I wish I could stay longer!

For security reasons, I couldn't do the eco hiking adventure Because they don't let just one person hike. But it was really fun as well to go on the other trip, 4WD tour. Our guide was amazing, he knew everything about the island and it was a nice opportunity to meet new people. Thankyou Fraser Dingo for the wonderful experience!
