Mondriki and Yanuya Islands

Today we spent the day in Mondriki and Yanuya. Mondriki is the island famous for housing Tom Hanks and Wilson from the movie Cast Away and Yanuya is home to a Fijian village.

Along the way, we enjoyed the boat ride and saw a lot of other islands.

The sand was hot but Paul said he could get under his tree fort


The visit to the Fijian village of Yanuya was touristy but we really enjoyed it. We experienced another kava ceremony and since Paul was elected Chief of our group, he got to have more kava! The Fijians are so friendly, it's really hard not to want to support them so yes, we bought more souvenirs.
