From New Zealand to Remote Fiji for Father and Son

Destination Dreaming’s Program Director Clint Miller, led our first Family Tree Program for 2012 in April.

Clint was joined in the Fijian highlands by father and son, Tony and Matt, from Rotorua in New Zealand. Over 7 days, Tony and Matt immersed themselves in the local village life; learning about the family-oriented community, participating in a traditional welcoming ceremony, rafting on a bamboo bili bili, trekking and spending time in the local kindergarten.

Listen to Tony and Matt talking about their experience in the clip below:

At the conclusion of the program, 51 year old Tony said ‘Clint is a great leader and facilitator. The Fijian village experience was an opportunity of a lifetime and the people are so friendly. I highly recommend Destination Dreaming to any father wanting to connect with their children. 19 year old Matt said that ‘it was an enlightening experience and I can’t wait to come back.’

Clint said ‘the program was inspiring to be a part of. Tony and Matt rediscovered the joy and power of the father-son relationship and are on the journey to having an awesome time together and not taking life so seriously.’ Since returning from Fiji, Clint has been in regular contact with Tony and Matt and their transition from village to home life has been overwhelmingly positive.

We send a special vinaka vaka levu (thank you very much) to the Nasokia family and all the amazing people of Nasivikoso for welcoming us into their community and making the program the huge success it was.
