This experience was special, no doubt...
KAIKURA - DAY 2
I was really glad to hear about my whale tour finally going on 6:15 in the morning, after it was canceled twice the day before... I got on the bus and on the boat, and then...
Then they said something about "some people just not being suitable for the sea, and that's what those paper bags in front of you ar for". well, let's just say I used those bags a couple of times, and sometimes without the bag at all... Awful, really. And we didn't get to see much of the whale anyway. It was nice, really, but not worth not the money and not the feeling. And of course I had antisickness pills and didn't remember to take them before the trip..
Then came the real action - the dolphin swimming! it was as incredible as everyone says - just swimming among hundreds of dolphins, and swimming in circles with them, and then seeing them do the sommersaults (flipflops above the water, front and backwards) really up close - amazing! never had anything like that. I also got a bit seasick, but only in the end and I really enjoyed it. It was also very beautiful, and I'm sure those who could drink the hot chocolate and eat the cookies afterwards really enjoyed them. no use for me, though - I would just recicle them... :( but it was still great fun. pics of the dolphins are a lot harder, so I got movies. They're too big, I'll try one but it probably won't work anyway.
Now I'm in Nelson, and tomorrow I'm going kayaking in Abel Tasman national park. I'll take those pills this time, even though it's not necessary in that... I'm not taking my chances!
