See the six black shadows in the water? That is us, See the floating guy without fins, that is our examiner Rob. :)
Koh Phi Phi here we come!
Pick up from our hotel tomorrow at 9am, then down to Phuket Town harbour. From there we will take the ferry across, so should be arriving midday at Koh Phi Phi. We have a plan to just check in to a reasonable hotel for a couple nights while hunting for the perfect bungalow.
Our criteria are:
1. Internet connection in the bungalow
2. Peace and quiet
3. A balcony/terrace
4. If possible with a view or on the beach.
5. Hot water
And all this for a reasonable price, so we might have to give on some of our criteria, but let's see!

Working the dream
Yes, we hope to start working again after 6 short months! We have heard that instructors with Scandinavian and German tongues are in demand and the diving is better there than on Koh Tao. Our plan is to work freelance ideally, so we can fill in where needed and take breaks as we choose, but we'll take what we can get as a start. Still waiting to get our official teaching status from PADI, but with a bit of luck we should be working by the end of
