My New Dream...

THAILAND | Thursday, 15 March 2012 | Views [550]

... to become a diving beach bum. I use the term beach bum as a form of endearment.

I can't believe I have only been on Koh Tao for 4 days! it's unbelievable to think of! I am officially a certified Open Water Diver and can dive up to 18m; but, as of tomorrow, I will be an advanced adventure diver capable of diving up to 30m!

To be honest, I have barely seen any of the island, only a couple of streets near the dive school. At some point I will have to take a break from diving and check it out.

So far, I have done 6 dives, including a WWII shipwreck (it was intentionally sunk so technically not a real shipwreck). Tomorrow, we will do a navigation dive, fish id dive, night dive and a fun dive. I might have caught the diving bug though, as I am already planning on doing my rescue diving course next week after spending a few days doing fun dives. I am even checking to see if I can afford to stay 2 more months to become a dive master! Koh Tao is the cheapest place in the world to do you diving school and it is starting to seem like a better idea every day. I would certainly save money on having to make another trip back to do it. Even as I sit here typing this blog post my brain is battling over each senario. I will have to decide soon though so I can start switching flights!

Well, I have a 6am start tomorrow so it's off to bed for me. Rah dtrit sah-wat (good night!)
