Tim Roxborogh goes off the rails in Fiji
It's hard not to be drawn to a story involving a century-old, abandoned railway in the tropics and a Kiwi with a crazy idea. It's especially hard when you learn said railway has been reinvented as an acclaimed modern-day eco adventure tour. That said, it was pretty much the sum total of my knowledge of Ecotrax on the Fijian Coral Coast before I arrived for my three-hour pedal 'n' swim escapade, but it was enough. Enough to know this would be fun, but without any real concept of just how rewarding.
