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.’
