This is Suva, another stop on the Princess Majestic cruise to the Fiji Islands, Jan 21-Feb 04, 2020. There are 12 of us so far going, come join us. 702-981-0445
Suva (soo-va) is the heart of Fiji, home to half of the country’s urban population and the largest city in the South Pacific. It's a lush green city on a hilly peninsula, that gets more than its fair share of rain, and has a vibrant cultural scene.
Suva is the Capital City of the Fiji Islands. With a population of around 250,000 people, the city boasts some of the major happenings in Fiji. Some of this includes the very famous Hibiscus Carnival which happens every August, the Fiji Showcase which is Fiji's largest trade and event show, and the Parliament House where the political issues are handled.
Visiting the Fiji Museum located in the Botanical Gardens will enable you to see some of the archaeological collection dating back to almost 3,700 years. Items on display range from musical instrument to cooking apparatus and jewelery.
Massive Inflatable And Glowing "Aliens" Are Invading This California City Next Month
They're the size of a building!
Have you ever walked around town to suddenly be faced with a giant glowing human-like figure? Don’t worry, this isn’t an alien invasion. It’s art! Giant glowing humanoid figures are taking over Los Angeles this month and it’s all we wanna talk about.
If you haven’t already heard, these huge light installations are coming to downtown LA’s FIGat7th shopping plaza. You can check them out from October 30 to November 10. It’s free to attend from 11 am to 11 pm.
While you can see them during the day, we highly recommend going at night when they are all lit up. It’s kind of spooky and ephemeral, but that’s definitely the point.
definitely the point.
Wondering what brought them here? They’re part of a public art installation called “Fantastic Planet.” We’re stoked that the super-talented Australian artist Amanda Parer decided to bring them to our city.
The description of “Fantastic Planet” is pretty clear. These aren’t gentle giants. They’re symbolic of how fragile our natural world is and the role we play in it. Deep stuff.
We dug a little deeper and found out the sculptures are based on a 1970s Czech-French film called La Planète Sauvage. This movie’s plot centers on a dystopian future where humans are considered to be a feral race.
Another Glamping Adventure that I want to take, but not in the wintertime. This is the Whispering Pines Covered Wagons Glamping www.wpglamp.com
Experience the Wild West in Luxury!
Centrally located between Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, Lake Powell and the Grand Canyon lies a secluded, modern pioneer village. Travel back in time and experience the wild west but in luxury. Come experience the towering ponderosa pines, bubbling water falls, flowing grassy meadows and grazing mule deer.
Who wants to join me in the Spring? What a fun weekend!
