After 16 years I have finally got in to the ‘island time’ way of life. In Fiji they call it Bula Time, in Vanuatu it’s simply Vanuatu Time, in Samoa it’s Fa’a – the Samoan way of life. And there’s something to be said for it – I’ve learnt that everything will eventually happen, but maybe not on time (whatever that means in the Pacific). When I first moved to Vanuatu delays with normal everyday things used to frustrate me. But not anymore (well, most of the time) because I realise that whilst it may take longer to get something done, the weather is going to be warm, the water views will be spectacular, and I’ll always be greeted with a big island smile. So why worry? It’s the Pacific way of life and I’m so glad to be a part of it.
