Trying to Leave Koh Tao

by becca on January 18, 2010

Once we decided against getting our divemaster certification on Koh Tao, we figured we’d be here diving and hanging out for about five days. It’s now been two weeks, and we’re planning on leaving tomorrow.

The days here have been the epitome of island life. Diving days start early, but if we’re not diving, we sleep late, meander over to the beach, read a book, sneak into a resort’s pool… But it’s not all lazy, we’ve taken a few trips over to the island of Nang Yuan, which is actually three islands connected by sandbars, for snorkeling. Nate’s been sharpening his underwater photo skills and we’ve both been practicing our freediving. Nate’s even taken to picking rocks to weigh him down. Before I basically broke my toe trying to jump off Nate’s shoulders in a bay (what a clutz), I was going to a yin yoga class.

Our meals are mostly eaten at beach side restaurants and snacks of fresh fruit, fruit shakes, BBQ skewers and savory or sweet Thai pancakes are readily available. Sunsets are amazing, and nights can consist of varying degrees of excitement: chilling out on a bean bag listening to the waves; watching an acoustic set; checking out the ladyboy show; or dancing at one of the beach parties, drinking buckets (literally buckets) of Thai rum and coke, and watching the firespinning and fireworks.

Sticking around for two weeks has allowed us to make friends, from everyone at Phoenix divers, to the girls at AC Bar to a sweet German couple that likes snorkeling as much as we do, and we’ve had a great time hanging out on Koh Tao.
