Kelly, 56 years, NSW

'I decided to book a solo trip as I had 2 weeks holiday and rather than stay home I was desperate for a break. Fiji was the perfect destination. I could have gone alone but checked out group options. Encounter provided a perfect choice.
The group I travelled with were fantastic, lots of activities and time to be alone.
If your considering solo travel can’t recommend Encounter enough. Your adventure awaits.'
