Location: Gauna island
This was a day of teambuilding I would say, because we had a big day of trying to catch the wanted turtles so they could be tagged ; we all worked as one to catch them, shouting and pointing like a monkey seeing a banana (if you want to be cliché ) We all tried but, no dice. Nick caught a nice little war wound for his valiance and bravery to catch a turtle that was a bit too deep. I enjoyed driving the boat, also being able to have an excuse to be bossy. So far the trip has been an exhilarating experience, making new friends that will be there for a lifetime, experiencing a new world by just putting on a snorkel mask; to be able to feel you have 12 other people that are part of your family. Its moments like these that you forget this is only temporary, so I say, that I will make the most of this experience and learn the qualities my staff have to offer. One of the staff members: Patrick, cut my hair and as weird as it might sound, we build a bond on that. Torin and Hannah and I get on when I’m not a stereotypical messy teenager. Tomorrow we meet some locals our age. Another plunge into another culture; better get my mask.
