I recently interviewed my friend Annie about her past trip to Bali, Vanuatu and Fiji. In the following interview, you can hear all about her trip and learn what she does to prepare for visiting a new country.
An American Girl in Transit: So Annie, tell me a little about your past trip! Where did you go exactly?
Annie: I went to Bali, Fiji and Vanuatu.
AAGIT: Wow! Why did you choose these places specifically?
Annie: My husband Sam had to go to Australia for work and he wanted to take a vacation there before his work actually started. However, I realized that it would be winter in Australia during July so it wouldn’t make sense to go then. Normally I prefer to travel to more undeveloped countries anyways so we decided to see what else was nearby. We first looked at Fiji, but then everyone kept telling us that Bali has so much more to see. Although Bali can get pretty touristy, I decided that it was still worth going to since they have such a thriving culture. Once we settled on Bali and I kept researching the area, I found Vanuatu, an island that has an active volcano, nice beaches and a huge local culture. So we decided to do Bali, Vanuatu and then end the trip by relaxing on a beach in Fiji.
