When the alarm went off at 5:15 am it almost felt like being home again and we had to go to work. ALMOST we said! Instead of work, we were going on a dolphin tour, poor us 😉
There was no time for breakfast but instead we hurried to the beach to catch our boat at sunrise.

-

The beautiful sunrise was amazing – everything was calm, the hills and surroundings were swept in a mystical mist and the color of the sky changed from blue to red and orange…

Our boat sped through the water to get to the perfect location.

-

Being at pole position Greet was trying to spot the first sight of dolphins.

-

-

Together with dozens of other boats we started to reach the spot and after a while shouts rose as the first dolphins were spotted.

We were lucky this morning as we saw a lot of dolphins,

and the young ones playing 🙂

The dolphin tour was really amazing and we were very happy!
After breakfast we decided to go on a snorkeling trip to the reefs just outside the hotel. The snorkeling was ok with beautiful fish but the corals did not look so great and were unfortunately dead in many places. We both saw some new fishes we hadn’t seen before but we saw also classics like different kind of parrot fishes, surgeon fishes and Fredde’s favorite the small blue, white and black striped cleaning fishes (they clean the other bigger fishes).
After the snorkeling trip we got a little present from our hotel 🙂

and we enjoyed it on our porch.

We spent our last evening in Lovina by once again going into to the village for some dinner. This time we found a pizza restaurant and enjoyed our slices on a roof terrace.

Our stay at Aditya has been wonderful, just like our previous places. The best part of our trip so far is that everything has been unique and special but common to all the places is the excellent service, kindness and the beautiful surroundings.

  1. Hallo lieve kids
    Wat super om al deze mooie dingen mee te maken.
    Wees je wel bewust dat jullie echte bofkonten zijn.
    Geniet dan ook van iedere minuut, en knijp je af en toe in de arm,
    of het echt allemaal waar is wat je mee maakt.
    Zelf kan ik ook genieten dat jullie het zo naar de zin hebben.
    Maak van iedere dag een feestdag.

    Liefs Pa/ Henk

  2. Hej igen!
    Vilken fantastisk dag ni har varit med om.
    Även om ni fick gå upp tidigt på morgonen så var det säkert
    värt jobbet. Att gå upp riktigt tidigt en morgon innan “livsandarna” hunnit
    morna sig då får man uppleva det fantastiska i naturen, säger de som vet.
    Den här upplevelsen som ni varit med om i dag kommer ni säkert att bära
    med er under lång tid framöver.
    Det är bara att önska er, ta till vara och njut av livet.
    Ha det riktigt bra
    Kramar
    Mamma & Pappa

    • Hej!
      Det var definitivt värt mödan! Det var helt underbart! Allt från soluppgången till att se delfinerna leka.
      Vi njuter till fullo!
      Ett stort grattis på födelsedagen från oss båda och från familjen Aanstoot med respektive familjer!
      Kramar, Grette & Fredde

      We are glad you like them.
      Oh, we can imagine Jente likes the dolphins, tell her that we love them aswell, some were as close one time that you could almost touch them… but most of the times they were far away.
      We wish you the best 30th birthday!!! …and welcome to the 30+club!
      And we will convey your greetings to Bitte (if she happens to miss them here 😉 )
      Lots of love from us both, and small kisses back to Jente!

  4. Hej, ser inte fel ut! 🙂 Här är det bara grått och inget ljus alls just nu!
    Att stiga upp tidigt är inget problem om man upplever fina saker..

    Ha det trevligt / veul leut zoals wij in Brabant zeggen!

    Hälsningar från familjen Gassner/Kanters (Mies hälsar också)

    • Hej!
      Nej, det är helt underbart! 😀
      Vilket tråkigt väder… vi hade iaf hoppats på lite snö när vi kom hem!
      Vi ses snart, ha det riktigt bra och ge Mies en kram också!
      Kramar, Margreet & Fredde

  5. Hi, dolphin watching must be very cool and you took some very nice picutres. Yes we remember the snorkeling not being very nice. As you said, great fishes but destroyed coral reefs. It’s much nicer down at 12 meters! Hugs from the three of us.
