A dream comes true ... a week at the Maldives (Fulidhoo Island)

 It was just a week, but we had a wonderful time in a small b&b on an even smaller island ... the underwater world was fantastic!

My advice would definitely be - ditch the expensive resorts and just head for an inhabited island, for a more comprehensive and authentic Maldivian experience ... just try to avoid Ramadan, if you can!!

Xmas and New Year off the beaten path ... Sao Tomé


It was a long road, but after over two years of planning and struggling, we made it to the wonderful, mysterious and very little known island of Sao Tomé ... nature and wildlife were stunning, but what I will remember the most was the people ... warm, friendly and often very, very attractive!! The kids were so sweet, maybe materially poor but definitely not miserable ... Sao Tomé, you made a big impression on me and I sincerely hope to be able to make it back one day ...

After a covid-related break ... finally a serious trip abroad ... to the Caribbean side of wonderful Costa Rica

 First stop - the peaceful Tortuguero ... such wonderful wildlife!

and then 11 days in Puerto Viejo & surroundings ...

... after a shitty 2020 and a not very good start of 2021, this chilled country was exactly what we needed ... pura vida everybody!!
