BOATS, SEA, SAND AND WET THINGS.

OR THIS IS ON MY MAIN SITE WHICH NAUGHTY OLD BIRDS ARE NOT READING. BAD BAD BIRDIES. I’VE ADDED SOME BITS, BUT THIS IS THE GENERAL IDEA FOR THOSE HOT WET TRIPS!!

Riding up to volcano in the midday sun.

Alert: In preparation for us escaping and flying free again.

The wet bits section…..

Nature reserve near Kuching at the end of the hike. No people swimming as a crocodile had been seen there that morning

Down and dirty at the beach. Swimming, snorkelling, diving, boogie boarding or just plain sunbathing? Onboard a boat for some fishing as well? Climbing and trekking around the coastline? Gazing out to sea? Breath in that air and get ready for your wet bits!

Sunrise on the Ganges in Varanasi India.

Plenty to do by the water rather than just sitting around. When you finish your activity its great to have that beer at the beach bar, or meal at a restaurant you’ve come across, or a lovely picnic of fresh produce you’ve picked up at a local shop!! You can sit on a boulder and look into a rock pool while you munch on your lunch. No judgement on your table manners, you’re alone and can be a piggy, there’s nobody to interfere or judge!!

Off to snorkelling!

That empty beach was mine all mine after a hike over the hill in the background! Safety first if in an isolated environment like this. Stranger danger, swimming alone and safekeeping of valuables will covered in later blogs where appropriate.

Beautiful rock formations too
Having a moment!

Top Tip: Sadly you do have to fear the worst in remote places. In the pic above I was burying my valuables in the sand in a plastic bag so I could go swim. I also wear a T shirt for swimming as i can’t always reach my back to put on sunscreen! Also if you notice someone hanging around it’s up and off time!!!!

Swimming with whale sharks

Well you dont have to go this mad. But you can!!! This is a time when you need swim buddies! Details of this trip will be linked later. Whale sharks are gentle giants by the way, no limbs were lost!

Pasta at the beach with clams and mussels is heaven. Something about the ozone in the air suits all fishy things which are bound to be super fresh!

My swimming buddy

I swam with this lovely turtle for twenty minutes out to sea. I was mesmerized. She waited for me each time I stopped swimming next to her. I fell in love with her beautiful and graceful gliding through the water, turning her head ponderously from side to side to eat jelly fish. Wet trip at its best but also most dangerous. I was so busy filming I hadn’t realised I had swum about a quarter of a mile out. I was told off by crew and suffered heat stroke after!

Beware the jelly fish

I’ve yet to find out the name of this huge monster (about twice the size of your head. The boat man said it was fine but……..if anyone knows the name let me know! I’ve been stung many times and yes, urine works in some cases, so does scraping. If however it’s a nasty one go straight to a life guard if there is one or get back to the locals who will help!

Cautionary tales are all the way through the blogs. I’ve learnt by bitter experience so you don’t have to!! I also got smashed in the head by a boat. The guy apologised profusely but that’s not really the point is it? You’ll see them in the form of ALERTS with a yellow background.

If you’re done here BACK TO BLOGS.
