Underwater World Saipan

We had the pleassure to dive around Saipan. Our choosen dive company was speedy turtle and the price was average on Saipan. I did two dive, one at Lau Lau Beach and one in the Grotto on Saipan. My friend did two other dives near some ship wrecks. Anyway the dives were interesting and also the grey barren dive scenery at Lau Lau Beach was interesting due to the awesome rope route trough the different holes and tunnels. For me it was the perfect start after my last dives on Palau. Enjoy the pictures and the movie! The Grotto is a must for all divers on Saipan!

Saipan Adventure with a small glimpse of Guam

It was already time again for my next adventure.

This time I booked a cheap flight to Saipan. My diving buddy joined also.

Our travel path was following:

ZRH Frankfurt by bus
Frankfurt Seoul Saipan Guam

  • One night in Frankfurt
  • Stopover of 9h in Seoul
  • approximately 4 days on Guam
  • 7.5 days on Saipan

The reason why I booked a flight to Saipan is simple: the price of the flight ticket.
Maybe it was an errore fare again? 550 CHF for the flight from Frankfurt to Seoul to Saipan, which included a flight with the A380, awesome.

Frankfurt and Seoul

This adventure did not start as planned….
With a sick throat and some pain, Frankfurt was just a filler day for relaxing and getting used to holidays.
But on Monday I had a little bit more energy, with that energy we had a glimpse on the Dome and had a walked around the Römer, where we also enjoyed the sun and the classic music from a violin player nearby. It was time to start the adventure, we grabbed our lagguage and went to the Frankfurt Airport, where our flight to Seoul waited.

I was so excited. A380 was waiting for me, this was my first time in an A380. Simply amazing airplane, this technology, just awesome. Arrived in Seoul we took the arrex express to the city, it took us 43 minutes and 8’000 Won. Arrived in the center we headed to the N Seoul Tower from the Myeong-Dong station, we walked to the cable car station where we also took the cable car to the top due to the limited time we had in Seoul. On the top of the hill we did not miss the N Seoul Tower Obervatory Combination Package. Two entries, two beers and one big cup of popcorn. A M A Z I N G ! Let the pictures speak for themselves. Also that day we enjoyed an awesome coffee next to the train station, some time later it was already time to head back to the airport because our second flight to Saipan was waiting.


In Saipan a stopover of some hours waited for us. The duration was not the problem but the time of arrival. It was in the middel of the night to be exact,we arrived at 2:30 am and our next flight with the United to Guam was at 8:40 am. We did what everybody does at the airport, walk around, eating, drinking, listen to music, have a conversation and of course sleeping somewhere comfortable. It was finally time to check-in some minutes later we could board our turboprop airplane.

Kopenhagen

Exallty one year ago we went to Hong Kong but this time we went to Kopenhagen. Lagguage packed and at 10:30 we left our office with some big smiles. We had things to celebrate.

We were flying Swiss we could not wait for the nice awesome Swiss chocolate to arrive. Unfortunately some mean person 😐 took my piece….. and gave it away to somebody else.
After a pleasant flight and some funny rounds of Dooble with some complaints due to our noise level (recommendation at this point for the card game) we arrived at Kopenhagen. We were ready for our Kopenhagen Expiriences. We headed to our hostel which was next to the famous canal (Nyhavn). But firstly we enjoyed an awesome Danish hot dog with a lot of chillis sauce sooooooooo much that the hot dog lady wanted to kill us for our “thing” we created. On the way to the bed wood hostel we enjoyed the walk next to the canal. The weather was awesome and also the atmosphere. After a while we found our hostel where we checked in and met the others. Room and bed ready and red nose and arm, we went to the food market across the canal, where we enjoyed togethere fried chicken with some fries and for sure some beers for cleaning our throats. Outside there were some nice seats for realxing and enjoying the beer right next to the river canal. We were already partying hard the climax was already behind us we needed some new energy and therefore hit the bed for some minutes for recharging the batteries. After recharging, unfortunately, the batterie were emptier than before….. Anyway back on track we walked around and got us some beers and some bread. Valentin and I decided to go to eat something proper, I have have chosen some chicken noodle soup with awesome vegetables in it. As I described, the climax was already expirienced and the hangover could already be feeled in the forehead. So we decided to hit the bed early.


Next day, new game, woke up early enjoyed a good solid breakfast, we were ready to capture the world. Next stop bike rental!!!
On the bike we felt alive, finally!!!!! Geared up with music, snacks and beer we rode to the pretty famous mermaid where we took “the must” photo of the mermaid. It was an amazing day therefore we stop in a park where we enjoyed the atmosphere of Denmark!!! Next event was a homr made crepe by a cute girl in a cute restaurant where we also enjoyed a good cup of coffee. Back on the bike we crused around and enjoyed the vast bike system in Kopenhagen. We drove and drove until we were in Christiana, the area which is independet from whole Kopenhagen and where weed is legal to sell and smoke as far as I found out.But that moment I had no need to try it out.

Our next big stop was the power plant a little bit outside of Kopenhagen. The drive there was adventurous and also the view next to it was exciting. Soon there will be a ski track open on the roof of the power plant, what a nice idea. Last rest was next to the water, where we had a bet going on, unfortunately I lost…. Bet debts are honoroable debts!

Also that day we had some shopping to do therefore we headed to the shopping streets a little bit in the south of centre Kopenhagen. The streets were busy and diverse I was happy when we were finished with the shopping.


Back at the hostel we have met the others and where we had some minutes to rest. First eat something second drink something. Best plan so far, therefore Dominos called for pizza and a bar for our first beer. In the first bar we played some table soccer and had great fun even though the bouncer did not like me xD. After some good rounds of beer we changed pub where we staid the rest of the night. That night we had around 8 in total of incidents where we head near fights in the club. Let’s say the danish have still some viking blood in them :). Due to the summer winter change we lost a hour and it was really quickly 6:00 in the morning. We headed back to the hostel, sleept for some hours to be exact 3 hours, woke up again and then we brought back the bikes. At 11:00 we took the public transport back to the airport, where our flight to Munich -> Zurich waited.
