After 24 hour delay in Brisbane we arrived Espiritu Santo April 20th. We were picked up at the airport by David, who had been to the airport and back a dozen times cause nobody could tell when we were arriving. Espiritiu Santo is Vanuatu`s largest island. Vanuatu is a Y-shaped chain of islands and is covered with green tropical forests. The water is crystal clear and the sandy beaches are lovely. We stayed with David in one of his houses close to the only town on the island, Luganville. There is alot to see here and we hired a car to get around on Santo. One of the best things to see here is the blue holes. The crystal clear, deep blue pools are fed by a freshwater spring and are unike for Vanuatu. We went swimming in one of the blue holes. David took us out in his boat one afternoon and we went snorkeling on a little island outside Santo. There are a lot of colourful fish and corals here. An other must see is Champagne beach. It has been rated one of the best beaches in the world (I do not have the referance to that piece of information). We were all alone on the beach and the water were amazingly blue and clear. Not a lot of tourists come here so there are no crowds a round.

Thank’s alot David for having the Norwegian turistico idioto ; )

Ukens neglelakk er bær.
På Indigo Pearl, det beste hotellet i Thailand hadde jeg badekar midt i rommet.

Mamma måtte på sykehuset mens vi var på Phuket, og jeg måtte gi henne medisiner. Nå er hun heldigvis frisk igjen.
Trazan eller var det Tarzan? Det går an å bo i denne trehytten. Det så ut som det var litt skummelt å bo der for det er aper på Koh Lanta.
Her er en av apene vi møtte på veien rundt øya.

Hele skolen min gikk i parade på Laanta-Lanta festivalen. Alle hadde på seg skole t-skjortene sine.
Med denne lucky baloonen ønsker jeg alle hjemme en god natt!
The last two weeks has been a couple of eventful weeks in the life of Reiseselbekk. We left Koh Lanta February 16.th to go to Bang Tao Beach in Phuket, and spend a week with our friends Anne Kari, Tori and little Selma. The plan was to go back to Koh Lanta on the 24.th after the winter holiday. We had a great time with the Haga family. We also got to meet up with the Alm family from Sweden. We meet the Alm famliy in 2007 on Koh Pagnang on our first round the world travel. We went on a afternoon snorkel trip with longtail boat and AE and AK had a lovely afternoon on spa. The day before we were supposed to go back to Koh Lanta, AE got sick and ended up having an operation in Phuket International hospital. Unfortunate but luckely we were not far from the hospital, Lucas had a sleepover at Alms and Anne Kari and Tori could take care of him while Bos went with AE to the hospital. Our plans to go back was off course postponed. While AE was in hospital Bos and Lucas continued to stay at Bang Tao Beach and Lucas was playing with his Norwegian friend Stian. No complication after the operation and after one week AE got out of hospital. The hotel on Bang Tao was full so we moved north one beach to Nai Yang Beach and wonderful Indigo Pearl hotel. A very nice place to rest and get back on your feet. Sunday we met the Alms again. They had booked Sunday brunch on our hotel. That was a coincident, but a very pleasant one : )
Today Tuesday 6th. March we are finally going back to Lanta, and for Lucas back to school. That will be a nice change to home schooling, at least for the teachers.
