THAILAND - KHAO TAO ISLAND - 6 days of awesomeness

Well yeah.. I haven't wrote anything for a few days and it is all because I was having an amazing time, no good internet connection and a bit of laziness.

Khao Tao is really nice place, I've enjoyed it to the max. We met many people, have our first "going out and drinking" night after boring Krabi and get ourselves "into the deep water". We became open water divers.
Two years so far, I always wanted to do scuba diving. I said to Maria: "If it's not too pricy, I am gonna do it here in Thailand". And here we are :) We were  checking the prices around Sairee beach and decided to do it at "Ban's diving resort". For 9000 baths they provide you free (fancy) accommodation and "PADI" course. Fair enough. Our instructor Fai is amazing. She had lots of patience and she is a really good teacher. In our group were two Mexican guys Gonzalo and Havier. So the 1st day we were watching a movie all together about scuba diving and the other day we were practicing skills in a swimming pool at our resort and the other 2 we were just diving... Great time!! There are some pictures from our diving but as soon as I find some computer with a cd reader i will move all pictures and upload here.

For a Christmas night we went out. It was a "break time" from our studding and good reason to celebrate.
We took some local rum and few shots from a local guy from the street.  We ended up at "Lotus" beach bar on fire show. After that, Maria just jumped into the pool, swimming and dancing in the same time. :)

We also took taxi boat and visited Koh Nang Yuan small island that belongs to Marine National Park. It was beautiful... I've stayed in a water for an hour...

Yesterday we finished our last 2 dives and took a catamaran speed boat to Koh Panghan island. We gonna stay here for 7 days and then, "Goodbye Thailand!" :(

I really liked Khao Tao... and I am starting to like more Koh Panghan.. Why did we even go to the west coast!!?? However, we are here now :)

Last night we went to Jungle party and it was awesome!! Tonight we'll go to Haad Rin (south) for a full moon party. But in this island it's not all about parties... It is so good to do some trekking, canoeing and maybe diving :)

Much love!
