A few hours ago we came back from Aquaventure, and guys, you have no idea what this place is like. It would seem that in the world there are a huge variety of water parks, but this is completely different! 🌊This is a paradise on the Persian Gulf, five minutes from the white sand beach. Throughout the park there are channels with turquoise water, and you can ride on them with inflatable rings. At every turn you are waited by lifeguards, who make the rest safe even for children... by the way about children. In the park there is a stunning giant town for children and their parents with water slides! I wanted to become a child when I saw it! But for adults there is a huge variety of places for fun. You can ride the ropes, ride with friends on a very scary slides, or slip under the huge aquarium with sharks! Oh, did I mention fruit cocktails? 🍍🥥🍍🥥

Perks of the job...
We took my charge to Atlantis Waterpark for an exclusive Swim with Dolphins experience and Sea Lion Discovery.
This is Juna, a baby Sea Lion!
As a Nanny and Governess I have previously had to put my personal ethics/moral values to one side for the sake of my job but fortunately these decisions are usually chocolate/Nutella for breakfast based or kids going to bed before midnight related.
This one, however, was a very difficult one to get my head around. I love animals and I really struggle with the idea of animals kept in captivity and exploited for human entertainment. I am not a fan of this industry AT ALL, and have some really strong opinions on it.
However, my charge really wanted to go for these experiences and whilst it would perhaps be dramatic to say that I would have been fired if I refused to escort her, it probably wouldn't have looked great.
I asked a lot of questions to the trainers, who to their credit seemed very well versed in the ethics side of things and the living quarters of the animals seemed spacious and clean.
This kind of thing is probably a once in a lifetime experience for anyone, but I can say confidently for me that it definitely was - as I would never choose to do it again. The animals were lovely, the staff lovely but the big moral question mark over the whole experience hangs over me a little.

Dreaming of snow or dreading snow?? If you're looking for a snow filled adventure it is time to head to Manning Park, meanwhile our course at Bear in Mission is still snow free!
Our 2 for 1 officially ends TOMORROW so be sure to get this deal while it's here! It makes an excellent Christmas gift for that person you know is ready for the fun 🎉
If you book a stay at The Atlantis I highly recommend upgrading to the Imperial club package.You literally have access to food and drinks in the lounge whenever you want(the drinks to buy are really expensive and we’d pay £30 for beer and a soft drink each for myself and the boys!) They have happy hour from 5-7 where you can have all the cocktails and alcohol you want including canapés before you go to dinner, afternoon tea everyday, unlimited access to the water park and lost chambers Aquarium, a breakfast room where it’s less busy(otherwise you’d have to wait in the queues at the restaurants downstairs), complimentary kids club, pick up in a luxury car to and from the airport, access to the imperial beach club and so so much more! #travelwiththedsapereiras @atlantisthepalm

Simple reminders of home half a world away. This stone was at the highest point of our 4-day trek around Ausangate. Idaho is awesome. #peru #idaho #travel #aworldaway
I might be in South Africa, but my heart (in more ways than one) is still in Arizona. Life here is funny and leaves me truly appreciating the freedoms I have in America for the first time. Do you know that in Johannesburg, you don't stop at stoplights at night? Most women don't go out at night on their own? I was told that I shouldn't go on a run by myself, even in the daytime. Some (most) are the most lovely people I've ever been lucky enough to encounter. Some others (thankfully, few) have a glaring sense of entitlement that rolls off them like stench. I'm grateful for every second and doing my best to gain an understanding for the different cultures here. This is probably the best learning opportunity I've had in years. I'm ready to get out of the city and back to nature and adventures! Until then, here I am back home where my heart is. #travel #getoutthere #explorers #aworldaway #southafrica
