Me and Jo each go our own way.
03.12.2010 - 08.12.2010
With Jo heading off to meet Ru in Bangkok, I was left to my own devices, spending a few more days on Phayam in the cheapest shack I could grab (300B = 6quid) and then I too was off, to Koh Tao.... to learn to dive!?
Koh Tao is one of the cheapest and most popular places to learn to scuba dive in the world. I was told if I had the time, which i did, and the money to do a course then I would be crazy not to.... so i did! I was hoping also that by doing a diving course I would get to meet some people to hang out with while I waited for Tom to fly out. Unfortunately the only two others on my course turned out to be a Norweigian couple on a romantic two week holiday.
Still, I learned to dive and saw a turtle! So all was not lost.
Not many photos, I'm afraid, of my diving experiences, but never fear.... I have a wonderful DVD of my dives for you all to watch at a later date.
