Introduction

I was visiting friend's family in Fiji. Was going to travel extensively, hence left the DSLR home and took along Canon SX50HS. All photos taken with that camera.

Parramatta Night view

Flight was very early, asked a friend to drop at the airport.

Check-In and Immigration

I could not select seat while booking. At the check-in, I request a window seat. Had no issues with immigration and security headed towards the boarding area.

Seating area for restaurants.

Since this was my first trip to Fiji, was advised by friends that to have meal before boarding.

Immigration and Custom

After entering the immigration area, there was a group playing music. Immigration queue was short. I was asked by immigration officer purpose of visit in a friendly way. I answered his question in Hindi. Had my passport was stamped and said to enjoy the trip. I thanked him, headed to collect baggage. Since I had nothing to declare. Walked out of terminal to be picked by friends.
