Again, a small town by UK standards but nice.   Full of ‘extreme’ sports and activities, something for everyone.   Our first port of call was the Snowboarding rental shop, which one to chose?   Their like pubs in an English town Centre, one every ... Read more >

Well, were on our way.  We decide not to do the 'were packing and getting excited' bit and thought we would start when were on our way. Were sat in our LA Hotel writing this, so that's half way to Fiji, the flight over was good; no 'lumps and bumps' ... Read more >
