rainy Bocas del Toro

rainy Bocas del Toro

Posted from Bocas del Toro Province, Provincia de Bocas del Toro, Panama. Bocas, oh Bocas. Why oh why did you rain on me Bocas? Really. It was a bit much. The surge in Bocas del Toro was unusually high. A system was moving through that created bigger than normal waves, so a few surfers from […]

Santa Teresa

Santa Teresa

Posted from Address not found. Friends of mine have been going to Costa Rica for years. Some particularly go to Santa Teresa, a surf destination on the west coast.  I’ve heard so many good things about this country, that it was a relief to finally step foot here and see what all the fuss was […]

liveaboard to Richelieu Rock

liveaboard to Richelieu Rock

Richelieu Rock. That’s what I’d heard. That’s what they said. If you’re a diver in Thailand, that’s the place you need to see. And so began my quest to find the right liveaboard to see this and a few other sites in the Andaman Sea – the Similan Islands, including Koh Bon and Koh Tachai. […]

quiet Koh Tao (and I saw a whale shark!)

quiet Koh Tao (and I saw a whale shark!)

From Bangkok’s Hualamphong Train Station I caught the #85 train (departs 7:30 p.m.) to Chumphon, securing myself an upper berth and a joint on-going bus (from the train station to the pier) and ferry transfer with the Lomprayah company to Koh Tao for 1,200 Baht. There are buses to Chumphon, but after reading many mixed […]

scuba in the Gilis

scuba in the Gilis

Posted from West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. Crystal blue waters. A balmy 30C at depth. And plenty of fish. There’s no better reasons to do some scuba in the Gilis of Indonesia. After my great diving experience on Koh Tao, Thailand I knew that I wanted to pursue diving a bit deeper and get some more […]

Gili Trawangan

Gili Trawangan

Posted from West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. Oh, Gili Trawangan. How easy it is to do nothing and forget about everything when I am on such a laid-back and easy-going island. The hangovers contribute to my shiftlessness, but this island is also known as the party island, and I don’t plan on leaving without exploiting that […]

Koh Tao diving

Koh Tao diving

Posted from Ko Pha-ngan, Surat Thani, Thailand. In the Gulf of Thailand, about 70 km from the coast, lies a little island called Koh Tao. This 23² km island is home to more than 50 dive shops and a copious amount of guest houses, B&Bs, hotels, resorts, villas and some other places that could pass […]

SCUBA review

SCUBA review

Posted from Thailand. At 10:30 in the morning I rocked up to Sairee Cottage Divers and told them I was there to complete my SCUBA review. They told my I would be doing my review with Paddy and to just wait a moment as he was running a few minutes late. Great. A few more […]

Vienna

Posted from Address not found. The train ride from Salzburg to Vienna is a short journey. There are a few train stations in Vienna, with trains departing and arriving from different locations. I wasn’t sure where my ticket would leave me, but the transportation system in the city is excellent and very straight forward to […]
