“The Circle Island Tour of Viti Levu” (Viti Levu Island, Fiji – December 28, 2005)

“High Tide? Or Low Tide?” (Namosi Highlands, Fiji – December 27, 2005)

Norway Waterfalling Binge Itinerary – June 20, 2005 to July 9, 2005

This itinerary summarizes our trip in Norway, which was sort of a follow-up trip hot on the heels of our real eye-opener in New Zealand. This was one trip where I really wished we had more time because this was an extremely waterfall-centric trip…

Rovijokfossen

Rovijokfossen (I’ve also seen it spelled Rovvejokfossen and Ruvijokfossen) was the last waterfall we saw on our epic June-July 2005 trip to Norway. Also, it could very well be the waterfall that…
