Faces of Fiji

Lingo of Castaway Resort, Fiji

Lingo, also of Castaway Island, Fiji, was arguably the happiest, friendliest person I met in my life. He saw the positive side of everything and was so naturally accommodating, I felt comfortable enough to ask him for anything. When he heard that my watch was broken, he actually offered to be my alarm and knock on my door in the morning to wake me. He made each of us feel like we had a personal assistant, yet he was never too busy to chat for hours. I think Castaway found a way to clone humans and there were multiple Lingos because it seemed physically impossible to do everything he did for the guests of Castaway yet still have time to sit and sip his wine.

    Just took a look at the photos. They’re all really nice, but I especially liked that first one of you parachuting and the one of the blue fish on the second page. It’s a very rich color palette there. It would be hard to take a “bad” photo.

  5. Thank you for sharing your travels, enthusiasm and delight with us. and Thank you for being a kind supporter of my blog too! :~)

    Thanks for sharing what island life gives the local folks. Sorry to be away so long. After our South Africa trip, we came right back into the holiday season and family visits. Now back to winter garden prep while the ground is frozen in the Appalachian Mountains.
