Even though I want my blog to be more focused, I will still have the occasional picture post of fun things Mel and I are doing. This is one of them :)
We spent the last week in Koh Tao (Turtle Island) in Southern Thailand. This is a remote backpacker’s island which offers the best value scuba diving in the world (or so I’m told). I took the PADI open-water diving course and am now certified! For anyone who hasn’t been diving yet the experience is thrilling. It is an amazing feeling to breath underwater, find a neutral buoyancy (a sensation unlike any other), and explore the intricate world hidden in the coral reefs. Not only was the diving phenomenal, the island itself was a small paradise. It offered me some of the best food I’ve eaten in Thailand, great volleyball, a great little used bookstore, an oil massage, some pleasant reading spots, and a much needed getaway. Enjoy these pictures.
