But GREEN ISLAND was magic....we were fetched at the harbour and then giving 2 scooters to drive... Mmnnn=Problem=neither Cam nor I have ever driven a scooter - as you know I've been on the back of a scooter but never actual made it go by myself. All I can say - the de Bucks are fast learners (no chirping about my 14 year learning curve thank you!) - we hopped on and whizzed off behind the van...well I wobbled and nearly crashed - cornering is not my strong point.
Checked in, got the run down on our package and ran off to practice driving some more - really fun! Then a snorkelling trip which was superb - despite the fact that we had to ride our scooters in FULL wetsuits, life vests and booties! A hilarious sight - no pics! But we saw amazing fish, coral, caves and Nemo just a gentle stroll into the ocean - totally magical and I was entranced.
We ended with another night drive - the insects smacking into your face aren't a great bonus!!! and a BBQ (braai) which is funny - you choose your own food and cook your own food at a restaurant - not like 'home'! Shopped a bit - everything is open late. Very, very, very early the next morning, Cam & I hopped on our steeds and rode off in the darkness to 1/3 sea hot springs in the world - it was very surreal - a few people in man-made pools next to the waves at 04h30. Then I walked off to one of the natural pools as the sun peaked through and slipped on my butt - but no one saw! Mre people arrived so we left and took tons of photos of the stunning scenery around the island - it was a paradise for me after 8 months of city sprawl. I had the best tuna toast & tea in Taiwan and then we headed off back home way too soon. I'll be back though.
