First evening on Fernando de Noronha

Posted by D under scuba

sunset closeupI usually consider myself very lucky. I have wonderful children, the perfect wife, a good job… what more could you ask for?

Well, how about fun trips? It used to be that my business trips were nothing but business. But over the last year, thanks to K2, many of my trips included a bit of fun time as well – mostly scuba diving. The same is true on this trip to Brazil.

HDR to bring out the colorsMy friend L and I arrived on Fernando de Noronha yesterday; if you never heard about this island – I was here last year – it’s where all the scuba diving for me started. After 28 hours of travel and five flights we were feeling remarkably well so we walked into town (if you can call it that), signed in with the dive store and took a walk along the beach. The sunset was quite nice. Here are some pictures.

Oh – I’m not sure how much I’ll be posting from here. The internet is incredibly slow. Much slower than it felt last year. I guess more people are using it, but the upstream bandwidth is still the same? Don’t know, but it’s painful. I’ve been working on this post for more than an hour.

    Those pictures are absolutely beautiful! The way you capture the colors and the nature is astounding. I hope you have a wonderful trip, even if the internet is slow. Just, please, take more pictures :)

    So the internet is so slow as in Germany ? Poor you… I wanted to post something in fb but gave it up after the system tried to upload a simple 900kb picture for more than 30 minutes…

    Lucky you the sunset is much nicer than here and so is probably the wheather.
    Enjoy your trip !!
