Fiji: The A-zen-aline Rush
The rage: Theory has it, when we experience “positive” stress from activities like bungee-jumping, the adrenalin influx releases endorphins; when this is then followed by relaxing experiences like meditation, the results are blissed-out relief. Hop on the bandwagon... on the pristine and private Laucala Island in Fiji. Check in to one of the villas hidden amongst coconut plantations, tropical rainforests and palmfringed beaches. Divers will be awed by the Great White Wall, a facade of white coral which turns an iridescent shade of lavender the deeper you go. Top off the day... with a trip to the Spa Garden where you can pick out your favorite spices and herbs to make your own essential oils and soaps.
