Photos aren’t everything!!📸 That’s something I really have to learn… #Throwback to when I swam with wild dolphins🐬 It was really such a magical experiences – actually one of the best I’ve had so far.💗 Since I was a little girl and watched ‘Flipper’, I dreamed of swimming with dolphins one day.🐋 After learning about how bad it is for dolphins and all kinds of other animals to be held captive in big tanks (watch 'Blackfish' to learn more❗), I didn’t want to be one of those tourists that support the industry and get their photo taken with those dolphins. I thought my dream would never come true until I found out that you can actually swim with WILD dolphins!🐳 And that’s what we did when we were in New Zealand.😊 We went on a small boat in Akaroa and drove out to the open water, jumped in the water and waited for the dolphins to come. Of course, with wild dolphins you can’t predict if they will show up or not, but we were lucky and a group of those amazing animals came by and played with us😍 They jumped out of the water and swam so close to us that we could have touched them. It really made me the happiest girl ever and I had a big smile on my face when we left.😊😊💗 Back on land I found out that the company actually sold the photos they took on the trip so I was super excited and looked through the pictures to find (at least) one that showed me with a dolphin. Literally EVERYONE of our small group had a great shot with a dolphin – except for me!🙁 This👆 is the only one there was and you can’t even see the dolphin properly.🙁🙁 It sounds so stupid, but this made me soo sad that I ended up crying so bad and wouldn’t stop for hours.😭😢 All that happiness and the memories of this incredible encounter were clouded by the fact that there was no nice photo of me! When I look back now, my reaction was really stupid and unnecessary.🙈 Photos aren’t everything!📸 You should keep the memories in your heart and if you have a nice photo, that’s a bonus but not everything!💗🌿 I hope that I’ll remember that when a similar situation comes up in the future. Have you ever experiences something like this? Let me know!🐋🌿 xx #storytime #fürmehrrealitätaufinstagram#reality
