Eua, Tonga

We are staying here

Well, we arrived, the sea was rough and the ferry for the island of Eua was cancelled, but we were told that another 'boat' was going (it was supposed to be more sea-worthy). So we took that one (a pretty basic ferry type of boat) and rolled and rolled and I was so sick that I spent most of the time bent over the edge, risking to be swept over by a wave, but when you are sea sick somehow you stop caring about safety. Max was sick too, but Peter and Arantxa held on, so proud of them! 
The only positive thing about Max and I spending all that time throwing up was that we saw whales playing in the storm. I hope that you will understand that I wasn't fit to take photos :-).
Maybe we'll see some more whales, but I am definitely flying out of here, not cruising.

    1. Recovered quickly after, just a bit of Terra Ferma did the trick. But golly, so many people were sick on that boat, at least it wasn't just the tourists!
