ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO

No trip to Mexico is boring. In this story there are ancient Mayan ruins, festivals and fireworks, and the world’s dodgiest looking bar / sex den.

THE CANNIBAL ISLES

DURING THE GREAT AGE OF PACIFIC EXPLORATION THE FIJIAN ISLANDS WERE GIVEN A WIDE BERTH BY SAILORS SUCH AS CAPTAIN COOK BASED ON THEIR OMINOUS REPUTATION AS “THE CANNIBAL ISLES”. UNLIKE A LOT OF OLD SAILING STORIES IT WAS A REPUTATION WELL DESERVED. I FLEW FROM AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND TO LAND IN THE HEART OF FIJI, THE MAIN ISLAND CALLED VITI LEVU. I HAD FIVE DAYS TO STOP OVER HERE ON MY WAY TO MEXICO. FIVE DAYS TO AVOID ENDING UP IN A POT.

FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK

Always embarrassing when you run into Paul Hogan. Even more embarrassing when you lose another game of Knifey Spooney.
