Week 33: Last week on Koh Tao

April 22, 2009 - Filed under Scuba Diving, Underwater Photography, Weekly Report

After 5 weeks on Koh Tao, we decided it was time to move on. We’ve had a great month relaxing, diving, and catching up with a few friends (Becca, Jacob and Patrick who we met in the Philippines, as well as Kenny and Ben, friends from Vancouver).

The highlight for this week was undoubtedly the Whale Shark. We had heard one had been spotted a couple of times over the last few weeks, and we’d been trying to arrange a trip to Sail Rock, almost since we arrived, but for some reason none of the dive shops could make it happen. Until last Friday…

Week 32: A week in point form…

April 13, 2009 - Filed under Weekly Report

Here’s what happened this week:

  • Mike finally got his computer fixed after waiting 2 weeks for a new video card.
  • I lost my bank card, and am now awaiting a new one from home.
  • We had a few drunken nights with Becca & Jacob, involving thai buckets and late night pancakes.
  • The weather has been rather un-cooperative, bringing lots of rain and a few power outages.
  • We lounged on the beach and consumed several beer, while floating off the beach in front of our place.
  • Patrick, who we also met in the Philippines arrived on Koh Tao, after spending a month in Bali.
  • We went diving at Chumpon & Red Rock for the 3rd time.
  • We had all you can eat Thai BBQ (kinda like korean BBQ, but Thai) for only $5.
  • I ran into one of the girls who worked in the dive shop where I did my dive master’s, 6 years ago.

Week 31: Life without internet

April 7, 2009 - Filed under Scuba Diving, Underwater Photography, Weekly Report

Our internet connection has been out for the last 5 days, which means the posting around here has been even lighter than normal. Luckily work’s been pretty slow for the most part, so we’ve been taking a little break from the online world.

Once again we’ve settled into a bit of a routine here, and while it’s nice for us to chillout and not be constantly on the go, it does make for some pretty boring posts. So in an effort to keep things interesting, and because I missed “Foto Friday“, I’ve decided to turn this into a picture post.

Week 30: Settling in on Koh Tao

March 29, 2009 - Filed under Scuba Diving, Underwater Photography, Weekly Report

This week we got settled into our new apartment. It was a lot harder to find a monthly rental than we expected, especially one with internet. Most places that had internet didn’t do monthly rentals, and the few places we found that did do monthly rentals, didn’t have internet. We did however manage to find a place. It’s not perfect but so far we’re quite comfortable here.

It’s a one bedroom apartment, a couple blocks off the main strip of town, on Koh Tao. It’s right on the beach and we have a little balcony overlooking the water as well as a great rooftop patio, both of which make up for the fact that our kitchen only has a microwave. Luckily the food in Thailand is great, and most of it is quite cheap, so while we love to cook, we probably wont be doing much of it over the next month or so. Unless anyone’s got some great microwave recipes.

Week 29: Koh Tao – Back again!

March 25, 2009 - Filed under Weekly Report

It’s been 6 years since I’ve been back to Koh Tao, and although a lot has changed, as soon as I stepped off the ferry, a million memories came rushing back. The first time I was here was in 2003. I spent 2 months here doing my Divemaster Course, and loved every minute of it. Since then I couldn’t wait to come back, so when Mike and I decided to head to Thailand, I knew we had to come here.
