If I had unlimited funds, I would move to Fiji. Fiji is so remote and exotic, a perfect place to forget about the small things and truly focus on the important things in life. I think about all the hustle and bustle of life as a wife, daughter, student, friend, and a Technical Writer, and I just wonder how to simplify life. It is easy to look at the lives of other people and show them how to get their life back to basics, but it is much harder to do that on your own.
Living in Fiji, a large portion of the homes do not have electricity the same way we do in the United States. Some of the houses have none at all, some have a very limited amount of solar panels, and some also have generators for emergencies when a few hours of light is necessary.
Of course there are some amazing homes in Fiji, where people have created their dream oasis on the island. For me, moving to Fiji would be about finding what is really important and learning how to survive with my own ideals and wishes. Looking to buy homes in Fiji was astounding. A lot of the descriptions list the fruit trees and the vegetables already growing on the land. Being able to wake up in the morning, looking out at the ocean and then going to pick fresh fruit from your own tree…sounds perfect.
One day I will go to Fiji and I hope it’s better than my imaginary adventure.
