Hi All,

I have spent 8 days on ABC Beach on Tioman Island. It's one of the 10 most beautiful Islands in the world (according to lonely planet and time..). I must say it was one of my favorite spots so far. It was very relaxing and quiet, nice beaches, great Reggae bar and people, with happy hour from 5-7 and beyond.. What else does a person need.. :-)

The first few days I completed the open water course in diving and it was great fun. It was a great experience to breathe underwater for a change. I have done 4 dives in total up to 18 meters and I haven't had any problems. I have been snorkeling from time to time but this was a completely different thing.. This will definitely become one of my hobbies on my travels.

The other days I went snorkeling for a few walks into the jungle but mostly I just relaxed on the beach. I need more of that I guess.. :-)

Hope you enjoy the pics.

Take care and I will send more pics soon!

Thanks Lydie!! Yeah, it has been a good time until now. It's lots of fun and I met very nice and interesting people. It's always a little sad to move on after a while.. Before I left I was really scared that I will be alone the whole time and maybe being mugged or something like that. It will get easier once you started and at least you are travelling as a couple. Don't worry, you'll love it once you go! Great news that it worked out for you as well. Are you still in Ireland at the moment?

Hi Monia, we left Ireland yesterday and now are in UK for a couple of days. too much hassle with packing things. Currently searching for a hotel in Rio de Janeiro, I don't want to end up in a dodgy place, a bit scared to get mugged over there... Enjoy! xx
