Cancun og snorkeling med Hvalhajer

Turen gik først til Cancun, om morgenen før fanden fik sko på. Vi spiste morgenmad på en lille restaurant på havnekajen. Herefter gik den for fuld skrue i motorbåd ud til det område mellem, et sted mellem nordøst spidsen af Yucatán og sydvestspidsen af Cuba, hvor hvalhajerne befinder sig i juni måned. 190 more words


Well: finally some updates

Cruising around the Yasawa Islands - Bula continued

After my last night at Mantaray, I boarded the small boat that brought me and my luggage to the bigger catamaran in the deeper water. Every time the Fiji guys carried our heavy suitcases onto these small shaky boats and every time I was afraid they’d drop it in the water (they do get slightly wet on the boats and once they dropped another suitcase into the shallow water, so it’s probably smart not to leave the electronics in the suitcase). 1,615 more words
