Castaway & Rescue

After passing the ‘Castaway’ island we talked about the movie and what had happened to Wilson.

The next day we landed on Levu and came across Wilson’s Kiwi cousin Gilbert. He had been there for some time and was very pleased to be saved by some kiwis.

We brought him back to Kapowai and listened for hours to his tales of shipwreck, hunger and desperation as he battled to stay alive on his own.

Here our hero relaxes with a beer, we had some as well.
