Hope you don't mind me using this forum for a trip review.
Well, I was in Bintan from 26-29 March with Mitr. Ric and his friend Frank came along on the 27th. We missed Ric's arrival ... but recognised him straight away when we saw him at the trapeze later!
Lessee ... what's new? The weather is much better than it was in January. Watersports are back in operation so I had fun falling off the windsurf board and going sailing (just taxi rides - I just wanted to sit there like a lazy cow, and refused offers to let me steer.) The ferry crossings were also tamer, though I popped a couple of dramamine for the return trip because I was told that the sea was rough. And promptly knocked myself out - so sleepy!!
Ric was in the flying trapeze show, and Mitr was in the pareo show. But I won't steal their thunder by writing about these events!
Oh, I tried Taz's fitness classes for the 1st time - OMG! Tough is an understatement! Also spent quite a bit of time at golf - there are a couple of new GOs there - Cory (USA) and Don (Korea).
GOs were v nice as usual. The only thing which I was a bit disappointed about was that they did too few crazy signs!! After the show, they did "Hands Up" and there was the usual one dance at sundance. Apart from that, zilch. They seem to have eliminated dance floor before the show, and there was only one night that they had some crazy signs in the disco. So a bit disappointing in that sense!
But all in all, a great time!
