be the PERFECT reason to take some much needed time off! I can picture us now snorkeling…learning about the culture…witnessing the ancient fire walking ritual…I’m packing my bags now! :)

    Why do I want to go to Fiji? Why WOULDN’T I want to go to Fiji is a better question, and I can’t think of one reason. I have seriously never been on an airplane before, and I have seriously never traveled anywhere outside of my state except for one hazy roadtrip to Florida once back when I was in my 20′s. I’m 38 years old and I need some adventure! I teach first grade and I need some ME time! I’ve been married almost 8 years and we still haven’t taken a romantic trip together! My GOD! I’m pathetic! Please — take me to Fiji!!!

    Mary & I have dreamed of visiting Fiji for years, but the dream became even more profound after we A) got Scuba certified last November, and B) saw Matthew Karsten’s photos and video of diving in Fiji. We’ve reached out to Fiji Tourism a few times in the past, but never got much response. We would LOVE to visit the island and share our stories and videos of this ecotourism paradise with Green Global Travel’s readers.


    Jul 19, 2013 at 11:11 AM

    I dream of going to Fiji because I have seen so many photos and read books about Fiji’s natural beauty. I want experience the joy of seeing new plants and animals, as well as just relax.

    Jul 19, 2013 at 12:36 PM

    We’re retiring this year (I just did, my wife will in a few months; we’re 58/57). We’ll probably take a ~3 week “damn, we actually did it!” trip in October, but will hit the road seriously in January for a year plus of extended minimal-itinerary travel, with the goal of settling somewhere along that road. Fiji has long been one of the places on our list of places to check out, for the beauty, good people, great diving, good connections to the West Coast (we’re SF Bay folks), semi-reasonable housing prices, and it seems the right overall vibe. It’d be awesome if we could make Fiji the October trip because it’d give us a great escape-from-work initial chillout place, and some perspective to help us plot what we’d like in our first steps of the long trip…including a longer re-visit to Fiji for a true live-there test!

  483. Amy McGavock

    Jul 19, 2013 at 12:44 PM

  484. Debbie Green

    Jul 19, 2013 at 12:49 PM

    :>) My reason: I love the outdoors, the ocean and exploring new places. Fiji appears to be a romantic, exotic, friendly, and relaxing place to be. My husband and I have talked about going there, but it hasn’t fit in our budget. What a wonderful 30th wedding anniversary trip that would be! We have been married since December 10, 1983…..what a way to celebrate!!! Thank you for making this opportunity available!!

  485. Shelley Seale

    I picture Fiji as not just a destination that my girlfriend and I have always hoped to visit but thought was beyond our means, but secretly (and selfishly) I have dreamed of finding a tucked away beach and living like Tom Hanks in Castaway. I’d like to lay on the sand and see nothing but ocean and realize I’m on an amazing island in the Pacific with no one around.

    Unlike Tom Hanks character I’m not isolated and alone, and I’d get to enjoy the other amazing experiences Fiji has to offer. Plus ice, I’d get to have that. Suck it Tom.

    I am extremely passionate about our environment, and there is nothing like the BEAUTIFUL coral reefs in Fiji… I would love to visit the Islands, and take a little extra time to volunteer with a local organization that does mangrove planting or coral reef gardening — or another org that work to preserve the beautiful region. Give and receive… :) I would LOVE to go! Thank you!

    A trip to Fiji… I agree with everyone else’s
    comments. A dream come true, visiting a beautiful paradise with my husband, a man that I adore ( without our kiddos in tow), and being able to connect with him and nature in a way that few get a chance too. Not to mention the biologist in me would love to check out the local beauty.

    I dream of visiting Fiji because of the beautiful beaches, the huts on the water, the activities and the peacefulness of the islands. It is so romantic!!! I can’t wait till the day I actually get to go there with my husband and part of my bucket list will be complete. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    I have been searching for that “place that I belong” since I was a little kid, and I think Fiji might it. I’d love the chance to explore the culture & natural beauty of Fiji.

    Figi! Want to go to Figi to see if the photos do it justice
    Photos seem to be photoshopped these days
    Would love to see Figi in person! Pick me! And I promise not to ” fix ” the photos!

    My fiancee and I live 100 miles apart, have 4 kids between us and see each other maybe once a month. We fantasize about getting away together, someplace far far away, without the kids….so we can finally be a couple!! Fiji take us away! PLEASE!!!
