  • 4th January 2012

    Today we woke up to the sound of the pouring rain, (and I break down as you walk away, Stay, stay!). Okay, that was just some lyrics from a song called Stay by Hurts. Never mind.

    So, because of the rain we sat at our balcony until lunch when the sun showed again. So we ate lunch and took a swim in the pool at the hotel, and then we took a taxi in to the city Porlamar, the “capital” of Isla de Margarita. We walked around among the many stores that sold everything (but mostly clothes) and I bought a new pair of jeans. Lucky girl!

    Now I’m talking to Pierre (only three nights more without you now!!) and in half an hour we’re going to eat dinner. Tomorrow is our last day here, and we’ll go snorkling in the beautiful sea, and then go to bed early since we’re leaving around three or four in the morning on Friday.

    Hugs!

  • Third January twothousandandtwelve

    Good evening sunshines!

    The time is 18.22 in Venezuela and me and Olivia are sitting here at the Internet Café at the hotel as usual this time, and I’m talking to Pierre (miss you so f**cing much ♥), check Facebook and blogs, check my mail… And so on.

    Today we’ve been to the surfing beach! Mark, Josefine, Bjorn and Erik tested wavesurfing yesterday and thought it was really fun, and thought me and Olivia should try it as well so we did. And I can tell you – it is REALLY difficult. In one and a half hour I managed to really stand up at a wave maybe three times. Though I wasn’t as good as Olivia were, and I didn’t had the patience… But it was fun to try and I can imagine why people love it so much. Those who like snowboarding, you should try! Or if you just like to get a one meter high wave in your face every other second and get salt water in your eyes and get a board in your head, then you should try it as well. No seriously, it was fun but really, really difficult and not really my thing, but I’m glad I’ve tried it 🙂


    This is definitely not me, and the waves were definitely not that big, but this is real wavesurfing when someone who can surf is surfing.. 😉 Picture from Google.

    The afternoon we spent by the pool at the hotel, drinking piña coladas and poco locos in the evening sun. When my Internet time is over (oh wonderful I’ve got 47 minutes left!) we’ll eat dinner and before that I’ll take a shower to shower away all the sand from the beach and inspect my burn from today, ’cause yes, I think I burned my thighs a bit today 🙁

  • 2nd January 2012 – Caribbean sea – check!

    Today we took a taxi to another part of the island, and after a few clumsy attempts of trying to make the taxi driver understand that he would pick us up again at four and then be payed, he understood and gave us the 25 minutes ride to Playa Cariba without require money.

    We were at the beach already somewhere after ten in the morning, so it was pretty empty with people which was nice. This beach was very good actually – it was much longer and wider than the beach at our hotel, there was not that much people (at least not in the morning) and the waves were a bit smaller. But sometimes they are about 1,5 meters high, so you don’t dare to go out in the water more than a few meters from the beach…

    We ate lunch and drank piña coladas, sunbathed and made our skins a liiiittle more brown before we were picked up again at four, exactly as we decided, and the taxidriver got his money when he left us at our hotel again. Now I’ve got half an hour more with Internet, which I’m going to spend talking to Pierre, who I miss very, very much… ♥ Then I will take a shower and then it’s dinner at the á la carte restaurant at the hotel – you get really tired of the all inclusive food pretty fast.

    Write again tomorrow!

  • Let’s take a 20 minutes busride from the hotel to another beach and then back to the hotel again!

    Today we wanted to test another beach so we took the “beach bus” (a bus that goes between our hotel and its sister-hotel by another beach) from the hotel and rode with that to another part of the island, a ride for about ten, fifteen minutes. When the bus stopped by the other beach, it suddenly started to rain (it does here sometimes, the sky just opens up and the rain falls down for a few minutes and then suddenly stops again and gives place for a hot sun again), and noone got out of the bus – noone wanted to get wet, and nor did we. And we also didn’t really know how it worked, if this really was the right stop, since it was the first time we did it.

    When noone got off the bus, it started to drive again after a few minutes. I guess we thought it would just turn around or drive a bit more to let us out at another place, but after a few minutes we realised that the bus was going back to our own hotel, where we started and after a while we surely saw our own hotel outside the buswindow.

    The strangest thing of all was though that when the bus stopped everyone got out and went back to our pool at this hotel. Wtf? Thought you were supposed to go to another beach? Well, we took the same ride again but this time we got off…

  • New Year’s Eve & Bora Bora

    Okay folks, now we’ve only got 355 days left to live (or actually 354 point something), so let’s make 2012 an awesome year – it is after all our last one since we’re supposed to die the 21st of december 2012

    Yesterday night was really fun, it got much more fun than I first thought it would be. We ate buffet at the hotel – as always the food always looks better than it tastes but it was pretty good. We’re travelling with another very nice and kind Swedish family from Stockholm – Bjorn, Josefin, Mark and Erik who are 21-26 years old and their parents, and during the night the young people asked me to join them after the countdown to 2012 and go into the city to test the Venezuelan nightlife. I said yes of course…

    So after 24.00 when 2011 died and 2012 was borned, we drank champagne and danced and at 01.30 me, Bjorn, Mark, Erik and Josefin took a taxi from outside the hotel into the city. We came to the nightclub Bora Bora at two or something and spent two hours dancing and trying to recognize any song. Think we knew six songs during those two hours – the rest were Spanish music. But it was fun anyway and I didn’t got to bed until five o’clock in the morning but it was definitely worth it! 😉


    Picture from google, but this is my first night club… and I definitely got a taste for it and I’m longing to turn 18 so I can go out legally 😉
