BLUE HOLE: (Dahab, Egypt)

Travelling is as much about stepping out of your comfort zone and confronting your fears as it is kicking back and having fun. This was the mantra I had LilNeko repeating as we attempted to drop off the pontoon with as little fuss as possible, into a 300 foot sheer hole in the ocean floor just off the beach on the edge of the Sinai Desert. Although her vertigo induced screams were somewhat muffled by the snorkel gear, the sound was the kind that set your fillings on edge. Thankfully, there weren't too many people around to witness her amusing antics….. other than our friends and nearby neighbours from Bristol, Kate & Kenny! Of all the places and times eh? It was a great surprise, if slightly bizarre, to catch up with them and their kids for a drink, and they appreciated knowing they weren't the only ones having to suffer tantrums on their travels.
