Well, I didn't realize HOW long it had been since I'd written until I logged in. SORRY!!  Time flew by! I am now back in Bangkok, now a (pending me sending in the paperwork) certified divemaster! On to Australia next! SO in these past few weeks, much ... Read more >


Busy Busy

Monday, 4 Aug 2008 | Views [321]

Well... I've been VERY busy again and now finally have a day off. Besides doing my visa/border run down to Malaysia, spending 10 minutes there, and coming back --- waste of time and money, but necessary.... During the past week I did my first dive where ... Read more >


Another Whale Shark....

Tuesday, 29 Jul 2008 | Views [343]

So, this whale shark apparently LOVES our shop. I saw it again for the 2nd time 3 days ago, and the past 2 days they've seen it again. Yesterday it was around them for 20 minutes, today 13. I missed it these past 2 days because I was on my border run ... Read more >


A Whale of a Good Time

Friday, 25 Jul 2008 | Views [377]

I GOT TO SWIM WITH A WHALE SHARK. Pretty much, me staying is completely worth it now. it was one of the best experiences ever. I'm still in awe at it. People who have been here MONTHS haven't gotten to see one and many of the whale shark sitings have ... Read more >

Well, if you haven't seen my email..... I have decided to stay and live in Thailand, Ko Phi Phi for the next 6 weeks. I will be training/working to become a dive master! This means pretty much 7 days a week I get up at 6:30 and don't leave the shop until ... Read more >


Yay Diving!!

Thursday, 10 Jul 2008 | Views [360]

Tuesday Julia flew back to London for graduation  :( I came back to Ko Phi Phi, after hearing that the diving here is better than in Ko Tao. Yesterday I started my advanced certification in diving. We dove the wreck -- a ferry that sank in '97, many ... Read more >


well done, us!

Monday, 7 Jul 2008 | Views [489]

First, sorry about the last blog. the computer started typing in Thai and I didn't know how to change it, and no one seemed to know... and then I forgot I hadn't finished it!  SO... what we've been doing since then. Well, the next morning, I guess ... Read more >


Fins to the left, fins to the right

Thursday, 3 Jul 2008 | Views [353]

This morning Julia and I got up to go out on a long tail boat we hired to go to Shark Point and Bamboo Island. It was pouring rain when we woke up, but luckily when we went out on the boat it was only maybe sprinkling. We went to shark point and got ... Read more >


I'm in love.

Wednesday, 2 Jul 2008 | Views [332]

I love Ko Phi Phi. It's actually Ko Phi Phi Don, the bigger of the 2 Phi Phi Islands (the other is Lay -- sp?)and pronounced 'pee pee'. First I will say, the sand in Destin is whiter and nicer... but this stuff doesn't get as much everywhere, which ... Read more >


Quick hello from Chang Khong!

Friday, 13 Jun 2008 | Views [264]

We took the mini bus to Chang Khong today, taking about 6 hours. The drive was BEAUTIFUL. so lush and nice. We were driving through a valley with mountains on both sides. In this valley there were many types of agriculture with people out working the ... Read more >

Going to Chiang Mai/ Exploring

Monday, 9 Jun 2008 | Views [643] | Comments [1]

I took a sleeper train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai, leaving BKK at 6pm from Hualamphong Station at 18:00 (6pm). I took a taxi there because otherwise I would have had to walk to the pier, take the ferry to central pier (13 stops) to catch the skytrain ... Read more >

Weather

Sunday, 8 Jun 2008 | Views [259]

Still hot (85) and humid here. BUT it sounds like it's the same weather everyone else is experiencing as well. Minus the big storms you all get. That's what surprises me. It's rainy season here, and it's rained about the same time the past 2 nights, ... Read more >

So this morning I slept in a bit... maybe due to the fact I didn't end up going to bed until 4 am. oops. I got up and got some mango on the street for breakfast. I met a guy last night, Dax, that I had spoken to for a bit and we were supposed to go to ... Read more >
