Really beautiful and still inhabited with (yes) real nones, this site has been listed because it is in (re)construction since the 7th century! After this refreshing visit, we thought that driving the famous […]

The Pinnacles

The Pinnacles, the one sight I remember most (maybe the paradise bird dance – but that was in Papua New Guinea) from Planet Earth when David Attenbourgh is narrating about Borneo! What he does not tell is that they got there by helicopter and that getting there on foot involves quite a lot sweating and […]

Mosquera & Seymour

New spots, new guide, new luck!? We try, the first dive site is supposed to be a very good site to spot white tips and hammerheads, the second to see Rays (eagle, golden and maybe manta). After a semi-complicated start caused by the new girl that didn’t have enough weight and the DM loosing her, […]
