Sharing a vehicle and spreading the cost

TIP - If negotiating for a trip it is often cheaper to bargain for the whole vehicle and get a few friends to join you.

On our recent South Pacific cruise we docked on the island of Lugainville.  On the dock locals were waiting with their vehicles, small cars, mini buses and trucks.  Most wanted to charge a fixed price per person depending where you wanted to go.  We tried a different tactic and negotiated for a truck to take us to the Blue Hole and Million Dollar Point for $100.

Soloman said he could take up to 10 people and were already 6 so asked a few other cruise passengers and soon made it up to 9.  A great deal at less than $12 a head.  Other people off the boat paid $50 per person for the same trip, Ok so they were in an air conditioned mini bus but I reckon we had more fun and by not having to wait for the bus to fill up we got to the places before the other people arrived.

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4
year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I
had to tell someone!
