Whales and Dolphins / Wale und Delfine

A travel blog entry by hiwtvi


... einem Wasserfall wo sich ganz viele Babyrobben aufhalten und aufwachsen. Sie tollen den ganzen Tag herum uns spielen im Wasser. Einige liegen ganz faul auf den von der Sonne angewärmten Steinen herum und andere sind so neugierig, dass sie sich bis auf wenige Zentimeter an die genauso neugieren Besucher heran trauten. Wir hätten den ganzen Tag dort verbringen können. Es wurde aber langsam dunkel und wir wollten uns noch in der Stadt ...

Whale watching!

Rain was ******* in, drenching all our bedding so I ...

Making some underwater friends

A travel blog entry by evi21


... the water once the horn blasted. And so we did. I have to say, the first minute I felt a bit panicky. The water felt so cold I had to take a minute and get my bearings. But once looking underwater and spotting the first dolphin passing me by not even a meter, all thoughts of discomfort were completely forgotten. I started to make all kinds of crazy sounds to draw their attention. Some worked better than others haha, I felt like a complete idiot, but for a very good ...
