Hi. This will be the shortest blog yet!!
I can sum what we did in 1 sentence......sunbathe, swim, eat, drink, and sleep!!!! Thats literally all we did for 2 weeks!!
Just a small story about the mantaray swimming!!! I have wanted to swim with mantarays for years....been on my bucket list! So we arrived at Mantaray Island and they told us that they were out of season so I was really bummed! However within an hour of being there they had been radioed saying there had been a sighting of them so me and amy jumped into the boat to go and swim with them!!! We soon spotted them and our fijian guide jumped in....he was so excited because he hadnt seen them for about 1 month! So we jumped in after him and as soon as we put our head under the water there was 1 right there....It was AMAZING! They are so graceful, the current was really strong but we managed to swim with it for a while and then we jumped back into the boat and followed it and then dived back in to catch up with it again! We ended up seeing 2 together and it was an amazing experience!! After our guide went to get some mangoes off a small island nearby and he brought back a huge bag full of mangoes and told me and amy that we had to eat them all before going back to our island (I dont think he was meant to go and pick mangoes....not really sure why) so I ate like 10 mangoes....I thought I was going to turn into 1....but they were so sweet and delicious!!!! When we got back to mantaray island our guide moored up the boat a bit out to sea and siad we will have a swimming race back, so we all raced back to the shore and I stood up at the end and did notice that our fijiian guide was staring at me.........then I hear amy shout "mate your boobs out!!!!!" I had totally flashed everything to our guide and he just burst out laughing......I was his new best friend then haha!!!!!!!!! Totally embarrasing tho!!!!
Thats all I have to say on fiji....we met a really nice group of people that we toured with for the whiole time and it was really sad to leave them all at the end!!
Love San Fran, just crammed it in to 2 days but its such a nic city and been to all the touristy places. Didnt make it to Alcatraz though because we didnt book (even though everyone told us to) we are just unorganised and we got there and it was all full up!!!! Our own fault but we went to a famous chocolate shop instead and are a massive sundae!!!! ha!!!!
We cant wait for thanksgiving now with all the cousins....we are so excited!!! See you all next week...crazy!!
