It’s time to go on a nice trip with the family again :)
We booked a hotel well in advance as it is a bit more time-pressed to get the days together when the hole family are going. We enjoyed the hotel we were at the last time with the children, and our wish was to be there again. But according to Ving, they would not be in charge of that hotel this year, so we simply had to choose and take a chance on another. But a few weeks before departure we looked at Ving's website and to our delight, the hotel had appeared as an alternative. We called, and they shifted our hotel choice to Servatur Puerto Azul. JIPPII!!!
This trip will be a little extra exciting too as the girls decided to make the last 2 steps of training for OW divers certificate, and it will be together with Wouter and his diving center "Lets go Diving".
At the hotel, we got the same room as last but mirrored, which I like.
All package in to our room, change and up to the pool area. We have time for some simple toast, drinks and bath before the evening dinner buffet later on. And some ice cream and our evening walk, of course!
Then there will be a big focus on diving in Amadores. Doesn't matter how much you've done it, it's always such a craving and desire to dive more, and it becomes even more fun than the young people like it, and me and Stefan can get the opportunity to show and share everything amazing under the surface.

The girls start with a nice dive, and then it becomes coarse and the younger man in the family had some nice fun dive in the meantime and discovers lots of delicious animals. We are never disappointed in Amadores as we always get to see one or more octopuses. 3 nice days in this beautiful bay.
All three young people are really good now to dive, and it just gets more fun every time we dive.
Afternoons after the diving there will be relaxing in the pool, drinks (mostly soft drinks and water), ice cream, buffet lunch, dinner buffet and sunset walks. In the evenings after the walk there are performances at the bar. Magic, Mikael jackson, rock rings, etc.
What got a little extra and very cool this time was that during the Mikael Jackson show, a young guy showed up next to the stage and danced incredibly well. So the man who performed on stage invited him up, and it was an excellent performance, the audience screamed.
Then it was time for a little more deep dive in the course, and it will be from boat, which in itself is also the first time for the girls. In depth, if they should take off and on googles and some other exercises that would be done on this day.
It is good to be able to fix your equipment even when it’s wavy, which becomes a training moment in itself for our girls.
Even now we mixed course with pleasure dive :)
The girls finished the course, JIPPI!!! They are of course relieved and happy and I would be lying if I said I am not extremely relieved and happy :p Now they can call themselves Open Water divers :)
This time, the trip actually felt way too short. Normally it is sad that the trip is over, but it’s still nice to come home to our own beds, now the trip felt far too short. It has been so calm, harmonious and fun in every way. You can see that it is not children you go with anymore, but young people who are self-motivated.
Thanks for a great holiday :)
Merry Christmas 2021
