Good Morning Jennifer,

Please accept my thanks, however belatedly for the very fine article you wrote about me in the May issue of Connections. I was very pleased.

And a big big thank you, or mina big esso (Torres Strait Creole version) for your efforts and time you have put to this-exceptional work, I don’t know how you manage to condense such a massive amount to a coherent article – especially as I am such a babbler!!! I am wondering how you made any sense out of the interview!!! You are obviously in the right career!!

 I had to stop reading your story about Ingrid several times before I finally finished it. Wow, you got it down, rock solid. She had such an authentic, passionate and positive attitude. Bravo author, bravo!

Dear Jennifer,

Many, many thanks for writing the fantastic article on Navini. It is very good. We are delighted and most flattered that you would write such wonderful things about your stay here. It is very kind of you and much appreciated. Particularly your comments about wanting to keep Navini a secret are most appealing to those looking for something special. I’d say it is a great start to your travel writing!

Vinaka vakalevu.

All the very best and we hope to have you back on Navini again sometime soon.

With kind regards,

Simone Daulaca.
