Travel Diary: Zakynthos And The Sea Turtles





-ITA-
Per concludere i post su Zante ho lasciato la ciliegina sulla torta: le tartarughe marine!

Parte dell’isola (e del mare) è parco naturale dedicato proprio alla salvaguardia e alla riproduzione della Caretta Caretta, quindi è normale che ce ne siano diverse in giro, 

ma non avrei mai sperato di poterne vedere così tante e addirittura di poterci nuotare insieme, dato che comunque si tratta di animali selvatici!
In dieci giorni circa ne ho viste 4, con due delle quali ho anche nuotato insieme per un bel po’ di tempo (le altre due erano un piccolino che era stato trascinato a riva dalla corrente - ed è stato subito aiutato a rientrare in mare dagli addetti - ed un gigante di più di due metri che ha gironzolato intorno alla nostra barca per un po’).

To end the post about Zakynthos I left the cherry on the cake: the sea turtles

Part of the island ( amd the sea around) is a natural park dedicated to the preservation of Caretta Caretta, 

so it's normal there are several of them around, but I would never have hoped I'd be able to see so many and even to swim together, since they’re still wild animals!
In about ten days I have seen 4 turtles, with two of which I have also swum together for a while  (the other two were a little one who had been dragged ashore by the current - and was immediately helped to return to the sea by employees - and a giant of more than two meters that has wandered around our boat for a while ).

Dire chè è stata un’esperienza mervigliosa ed emozionantissima è davvero riduttivo: l’emozione si vede dal casino che ho fatto con la go-pro, dato che ero così agitata e felice che non riuscivo a star ferma per filmare, anche perchè allo stesso tempo cercavo pure di capire se anche papà l’avesse vista.^^
Le tartarughe sono creature stupende, calme e tranquille (almeno loro!) e per nulla spaventate dalle persone.
Si fanno nuotare a fianco fin quasi a sfiorarle senza nessun problema (bè se hai le pinne, se no non tieni il passo), ed anzi danno quasi l’impressione esser curiose di noi quanto noi di loro, dato che ogni tanto sembravano fermarsi per aspettare che le raggiungessi (si nota anche in uno dei fimati), o forse era solo la mia impressione, boh…

To say that it was an exciting and very emotional experience is really reductive: you can see my excitment from the mess I made with the go-pro: since I was so agitated and happy that I could not stand still and at the same time I was trying to check if my dad was looking too. ^^
The turtles are wonderful, calm and peaceful creatures (at least they are!) and not at all scared of humans. 

They swim so near to you that you could touch them without any problem (well, if you have fins, if not you cannot keep up), and almost give the impression to be as curious as us of them, since sometimes seemed to stop to wait to be reached by me (you can see it in one of the film)... or maybe it was just my impression, I can’t say ...

In ogni caso, so che potrebbe non sembrare, ma questa è stata senza dubbio una delle esperienze più belle ed intense della mia vita, provare per credere! :D

In any case, I know it might not seem like it, but this was undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and intense experiences of my life, try to believe! : D

    1. Ma vaaaaa!!!! E' impossibile che tu non piaccia a qualcuno!
      Probabilmente ne ho viste diverse solo perchè passavo talmente tanto tampo in acqua e nelle zone più isolate che statisticamente era inevitabile!^^

  7. On my recent trip, for the first time I saw turtles. At night they would lay their eggs on the beach.
    It was really fascinating to watch!

  9. Un mondo magico, nuotare insieme alle tartarughe è un vero sogno! Le foto sono stupende, colori vivissimi e bellissimi in un ambito che sembra quasi surreale. Mi piacerebbe tantissimo visitare Zakynthos e adesso ho ancora più voglia di imparare a nuotare.
    Buona domenica cara!
    Saluti,

  15. Hey everyone
    I'm so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after few months of breakup, I’m extremely happy that will are living together again. My boyfriend of 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.
    I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again...
    All thanks to Dr Ahmed if you have any marital, relationship or divorces problem contact Dr Ahmed now and I guarantee you that he will help you.
    Here’s his contact.
