Knowing that I have been wanting to swim with dolphins all my life, Alan planned a trip of a lifetime for me for my big birthday! A week in the Azores with trips out to sea in a RIB to see the Atlantic spotted dolphin (and others).
It certainly lived up to all my expectations and contrary to my fear I managed to climb in and out the RIB without looking a complete idiot. Literally hundreds of dolphins and tiny babies too! I shall never forget the holiday - not just the dolphins but the island of Sao Miguel was fascinating with beautiful caldeiras - everywhere covered in masses of hydrangeas.
