Cape Romano Dome House
A secret cult? Built by extra terrestrials?
For many years, these bizarre buildings on the isolated southern tip of Marco Island in Cape Romano, Florida, were a bit of a mystery. Some locals and abandoned explorers thought it might have been the community home belonging to a secret cult while other rumors went as far as claiming they had been left behind by extra terrestrials.
I’ve wanted to visit the famous Cape Romano Dome House for years, and I panicked a little bit when hurricane Irma caused two of the domes to collapse into the ocean in September of 2017.
Tides come and go. The dome home continues to sink. In due time, the dome home—now 200 feet offshore—will be laid to rest, its burial at sea. Until then, its foundation provides a home for marine life; and its weathered and graffitied domes, a perch for birds to sun themselves.
It was a great experience away from the city, exploring the beautiful beaches at Koh Lanta on a motorbike. I especially loved the crystal clear waters, cliffs and sunsets. I spent the last day of my trip at Krabi Town before flying back to Singapore because it was near the airport. It turned out to be a delicious decision. Goodbye Koh Lanta! #krabi_mpad

Day 19 (26th January) to 22
Devonport (Tasmania) to Auckland (New Zealand)
Sooo...the luggage making for NZ got delayed more than we thought, as I finished packing at 2am, nothing new under the sky...but it had to be done! No luggage, No New Zealand right?? If only it was that simple!
Getting into NZ it's been a very hard and troubled time!
Despite the luggage making having kept us awake till late at night, for once we were even early in the queue to imbark on the ferry, and as usual, for Murphy's law, the ferry was delayed of 1,5 hours!!! No worries, we only had 11h on a ferry and a flight to catch on the same day! After we landed, various things happened on the way from Melbourne harbour to the airport, like someone forgetting the guitar and someone else learning to walk through shut doors... 👻🙄😂 And despite all this, we still made it to the airport on time...
So? Where's the stressful part?? Well, on the fact that when we went to check in our luggage, they told us we couldn't fly to NZ! Reason being, we had to have a flight back, so we had to buy a return flight on the spot or no flying at all! It's not describable all the emotional swings that happened in that hour, and when we finally got on the plane, when we thought we could finally "relax", the whole flight was in company of the worst tourbolences I've ever experienced flying! Now you understand why those faces, when after a day and a night of floating in the water and in the air, our stomachs were finally capable of having a sandwich, just before we had to throw everything away at the security 😂
Just a little taste of the behind the scenes, on the "not so much fun" side of travelling 😉 It always looks so great and enjoyable in the nice pics, but the back story is never visible 😅
The next few days were just spent in Auckland recovering and looking for our new vehicle to start our new adventure travelling around New Zealand 😄
Oh I forgot, the most exciting thing in all this is that I finally got my first stamp on my passport!!! 😊
I'm gonna try this to see who still reads till the end, so if you have, can you write on the comments which is the animal mentioned in the last pic?! Just curiousity 😜
