Yet another update, I know they come in clusters at the moment, but I needed a break from the website. Now I'm back with maxx power, so enjoy my work.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Anything that could be better? If you dare write, I'll be very happy to make your wishes come true :-)

This post is a little different from others, because I have experienced something completely, truly amazing. In one day I saw the worlds most rare and endangered Penguin, The Yellow Eyed Penguin. There are only eight of them in this colony and I saw four including a chick. Very very cool. There are less than 3600 of these penguins left in the world, and they are extremely shy. And later in the day I swam in the ocean with Hector Dolphins!!!! There are extremely few of this small dolphin species in the world, less than 5000, and I was in the (very cold) water as long as I could endure. Three dolphins came up close and swam around me, one dived and surfaced half a meter from my nose just out of no-where and it surprised me a good deal. While I was swimming I even saw a dolphin jump out of the water! He was about 25 meters away. There are not really any photos of my dolphin swimming, I was kind of busy swimming... :-)

What an amazing experience. I can't even begin to describe the feeling of swimming with dolphins, it's so incredibly touching.

Do this before you die.
