Enough of the moaning, it's far too British and besides I did actually have a good time! First Off, for me, it was fascinating to see the group dynamics and to observe the establishment of the cliques that inevitably happen. Here are a few examples, first established was the cool young group (I luckily fell into that category?!), then there was the girly girl group, golden oldies, middle aged sun tan lotion experts and finally the bonkers Slovakian
Wow that took some explaining! Right secondly, activities: most of the days were spent sunbathing and snorkelling. The snorkelling and swimming was especially good, i saw some amazing coral in places where hardly anyone swims and thoroughly enjoyed swimming with sting rays and turtles. Oh and I suppose one other highlight was seeing Komodo dragons!!! I visited both rinca and Komodo Island where we were taken on a guided trek to see the awesome beasts. FUN FACT: after you've been bitten by one you have 1 week to live as it's the bacteria in their mouth that kills you! Anyway also found out that they are pretty fast so I told everyone to wear flip flops whilst I wore trainers.... Muuhahah in the words of Grandpam "always male sure there is someone slower than yourself, that way they get eaten first". I digress, I also enjoyed our trek to a waterfall and visiting various beaches where I planned what my own island would have when I bought one!
The evening activities involved small amounts of alcohol and group bonding.
All in all the trip was good fun and a personal highlight was swimming with a turtle for 10 minutes whilst he looked and me and said "you totally rock dude!" (Finding nemo quote)
