13/08/13 Loving Expedition Life

One week in paradise passes quickly; especially if your days are charged with beautiful dives, studying various colorful fish and helping out in the kitchen. Getting up at 6 am doesn’t seem at all too bad when you can call a marvelous beach your office.
All of us new people on camp successfully completed our advanced diving course and hopefully soon we can surveying the marine life around us. During this first week we also had some time to explore the secret beach of Bay Ternay and hike the Cap Matoopa for its breathtaking scenery. Climbing the rocks and trying to find your way up through bushes and spider webs you certainly start feeling like Robinson Crusoe. Once on top, the untouched nature around you and the colorful pattern of the coral reef beneath make you realize that you are in one of the most beautiful places in the world. I believe we are all very happy to share this experience and I hope we can greatly contribute to the efforts of GVI and its partnering organizations in the following weeks.
I wish everybody had the chance to take part in such an enlightening and horizon broadening trip and spread awareness of sustaining marine environments. I am definitely looking forward to every single second of my days on base!
