I forgot to mention how much we loved fiji. back home in the u.s. saving money so we can go back and build our house.
sandinmycrack replied on November 19, 2014 with:
I spent five months in fiji last year with my wife and 2 kids we spent a little less than we would have in the states, but to live the same kind of life you live back home your gonna go through some cash. Never looked for a job but i don't think theres much in the way of work. Most expats had touristy business in the town where we stayed and it looked like they had money before they got there

christine5 replied to the thread Permaculture Farms Fiji? on the Fiji forum:
FarmerOllie initially posted:
Hello to all! I'm preparing my move to Fiji coming this November and in research of farms that practice permaculture methods and principles. I am open to exploring anywhere within the islands so a specific location isn't a priority. I am a current farmer with experience and looking to reach out to farms in Fiji that are active and practicing permaculture. Greatly appreciate any names of Farms, people or suggestions that you might have. Thank you kindly, Oli

Hi Farmer Ollie Have you moved yet? Great to hear about someone interested in Permaculture. I am an Australian with land in Taveuni. It is a very rich volcanic island and is known in Fiji as The Garden Island. I suggest you look there if you want good rainfall (southern end). I have 8 acres there and it's a magic place. Ossie

Hello... I am new to this forum and am hoping to get advice from people who have relocated from the US to Fiji. I have been doing a lot of research and am leaning toward the Coral Coast area in Viti Levu. I am a yoga teacher and hope to secure a job as an instructor at a resort before I relocate. I would appreciate any feedback on good places to live in the area, prices, crime rate, shopping, etc. Thank you!!
christine5 replied on November 18, 2014 with:
Hi to all people relocating: Consider going to the Northern Islands. They are the most beautiful area. Taveuni in particular is unspoilt and clean. Suggest you look at the South end. Also Savu Savu is really special. Both places quite different to Viti Levu in terms of tropical terrain. More like Hawaii in the old days. I have been travelling there every year for 35 years. I have my place there for the Australian winter - it is wonderful.

I think litter is a better definition---In the cities -- countryside may be better as they burn or compost their garbage. Of course bottles & aluminum is recycled. Some people are coming directly from India as Itenerate cane farmers. Just remember you are in a poor third world country. I love Fiji and have been there 4 times now. The native Fijians are very friendly, lovely people. I want to retire there from the USA. I'm just investigating the tax consequences and Social Security income.

Hello, I'm a French wedding photographer based in New Zealand. I will be in Fiji from the 23rd April to the 11th May 2015 to photograph a wedding on the 25th Ap. While I'm there I would love to photograph some other weddings, and have contacted the resorts there but they can't help much at this stage. I am happy to give a very very special price and come back with some beautiful photos to add to my destination wedding portfolio. If anyone is interested or anyone has a suggestion, thank you to let me know :) www.anaischaine.com Kindest regards Anais

Expat Report Culture Shock in Nadi, Fiji was published
Culture-Shock-in-Nadi
Do you have any advice or thoughts about culture shock you would like to share?
Be prepared to go through the stages. Make sure you drive down to areas you plan to live in. Dogs just keep barking. Be prepared to pay more money for rent. Off Denarau, in a semi decent area you are looking at 2500+ for a 3 bed house... But you may have dogs and prostitutes nearby. Join clubs if you can and expect to pay a lot of money for a car, but you definitely need a car. (Continue)
Mike270 replied to the thread Taking Gold/Silver to Fiji / Buying/Selling on the Fiji forum:
Mike270 initially posted:
Hi, I'm considering moving to Fiji. I don't trust in paper money, so I put most of my savings into Gold & Silver. I found articles from 2008 that basically hint at a gold confiscation ( http://www.fijitimes.com/story.aspx?ref=archive&id=84205 ). Am I interpreting this right? Is it safe & sound to take gold/silver to Fiji? Can I buy/sell Gold/Silver anonymously on Fiji ? Thanks Mike
