Welcome to the Jungle

Madison Kopack is a student at Rider University and is a current ISA Photo Blogger. She is currently studying abroad with ISA in Suva, Fiji. 

Fiji is home to some of the most beautiful rainforests, coral reefs and wildlife.  With crystal clear water, it is so easy to see undersea creatures that you wouldn’t get to see anywhere else.  The forests are filled with rare plant life and it’s very common to see waterfalls due to Fiji’s heavy rainfall. Here are a few of my photos that I was able to capture.

This was taken at Colo-I-Suva forest where there several natural waterfalls and swimming holes.  This has become a popular spot for everyone, especially on really hot days.

 

The forest is thriving with greenery, which makes every hike better than the last.  Except for all of the spider webs I had to walk through!

 

My ISA group was lucky enough to go snorkeling at Beqa Lagoon and explore the reefs.  (Far away from the spiders).

 

 

These are just a few of the fish we got to see on our snorkeling adventure.

 

My friends and I went on a weekend trip to Nadi where we stopped off at Natadola beach and found this rare blue starfish.  They can only found in the South Pacific region of the ocean.

 

The hostel we stayed at that weekend was right on the beach and we got to witness yet another Fijian sunset.  But this time with a few horses!

 

Stray dogs are very common in Fiji, but this one lives at the hostel we stayed at.  He’s living the life!

 

 

 

 

We found another star fish that weekend, except this one was a lot harder to find because it was camouflaged in the sand.

 

Even though it’s currently the wet season, there’s almost always a cotton candy sky around sunset, which makes the rain worth it!

 

The world awaits…discover it.
