GREAT FEEL HOTEL

Beautiful Friendly Burma
Hi Linda You might recall talking to Janet and I over breakfast at the great feel hotel. We are the couple from Australia. We have been inspired by your blog and will continue to travel as well when ever we can. its been our fourth trip to Burma and love it even more each time we visit. Yes the Strand hotel is a lovely old hotel full of colonial charm. it was owned by the same family that used to own Raffles in Singapore.Will keep reading your adventurous blog for wonderful inspiration you provide older travellers. Best wishes for safe, healthy and happy travels. look us up if you ever visit Australia. kind Regards Jim & Janet.

Thank you for your great help. It made my trip even more wonderful...As you will see, I also got to Lake Inle and Bagan, although I probably could have made it a little less trouble if I had a checked a map before choosing my route.

Good for you for making the best of your situation. I’ve read how much you love to dive. Maybe it was the heavens slowing you down a bit for a rest? Happy New Year.

Wow :)
Hi! Wow, just wanted to say thank you for sharing! I fell on this site quite randomly searching the web for informations but also reviews of the galapagos, the diving and the boats! I'm actually pretty decided to take the family there next year and perhaps some of us want to take a diving cruise in order to get loootttssss of diving in :) Seeing these pictures confirm my idea! I've seen the Astrea boat on this site https://galapagos-liveaboard.com/galapagos-diving and it seems legit, normally prices compared to others and still good quality! But there's other interesting boats.... ahhh so hard to make a choice! Any recommendation / anything you've heard about a boat or another ? Not much arm strength either haha I don't want to be stranded in the sea :P Again, thanks for sharing this! Emily

If you have time...
You just might want to wait to book until you get to the Galapagos. Find out when the boats leave, Mon, Fri? Then go in a day or two before and ask for a deal. You could save several thousand dollars if there is an opening. And there is plenty to do for a week, and good daily diving trips. You could try again the next week, last minute, or maybe you would have to pay full price but you would lose nothing.

Trip of a lifetime
For a diver you've just completed a trip we all dream of... you've now been in the waters of some very amazing, wonderful and famous dive spots. Your pictures make me wan to be on the next flight. Love to see a summary blog about what went well and what didn't. Which dive experience was your favorite and did any of them fall short. Did you plan the trip well and what would you have done differently for next time. MJ

I'll Make a Note...
If I make a note on my phone, maybe on the calendar, I will try to do a summary. I am still about six or seven blogs behind so it may be a while before I get to it. If you have specific questions, please just ask. Oh, my best tip today is remove the cardboard from a roll of paper towels and stick the towels in your bag. They are so useful, especially in Burma. Use them to wipe your feet after wandering through pagodas and temples. Just cover them when you leave the room. The maids took mine in the Philippines.

Liveaboard Experience
I've been diving since the late 80s and have never done a live aboard. You know the one strange guy at the dive resort or the dive boat that annoys everyone? I'm always afraid of getting stuck for a week on a live aboard with one of those guys. What has been your experience? Your photos are always so outstanding. Thanks for taking us along.

I can be super sensitive...
so I can understand your question. In the Galapagos there was a diver that seemed to like to goad me. Luckily, it didn't ruin the trip. He was knowledgeable so I learned what could be of help and there was another guy who was a good support for me so it evened out. The boats are usually big enough to keep a little distance between divers. The staff are anxious to maintain harmony so if things got really bad you could ask for intervention. I have done several liveaboards now and only one had a problem.

I am so glad you commented on this photo. I like it a lot, but to some it looks just ordinary.

Enjoying the Solomons
Your photos are outstanding. I"m always sad when the beaches are trashy. We've got to start taking care of our world. You are lucky they went back for your bag. Enjoy the diving photos.

Thanks for the kind words. I love taking photos but sometimes I become too critical.

Hope things improve
Banking safety is good but frustrating. Glad you have cash again and hope you find a clean place to sleep.

OFF TO A BAD START
Thanks for the reality check. Yes, I am grateful for bank safety, and for every irritation there is a reason lurking. Smile.
