Rescue Diver Course

After one brief night on Koh Samui, I took the early ferry to Koh Tao on Tuesday the 25th of Jan docking at Mae Haad Pier around 10am. Just under 3 years ago I had left this island, having fallen in love with diving, as well as the island itself. It felt so good to... Continue Reading →

Reflection on 3 Years Travelling

The world was a very different place when I departed. It was 5 am, 28th of October 2018. Dark and cold, a fine drizzle hung in the air. A final embrace with my parents on the outside porch. An embrace that wouldn’t be repeated for 1140 days. A little over 3 years. But this isn’t... Continue Reading →

My travel route wasn’t direct, I first flew to Singapore where I had a 2-hour layover before flying onto... Continue Reading →

Final Week in the Philippines

The journey was rather a long one, comprising of a ferry, bus journey, taxi, another ferry and finally one last taxi. Taking... Continue Reading →

Malapascua

On the 14th of March, I flew from Puerto Princesa to Cebu City. The flight was once again uneventful however I was seated in the very first row of the plane, free of charge due to my seat allocation which was very nice. Extra leg room and all that. It was short lived however as... Continue Reading →
