I got through the international security here at LAX three hours before my flight, and was able to do a short livestream from the Fiji Airways gate. I posed the question: What's the furthest you've traveled to see a natural reef. As you can see above, this one was significant. My furthest, in fact. And in Kilometers, it's 10600.75 km. That sounds even more impressive.
It's my hope that by 8:30 am Sunday morning, I'll be on Suvasuva, heading to join my group of friends to go diving immediately. It's been too long since I 'blew some bubbles' as the divers like to say. :)

Last February, I booked my trip from Dallas to Suvasuva, Fiji... and the entire time all was well. Until this morning, that is. I got an email mere hours before I'm about to depart, learning that the first leg of my trip has been pushed three hours later than my itinerary listed. That delay meant I would miss the second flight, which is the big one over the Pacific Ocean. Immediately I called the airlines to figure out what was going on, and was referred to the original company that provided this offer. The conversation was naturally frustrating, and took over an hour.
