Kellianne: Saudade

This unique Portugese word has no English equivalent, it is used to describe a sense of melancholy or deep longing for an absent something or someone that you love. Nostalgia is the closest definition in English, though saudade is a more intense emotion. I was born and lived in Fiji until I was four years old before migrating to New Zealand. So naturally I feel that both places are my home and I experience saudade when I am gone too long from either place.

Populated by family, friends and places, I will explore what makes up my life here in NZ and Fiji to see that home is not a physical place but something we create within ourselves and carry everywhere with us.

Day 3:

Breaking Fast

Domain, Suva, Fiji

The breakfast staple - long loaf fresh from the Hot Bread Kitchen accompanied by Rewa butter (seriously, the best tasting butter in the world). We would also have fresh pawpaw, eggs and fried eggplant from the garden.
