New Speed Record...and another brush with death!

... a quick list of what we don’t like about the cruising life right now (despite the very obvious – almost dying once in awhile!): We both hate the constant heat and mosquitos. I add ‘things always breaking randomly and unexpectedly’ and the unpredictable and poorly forecast weather. Ginette hates ‘her hair everywhere’ and the rolly pollies at anchor. She has succeeded in figuring out yoghurt and sauerkraut on the boat now – but the herbs are ...

A On The Water

A travel blog entry by gail.koff on Apr 27, 2015


After spending 11 days at ports sightseeing and visiting temples and museums, it was time for a break! A day of snorkeling and boating was the right mix of relaxation and fun after so many days of observing cultures, history and Religious observances (churches, Buddhist temples, Taoist Temples, Confucius Temples and we even attended an Orthodox Jewish Shabbat service in Manilla, of all places...and yes, we women had to sit upstairs)! So ...

... can spend time doing more coding problems more quickly as well. Which will definitely be helpful when I get back to the States and have to start interviewing again! I went out for dinner and didn't really end up with anything good. I've had dinner the last two nights at this place right by the hostel where I got ginger chicken two nights in a row for 8 ringgit, which was good. But I didn't want to eat the same thing too many nights in a row - bad for the digestive system. ...

Diving with Scuba Junkie

... stick but the computer doesn't 'see' them even though they are there. Anyway enuff of that technobabble, back to the diving.

The three dives were on: Police Bay, Muka Point, and Ron's Reef.

I love tropical diving. The water is really warm and even at depth is around 30 degrees. You can dive in togs and a rash vest. You need very little weight as you don't have a thick wetsuit which compresses at ...
