The NWS team’s attendance was excellent. Their Destination Specialists answered all my questions, and helped me with everything I needed. But let’s skip this part, and let’s talk about the journey I chose: distant Sri Lanka, where I would find the legendary blue whale!
I arrived at my destination on a sunny day. Sri Lanka is a beautiful country, and although very poor, the people are cheerful here. A driver had picked me up at the airport, and took me to the wonderful resort where I would spend my days. There I met Joshua Barton, Patrick Dykstra and Sara, the expedition guides, as well as the other travellers, Mohammed, Cara and Dean. The guides were very helpful, and informed us of everything we needed to know about diving with blue whales (but I will not tell. It’s part of the adventure! LOL).
