At Island Spirit, we have expanded our eco-tourism across the globe, but we never forget our humble beginnings in our beloved Fiji. Recently is has come to light that there is a new plague threatening this beautiful land, black sand mining.

I am about to embark on another exceptional new adventure! I will be cycling almost 1200 miles from the southern tip of England to the northern tip of Scotland, the Lands End to John O'Groats route following the Pennines to the East and a longer, more scenic route through Scotland. I am using the opportunity to raise funds to continue my support for the local communities in Fiji and the protection of coral reefs there, specifically to fund the training of three Fijian coral gardeners. Along the way I'll discover the island I was born on - about time really considering I know Sri Lanka and Fiji much better! I'll be sketching, writing and snapping away while taking notes on where to hold retreats and workshops in 2022.

Ever wondered what a day at our Wildcrafted Wellness Retreats looks like?

Imagine this...

Waking up to a locally picked banana and fresh coffee to set you up for a surf lesson, just a 5 minute tuk-tuk journey away. Returning to the sanctuary for a communal, silent breakfast with fresh smoothie bowls and coffee. Spend a few hours relaxing before joining our communal, traditional Sri Lankan lunch.

Take some time to explore the authentic, Fairtrade, craft and wellness workshops before a traditional Sri Lankan tea. Follow a mindful yoga session with more down time, perfect for meditation or simply exploring the area. Finishing up the day with a home cooked meal or street food adventure before returning to the sanctuary.

Our affordable, authentic, wellness experience has been designed to create flexibility and choice for those who are passionate about nurturing their bodies, mind and soul. You won't find this anywhere else.

Contact me for more information on how to join us on this wonderfully unique experience.

A Fijian Poem

Palm trees sway and chatter in the blue shadowy night.
As my gently clattering bicycle and I ascend the hill,
We lean on each other like old friends.
The summit reached and saddle filled,
Slowly I pick up speed as warm, island air strokes my coconut scented skin.
The moon, full and soft, soaks the waxy palm leaves as they shine and glimmer before the star filled deep.
'Chimbie' chimneys rise from teenage lips as groups smoke in the road.
Boys giggle, dogs bark, girls gossip.
Moce!!!
I’m home in Matei,
There is a swan in the clouds.

I've heard of similar issues in the South Pacific. We can't take anything for granted anymore, including the humble coconut tree which had hundreds of uses. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcqC03v409s

🤸Happy international women's day! 🌈To celebrate, we are launching our third fundraiser to buy reading glasses for five outer-island villages in Northern Fiji. These are some of the fantastic women who received glasses in 2019 so it's about time they received updates! Before they received glasses, some couldn't weave let alone read so we really are changing their lives. £3 pays for one pair of glasses and their all-important pouch. Please donate with the link in bio. ❤️🤗

With the recent news that STA travel have ceased trading in the UK because of Covid-19, we're wondering how on earth can we survive. BUT there is hope! If you run your own gig, remember that being a small business means you are VERSATILE and FLEXIBLE. You can ADAPT. If your cash flow isn't allowing it then fair enough, but until then you can open up to DIVERSIFY.
