Barefoot Cay

Roatan, Honduras

Have you ever gone to the beach just to lay down and sleep in a bungalow? If yes, then you should be going to Barefoot Cay. This beach is located in Roatan, Honduras. It is the perfect lazy getaway after a long and hardworking week in the office.

Barefoot Cay has the perfect weather for relaxation, after being hammered all day, all week. Just because this place invites all disinclination to do something, do not dare to miss snorkeling or scuba diving in the Barefoot Cay. The private cay has beautiful coral reefs and marine life, which makes it ideal for these activities. And, don't forget to experience the luxurious one-bedroom bungalows in the beachfront. This houses have excellent amenities such as full kitchens, bathrooms, showers, and wicker furniture. There are two-bedroom villas as well which have spacious covered decks which are overlooking the beautiful sea. Strictly for the lazyheads at heart.

Snorkel Junkies of Sibuan!

Semporna, Malaysia

First of all, many apologies for the numerous pictures of tranquil blue waters, desert islands and joyful children playing with toy wooden boats!

Cette fois-ci pas beaucoup de texte mais beaucoup de photos (sachez qu'il y a plein d'autres photos que celles visibles sur le blog dans la partie photo, dont voici le lien).


So where are we? Well, take a look at the map and you will see that we are in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. We arrived in Tawau and made our way towards the famous coastline where islands and sand-banks such as Sipadan, Mabul, Mataking and Kepalai can be found. However at over 70euro just to go snorkeling on Sipadan and 300euros [per person per night] to stay on Kepalai, we found ourselves on a cheaper alternative.

A day-trip to Sibuan, a tiny island [as you can see] inhabited by some gypsy travellers from the Philippines and a handful of soldiers. We spent a fantastic day doing nothing except; snorkel, swim, relax, hide in the shade, walk around the island and of course get to know the locals! The children were a sight to behold! It must also be said that so far we have been astounded by the calm friendliness of the people that we have met here. Well this is a short entry just to let you know what we are doing so, bye for now and back to our cheap insect-infested hostel [what a contrast!]...

Nous sommes sur l'ile de Borneo, dans la region de Sabah en Malaisie. De Tawau nous avons rejoins Semporna, endroit bien connu des plongeurs car cette ville permet d'atteindre un des spots les connus au monde, Simpadan (mais aussi Mabul, Kepalai, Mataking). Il faut un permis pour entrer sur ces iles, et il se paye assez cher! Malgre cela, il y a une liste d'attente pouvant aller jusqu'a 2 mois et demi pour plonger la-bas. Nous on voulait simplement faire une sortie de snorkelling qui convenait a notre budget. Nous nous sommes retrouves sur la petite ile de Sibuan habitee illegalement par quelques gitans des mers (qui sont toleres par les autorites...enfin jusqu'a ce qu'un luxueux resort soit construit sur cette ile, ce qui ne devrait pas tarder!), et aussi un poste de douaniers pour controler ces fameux permis.

Journee exceptionnelle a faire du snorkelling, marcher sur la plage et rencontrer les enfants de l'ile. On etait vraiment dans un paysage de carte postale. C'etait tellement bien qu'on n'a pas regrette les sites plus connus qui du coup sont aussi plus frequentes. Bon... ce qu'on ne dit pas c'est qu'apres on a du rentrer dans notre chambre ultra basique pleine de cafards geants et moustiques a Semporna une ville plutot sale. Dur le contraste!

Like we said, sorry!

My entourage

Dumaguete, Philippines

A head cold [that made me the most avoided passenger on the airplane] was keeping me out of deep waters. With a stuffy nose one cannot equalize pressure in one's ears. Snort! So I snorkeled instead. The guest House was offering a trip to a local island and I signed up. We had two guides from the guest House, both men. We were a group of 5 of which I was the only female.
