Sri Lanka

Before I get into the nitty-gritty of my time in Sri Lanka, I must first address a few key things that happened before I arrived. I spent my final week in Thailand in Bangkok, mainly recovering from having two wisdom teeth extracted. You’ll recall from my divemaster blogs, that I had planned on having these...

Divemaster Part II

In part one of the Divemaster series, I wrote up to the halfway point of my time on Koh Tao. The first 6 weeks weren’t without their troubles. First, a tooth infection, followed by an ear infection, but in amongst all that, I still managed to get a fair amount of diving in and enjoyed... Continue Reading →

Divemaster Part I

Firstly apologies, I had planned on updating the blog as I went along regarding the divemaster course, but anyone who follows my Instagram will be aware I have now left Koh Tao and am a fully qualified PADI Divemaster. Go me! Although this does now allow me to update the blog by looking back across... Continue Reading →

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

An embrace that wouldn’t be repeated for 1140 days. A little over 3 years. But this isn’t... Continue Reading →

Before NZ, answering the question “where is your favourite country” was tough. I’ve been to... Continue Reading →

In another blog, I shall reflect a little on my time here, but before getting there, we must finish the road trip itself.In the last blog, North Island Part II, I finished with my time in Rotorua....

North Island – Part II

After leaving New Plymouth and Mt Taranaki I headed up the coast, my destination being the Waitomo Glow Worm Caves. I made a few notable stops along the way with the highlight being the Three Sisters & Elephant Rock. These are sections of coastal cliffs that due to erosion now stand isolated in the ocean...

North Island – Part I

After the 3 hour Interislander Ferry ride from Picton to Wellington, I touched down on the North Island for the very first time. Having been in NZ for over 6 months it was good to finally start exploring this part of the country. The South Island is actually 32% larger than the North, however, the... Continue Reading →
