Greetings from very sunny Egypt! 

Today I’ve spent the day diving! So much fun. I’m so glad I actually took my open water certificate (and advanced) while in Thailand. It has opened up another world to me :) 

And today, on the way to the first dive site, we saw Dolphins!!! So exciting. I love dolphins but have never seen any before. They looked so happy. 

I’ll do some more diving tomorrow. I did film a lot during today’s dives, but haven’t looked at it yet. And I tried to upload a photo with this post, but the Internet at the hotel is the worst, so I couldn’t. I’m happy if this entry gets posted. 

Still here

It’s that time of year again. No, it isn’t vacation time I’m talking about. I have to wait another month for my vacation to start. I’m talking about the time of year when I have to renew my subscription for the domain a nomad at heart. The site might be a bit weird for a couple of days until it’s up again, but it’ll remain at this address for at least another year.

Even though I don’t update very often any more I don’t have the heart to let it die. So I renewed it again.

I did however manage to delete some settings, so it looks a bit different now. But I’ll fix it. Not now though, because I start work at 7 am tomorrow morning… I also have 2,5 weeks of vacation in August that I need to plan. So I’ll be back soon.

Aqaba

 

So, I haven’t updated much lately. Mostly because I haven’t done much traveling. That’s the downside of working a normal job. But I do like my job, so I shouldn’t complain too much.

The reason to why I’m updating again right now though is that I’m having a week off of work. Currently I’m in Aqaba in Jordan. Arrived yesterday afternoon so haven’t done much yet. My brother is with me and we’re staying at the Intercontinental hotel in Aqaba. Yesterday we only had time for a quick swim in the pool, a meeting with the travel agency to book some trips and then a yummy dinner.

Today we’ve spent the day in the sun. First a few hours on the beach (50 m from the hotel) and then a few hours by the pool (just behind the palm trees on the picture).

Here’s a picture of the view from our hotel room by the way. It’s got a weird area outside our “balcony”, looks like it could be used for something, but there’s never any people out there… The pool area is right below it. Lovely view. Israel to the right, Jordan to the left (further down is Saudi Arabia).

Now we’re heading out for dinner. Don’t know where yet, but we’re going to head over to the “restaurant street” and find somewhere. Tomorrow we’re going on a trip to Petra! So exciting.
