Don’t despair as the Captains navigate around Nil Desperandum. Better enjoy the Bikinis and Atolls as we enjoyed the atolls and the light swimwear instead of warm duffle and raincoats. We love this hot region (the Ring of Fire), the hot weather, the hot meals and the hot music. And, of course, the hot crew from Little John to Big John!!! All the little fish and the big fish! We took thousands of beautiful photos, remembering rule number one: always use your MACRO! There aren’t just pilotfish for airplane pilots or doctorfish for doctors, Goliathfish around the big rocks, bumphead parrotfish, butterflyfish and angelfish but beautiful nudibranchs and critters of all sizes and colours. That we didn’t take a picture of the dead water buffalo floating by was a huge mistake but for compensation we got huge mammals in the blue water: melon-headed whales, sperm whales and blue whales! Every morning at around 6 o’clock we got up with a smile on our faces spotting dolphins leaping. But there were also fish jumping: big tunas – not all of them landed back in the water SASHIMI! 1 bell, 2 bell, 3 bell …….. the forth means we have to go home ….. Many thanks for a wonderful and unforgettable trip! It is with a heavy heart that Boat 2 says Goodbye! CAROLINE, RICHARD, GERHARD, ANKE, CARSTEN, SUSAN, ELAINE, Forgotten Islands, November 2014.
