During the election week the office was closed, and we were encouraged to get out of Galle. We were lucky enough to head to the Maldives for a few days with one of Murrays workmates. We stayed on Giravaru Island, a very beautiful island, small enough to walk around in 10 minutes. 5 steps from our door was the beautifully clear inviting ocean. We enjoyed snorkeling with many beautiful fish, and the boys even swam with some turtles. All in all, a very relaxing and enjoyable time (despite the occasional rain).
Our overseas move started in 2005, with a brief vacation in India. Then we joined the Tsunami relief team in Sri Lanka for a couple of years. We have just finished 8 1/2yrs being based in Nairobi, Kenya. Now based in Geneva, Switzerland with Murray in a global role still travelling around to the hot spots. Hoping to make the most of being in Europe.... full info
This is the catch.Unfortunately the little red fish in the left hand corner is mine (Miriam). Sorry NZ Fisheries Officers! I begged them to let the fish go. Explaining it was far too small. But they just smiled and nodded, and put it into the container we were taking back to the island. Sorry :(
New Friends.We meet a lovely Dutch couple and a Russian guy who we spent most of our time with. Snorkelling and playing pool, not much else to do on the island.
