#142 Swim with Manatees

This is my bucketlist item #142
I found a charming city of Crystal River, florida where you can legally swim with Manatees (they are an endangered species).
I call them Sea Pugs. They are called Se Cows, bit I truly think Sea Pugs is more fitting

 

Crystal River has about 70 springs with warm water. During winter season, Manatees come here to enjoy swimming in warmer waters.

If you have snorkeling gear, here is a pretty good spot to have a swim with those benevolent beasts

These creatures are truly gentle and impressive:

 

While I was swimming there, Dolphins decided to show up!

During sightseeing, how would you like to have an interactive map with cool places to see, specifically suited to your preferences? A map with location of your airport, bus, hotel, with gps capability and tailored information about stuff you really want to see? Like opening hours, recommendations from your friends and information for YOU.

Well, you have and it’s name is (no surprise there), evernote.

Preikestolen and Kjeragbolten on the cheap

 

I revisited Norway in 2018. I have to say,  places are a little bit more crowded now and paths to Trolletunga / Preikestolen / Kjeragbolten are much more organized.

Also, if you are taking a car – parking under Trolletunga is 500 NOK, under Preikestolem – 200 NOK and under Kjeragbolten 200 NOK as well.  I credit this post here with making it all so popular.

Version of the post from 2012:

 

My friends!

If you have not heard about neither Preikestolen nor Kjeragbolten, then you are living poor lives indeed. These places are frequently covered in “10 places you have to visit in your lifetime”, “20 places where you can find a lot of Poles”, and so on. It’s VERY beautiful!

But since you’re reading this post, I will assume you knaw the place I’m talking about :). Your focus is rather on “How to?” then on “What”. So I will share my experiences.
