Water-bungalow, a once in a lifetime experience, which was well worth it. The resort was great, but we spent most our time snorkeling around & under our bungalow. Got a few new finned friends, although the language barrier was a very big obstacle. Also gesturing with hands & feet proved to be problematic. Nora saw a huge ray (I ignored her garbled screams, thus missed it) and we met the Aggro-Fish from the Cook Islands again. At certain times of the day, they just keep attacking, even biting, you if you come too close...

There wasn't much outside of the resort. People are actually looking at you in a weird way, like "what are those guys doing walking around, outside their hotel???". And why do people (from the hotel) assume we're Mr. & Mrs. Räber?? I mean, we haven't even had THE TALK yet... Maybe I wanna be Mr. Seppälä, or Nora Mrs. Seppälä-Räber (or whatever other combination of our names you can come up with)... Actually, at our next hotel we were greeted as Mr. & Mrs. Seppälä, so now we know how both versions sound.
