I met a really nice guy surfing yesterday when we tried a surfboard we considered buying, a so called scorpion fish🌊🐠 We rent a surfboard at a tiny shop close to the beach of San Vincente de la Barquera and went into the water with it. The plan was to try it for 30 minutes each and then maybe buy it. After 20 minutes I stepped one something 'sharp' and thought it was a rock or something, it hurt just a little so I continued working on my surfing skills. After two or three waves the pain became reeeaally bad and felt like electro shocks in my leg, so I went out, gave the board to Sophie and sat down at the beach where my foot started to hurt incredibly strong and it got a little scary as I saw blood on one of my toes. An elderly couple saw that I wasn't good and called the lifeguards who came to pick me up with an ATV. When we came to their post a bowl of hot water already waited for me and they told me I stepped on a fish which inserts poison through stings on its back. The pain immediately became less with my foot chilling in the boiled water. Now it's all good and just hurts a little bit. Sadly we hadn't enough time to care more about the board so we didn't buy it... but we will buy neoprene shoes for sure hahaha... big thank you to Sophie for managing everything and coming to the hospital with me.. wuuhuuu I will never forget that pain, that's for sure🤙😂 #happyvanlife . . . #surfing #scorpionfish #spain #vanlifespain #sanvincente #nature #wildcamping #travel #vanbuild #vanlife #vanlifediaries #vanlifers #vanlifeeurope #vanconversion #campervan #vwtransporter #homeiswhereyouparkit #homeonwheels #buslife #vanvibes #vancrush  #seeyouontheroad #wanderlust #vandwelling #lifeontheroad #projectvanlife #roadtrip #nomadstays #silvervanproject
