While NZ might be full of awesome things to do in winter, for those of us drawn to the heat, a tropical island escape may sound more appealing….
Fiji is an island country located in the South Pacific Ocean, around 4 hours away from New Zealand. It is made up of more than 330 islands – majority of which were formed through volcanic activity. Fiji has long been a popular holiday destinations for Kiwis and those travelling through NZ, with its beautiful beaches, hot weather, friendly local people, easy 3-hour plane journey, and the benefit of being in the same time zone as New Zealand.
We’ve put together a list of why a visit to Fiji should definitely be on your list of things to do during your time in the southern hemisphere:
It’s close to NZ! Only 3 hours away. How often are you going to be this close to a beautiful south pacific tropical island?
White sand beaches with hot weather all year round. Need we say more?
The warm, welcoming nature of the Fijian locals. Fijian people are renowned for their incredibly friendly, welcoming nature.
Snorkeling and Scuba diving. Fiji provides some of the world’s best snorkeling and scuba diving.
Hiking – Fiji is home to some lush rainforest trails.

Today was my last day at INTERNeX. I had a great time here in Auckland and that was partly thanks to you all. It was great seeing you on the PuB NiGHTS, during weekends away when discovering the North Island, on the Christmas party or just in our office!
I learned a lot about INTERNeX and I really hope that I could be of any assistance for you whenever you came to me to see me!
So guys, I am off to the South Island and will start my life as a real backpacker from tomorrow onwards!
How is life in Auckland? I am doing great. I’ve 1 more week to go for my internship and then I will be traveling the south island, which I am very much looking forward to!
As I know that not everyone of you will be able to make it to the Christmas party on Saturday, we have decided to have another PuB NiGHT as well on Thursday. Just having a couple of drinks and anyone is welcome to come and go as they please. For those of you that are new in Auckland, the PuB NiGHT is a great way to meet new people and you can exchange experiences with other interns here in Auckland.
As it will be my last PuB NiGHT, it gives me the opportunity to say goodbye to all of you, in case I won’t see you anymore at the Christmas party.
As usual we will start in Rakino’s and move over to Cassette later on.
When: Thursday the 1st of December
Where: Rakino’s and Cassette
Meeting point: from 19:00 at Rakino’s (Level 1, 35 High St, Auckland CBD)
Hi everyone, it’s the return of the Picture of the Week with a photo that illustrates a fundamental rule with the sheeps here in New Zealand, you can notice too that they say nothing about the cow just above…
The picture has been taken on Waiheke island just before I assisted in a sheep shearing which was awesome.
Don’t hesitate to send us your pictures, either they are beautiful, funny, strange or whatever you find cool and the chosen one will be offered a beer or a glass of wine at the next Pub Night !
