If you had asked me 5 years ago whether I ever imagined living in the island nation of Fiji I probably would have answered, ” I wish”. Well here we are spending 4 months in this idilic corner of the world. Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t all rainbows and unicorns, but it is damn close. We are still looking for the unicorns.
Karen and I are living “partially” off the grid in a great little home on the Coral coast of Viti Levu , the largest island in Fiji. This first post on our life in Fiji is going to focus on the abundance of food available on the property.
Other than having to be very cognisant of our water usage, as we use two 5000 litre tanks for a supply which are filled by rainwater, the biggest challenge is trying to keep up with the supply of fresh fruit on the property.
There is absolutely no reason to go hungry here. We both are enjoying the connection to the land and the bounty it provides. Nature is a great source of food and I look forward to expanding our repertoire of fresh fruit dishes.
