Candi Leigh

Current Rock of Residence:

Fiji

Island Girl Since:

2012

Originally Hails From:

South Africa

Candice was bitten by the travel bug when her career in the spa and wellness industry took her to work in safari parks in the Kruger National Park and famous South African golf courses where she met many international guests who inspired her to dream big and take a leap abroad. Her current rock of choice is Fiji, where she shares her home with her partner and her playful rescue fur baby Juni.

Previously Candice had been residing on several bits of sand in the Maldives which were not more than 1.5 km x 500 metres. She writes stories of everyday first world problems that she experiences in her island life. Her hobbies are yoga, massage, and snorkeling – and being on an island is the perfect place to pursue all of them.

Having a very caring nature, she believes there is good in all human beings, but some just test that theory far too much. She is active on Instagram and would love to share her picture perfect (and not so perfect) memories with you.

When she’s not loving island life and needs a break, she visits her home in Australia or her family in South Africa. Although she loves traveling, there really is nothing like “home.” No matter which one she visits, they are all special, including her small island home.

Island Fur Mommas Are Moms Too

I may not be suffering from the baby blues but for you moms out there, spare a thought for the dog rescuers who can’t bear to see another Fijian dog on the streets. I anticipate that I will be rescuing many a fur friend in life on this rock, but if I didn’t where would this exciting content come from?
