Making the best of it

... his guitar. With it being cold outside, the fire on and the Irish music playing I felt like I was in Dublin! Mad how things can be recreated like that. We got back to the hostel about 9.15pm and it was really quiet. Think everyone had headed to bed! I got a final beer and sat on the picnic tables outside talking with Jess about the real world when we finish travelling.

Whale rider

... here actually feed at night (as that's when their preferred food drifts up from the deep ocean trench offshore), so the daylight hours are also their playtime. Even so, you are fully warned before hand that these are totally wild animals, not trained or fed or rewarded for human interaction, so the key is to engage their interest and their natural curiosity. We got suited up (getting better at getting in and out of wetsuits now!), and headed of to the boat. We weren't out ...
