After a dive-week in Sharm El Sheikh

Sunday I came back from Sharm El Sheikh where I have spent a wonderful holiday and I have met new friends. Despite the fligth back was not so confortable (the final destination was cancelled and we have landed in Malpensa airport) I still have great feeling of the week.

I have visited two new dive site's in Sharm: Pinky Wall and The Temple. Pinky Wall is a dive site's full of pink alcyonarian corals, sometimes the drift can direct you in the opposite direction where another famouse Sharm's site is available (Amphoras). The Temple is in the bay between Ras Umm Sid and Ras Katy and I had dive there twice: one during the day and the other during the night. The day was great because we had a long dive (66 mins and 80 bars left on the tank!) thanks to the depth that is between 6 and 18 meters. The night was a surprise: full of lion fish which was attracted by our lamps, we also seen a lazy crocodilefish on the bottom. The Temple have offered us the possibility to see a big moray around 2 meters long.

Hope to come back soon, bye bye Sharm!
