Fiji. I was ecstatic when we decided to go to Fiji on holiday.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

I awoke to a thud and the noise of what sounded like thunder. The aeroplane had just landed in suva, capital of Fiji . I was ecstatic when we decided to go to Fiji on holiday. My family and I grabbed the bags from the overhead lockers and scrambled our way down the busy aisle towards the exit. When we got off the plane you could feel the intense heat almost immediately. The sun was gleaming down on my uncovered arms and legs and I began to feel a burning sensation on my skin. The runway was extremely small compared to the ones at Heathrow Airport, 2440 metres long to be exact. I'd read it in a book on the plane. It was like a small island floating on the sea. We were directed to a bus that would take us up to the airport where we had the go through Customs and collect our luggage. ...read more.

It was a beautiful blue-green transparent colour, It seemed relatively calm and you could just about hear the gentle swishing noises over the chitter chatter in the caf´┐Ż. I heard a local call out 'Fun Island, Fun Island', it was time to board the speedboat and proceed on the final lap of the journey to our desired destination. I was hoping it was going to be everything I'd imagined and was feeling excited. We made ourselves comfortable on a seat at the rear of the speedboat. I'd never been on a speedboat before so this was a new experience for me and I have to say I was quite excited. The engine roared as we sped off across the Indian Ocean. I could smell a faint whiff of diesel in the wind excreting from the boat. The boat bobbed up and down on the waves whilst the wind blew in my face cooling down my hot cheeks and my brother experienced splash back from the wavy water as he'd sat near the edge of the boat. ...read more.

Conclusion

As my confidence grew I swam towards the edge of the reef and along the way I saw the most amazing sea creatures there was a myriad of sealife below this aquamarine surface. It was like another World in the ocean, all the species of fish playing in the sea swimming here, there and everywhere. The colourful coral in different sizes and textures and shapes you would not imagine. Some coral looked like big bath sponges because of the thousands of holes they contained. I saw schools of multi-coloured fish that just let you swim through them and baby sharks that were only about 12-15 inches long but it was still scary, I looked around warily under the water and wondered where mummy and daddy shark was! The water was so clear you could see every little thing on the bottom of the ocean. I found snorkelling to be an unbelievably exciting experience. I'd had such a fabulous time on this holiday, But as they say, all good things come to an end. ...read more.
