Koh TaoKoh TaoKoh Tao

I miss them:(
All right this is my very last blog entry for SE Asia as tomorrow I fly over the big sea to Australia.

So I arrived back in Bangkok and met again with Claire and Doug, I'm really going to miss them, I attempted a little shopping and then we headed to the Koh Tao, the "place" to dive in Thailand. Well, it is the place to dive, I had planned on taking my rescue course and when they said it would be $400CND I changed my mind and went for 10 fun dives instead, saved myself $150 and It was just fun no work. I got a sweet package with 5 nights free accommodation, 5 free breakfasts and 10 dives for $250, hard to beat that😊

The diving was amazing, okay not like Sipidan but I was not complaining. Lots of rays, sharks, 1 sea horse and a lot of new stuff for me. My last dive was by far the best we seen 3 types of sharks, far bigger that I had expected, crabs, a stone fish awww it was great!! My guide was Off and he was really good at finding things and making

On d boat, Claire and my fav dive master Off
sure you had a good dive and funny at that. I highly recommend Phoenix Divers and do one of there package deals. What else? Well pretty much besides that we ate and drank and hung out by the pool, I forgot to mention we had a pool at the resort, fancy shmancy I know. I went out one afternoon with JJ, another DM, and checked out some other beaches in Koh Tao, it's a really good place if you could just be diving all the time. Oh I forgot I was sea sick for the first time, not fun.

Leaving Koh Tao was pretty weird, I would have loved to stay and just hang out with Claire and Doug, go diving and do a little more exploring. I guess all good things come to an end. Saying goodbye to Claire and Doug was really hard, we had spent like 5 weeks together and were all now going separate ways. Claire heading to England then Scotland, Doug to India and me to Australia. I would see Doug again in Bangkok but Claire would be in the air by the time I got there. Really weird feeling it was. So we said good-bye at the pier and I got on the boat to Koh Pha Ngan and they to Bangkok.

The trip to Ko Pha Ngan was short and sweet, I think the shortest I've traveled in a long time. I went to this little beach and just lazed about for a couple days doing nothing but reading and hanging out at the beach. It was a good way to end the Asia trip I think. The monsoon season had just started so there was nobody there and all the people became very unmotivated and quite hard to find if you wanted a meal or something at the store. It was kind of funny, and then you'd find them sleeping somewhere and they would seem so disoriented when you'd have to wake them.

So back in Bangkok again, ya know it's not so bad here after all. I fly to Singapore tomorrow where I will hopefully get my hikers back then Oz. I getting pretty excited to see the sis.
