Off to Vorovoro for two weeks!

FIJI | Friday, 4 July 2008 | Views [1134]

Today I am leaving to fly to Labasa, the largest town on the second biggest island of Fiji, from where I will be met by someone from www.tribewanted.com and I will then make my way to my home for the next two weeks, on the remote island of Vorovoro (try and find it on a map!), where I will become part of the tribe there! Yeay! Please visit the website and make yourself familiar with the project. You can create an account and join for free to take part in online discussion about the direction of the project and you can even have a say in how the island is run from the comfort of your armchair (or office chair...ahem...). I'll be writing blogs whilst there, in my note book or on the laptop if I get long enough stints with power out there. So a FULL blog will appear after the two weeks is up (unless I can get to an internet connection during my stay). Needless to say (and as those who know me best can testify) I will be making the absolute most of my time on the island and will get involved in as much as I can and try to get to know everyone there during my time. Hopefully I can leave my stamp on the place, even if it is just a fond memory for some of the remaining tribe members. I met someone last night in my hostel who has just come back from there and they loved it, and they tell me that the founder of the whole project will be arriving with me tomorrow... pretty cool!

Wish me luck! Please feel free to comment on any of my blogs, or to drop me a line at sl0ggs@gmail.com if you want to get in touch. I'll be back online soon!
