Just swam with a manta ray in BoraBora – Egy manta-rájával úsztam BoraBorán épp most /PYF/

We’ve finally been given our clearance from the Gendarmerie. So off we go to Rarotonga. Alas we leave Dan’s stolen laptop behind. It feels a bit like the French police are here to have a holiday. Anyway…. I swam with this amazing manta ray this morning. It was my first time ever!! Such an experience!

Megkaptuk vegre a papirokat a rensorsegrol a tavozashoz. Laptop nelkul sajnos. Ide ugy latom nyaralni jarnak a francia rendorok. Mindegy. A lenyeg, hogy ma USZTAM MANTA-RAJAVAL!! Eletemben eloszor. Hihetetlen volt!!

Leaving Bora Bora – Bora Borat magunk mogott hagyva /PYF/

Our time in French Polynesia has come to an end. It’s been just under three months. I would say my favourite island was Fakarava. There was something about the atmosphere, the locals, the sharks, the grouper spawning, the shape of the island: just like a pearl necklace. Our next stop will be RAROTONGA! I’ve bought my Father’s book on Kindle, just to refresh my memory before I get there, so that’s what I’ll be reading while we sail. You could read the book with me in the next week, if you’d like to, by buying it on Kindle here: https://www.amazon.com/Man-who-refused-Die-Makimares-ebook/dp/B00MPCZUAG#nav-subnav    There’ll be three of us on board for this passage, which should take between 5 and 7 days. A German guy called Chris joined. The girls all headed to New Zealand and Australia on other boats. In Rarotonga, Dan’s girlfriend (SuperCool Susan) will be rejoining us, as well as a friend of hers. Susan will bring my fixed laptop back to me, so updating the blog should become easier again. The internet on Rarotonga is apparently really expensive though ($50/gigabyte!) so unless I find something cheaper,  don’t expect man photos or videos.

Nos, elerkezett az utunk vege itt Francia Polineziaban. Rarotongan mar visszakapom a laptopomat es lesznek ekezetek a betukon, meg jobban megszerkesztett videok. Osszesen 3 honapot voltunk itt, rengeteg szepet lattam, de a kovetkezo allomasunkat nagyon nagyon varom mar! Rarotongan irodott ugyanis Edesapam konyve, igy hat odaerni egy kicsit olyan lesz, mint egy gyerekkori alom megvalosulasa. Ezt a konyvet sokszor olvasta nekunk estenkent Apukam a hajon lefekves elott. Elegge hihetetlen, hogy ez a kovetkezo allomasunk. Meg is vettem Kindle-on, hogy mire odaerek friss legyen a fejemben (te is megteheted itt: https://www.amazon.com/Man-who-refused-Die-Makimares-ebook/dp/B00MPCZUAG#nav-subnav ) Ezen a kb 5-7 napos uton harman leszunk a hajon: Chris egy uj nemet srac, Dan es en. A lanyok delnek indultak Ausztralia iranyaba. Rarotongan becsatlakozik hozzank Dan baratnoje Susan (aki nagyon jofej) es Susan egyik baratnoje. Sajnos allitolag Rarotongan egy giga internet otven dollarba kerul, ugyhogy ne szamitsatok sok kepre vagy videora.

I’m not saying bora Bora sucks, but…. – Bora Bora szarnak nem szar, de azért…. /PYF/

….I thought other islands like Huahini or Fakarava were prettier. There is such a hype about Bora Bora, and pretty as it is, behind the scenes it’s a little disappointing. Despite the huge amount of tourism, locals have little work, the roads are in poor condition, hiking paths are not well maintained, roosters start going crazy at 3am, keeping people from sleeping, theft is an everyday problem, dogs have become wolflike and roam around in packs attacking people, but hey….

….nekem annyira nem jot be. Huahini vagy Fakarava peldaul sokkal jobban tetszett. Ketsegtelen, hogy Bora Bora szep, de szerintem kicsit tul van spirazva. A szinfalak mogott elegge elszomorito, ami a szigeten zajlik. Peldaul rengeteg a betores, a kutyak elfarkasodtak es falkaba verodve tamadnak emberekre, ugyhogy bottal kell jarni, rossz allapotban van az az egy ut, ami korbevezet a szigeten, a helyieknek nincs munkajuk az oriasi turizmus ellenere se, a turaosvenyek nincsenek karbantartva, a kakasok hajnali 3-tol kukoritanak, mint az orult amitol nem lehet aludni.

Tuna and sail – Tonhal es vitorlazas /PYF/

Hey guys. So we have already left Huahini, which was beautiful but I didn’t take many photos. Like my facebook page for the few I took. I’m afraid until I get my laptop back pics/vids will be a bit all over the place. I am borrowing Dan’s laptop and using my phone and the combination of the two doesn’t allow for a cohesive post. We arrived to Bora Bora yesterday, which is exciting. Check out my two videos below. I hope you enjoy them! 🙂

Sziasztok! Tegnap megerkeztunk Bora Borara. Eleg erdekes itt lenni. Huahinit megjartuk a heten. Kepeket a facebook oldalra toltottem fol. Remelem megtalaljatok. Sajnos amig nem kapom vissza a laptopomat, egy kicsit osszevissza vannak lesznek a videok es kepek. Remelem tetszeni fog a ket alabbi video!
