did it, #3

[posted: ]  [2 comments]

during my time in thailand, i was able to tick off several items on my virtual “i’ve always wanted to …”-list.

number three: i’ve always wanted to see a shark in its natural habitat.

blacktip reef shark (carcharhinus melanopterus)
blacktip reef shark (carcharhinus melanopterus) in koh tao, thailand

this was the first time i was able to observe a shark in the wild.
i was snorkelling near shark island (it was named for its appearance, not the occurrence of sharks) in the south of koh tao, thailand. i even caught its attention, and it circled around me a few times before heading into the distance.
incredible.

    1. you know, it´s not for the shape of the rocks (they don´t look like a shark). the name comes from all those sharks near it. damn it.
    2. math, look here: asiadivesite.com, wikitravel.org and bigbluelog.blogspot.com (recognize that diving school?)
