So today was our last day on our first island and it really has set the standard high for our next two. The food has been amazing, almost as amazing as our mums homecooked dinners! I hadn't realised how much I missed vegetables, and yes mum I'm being serious haha! Another lazy day lying on the beach and arguing over who gets to be in the hammock with the kindle.

You need to learn a range of skills, things like removing and retrieving the regulator (the device you breathe through), filling the mask with water and emptying it, taking off the tank and putting it back on, and so on.

... the party capital of the area. It was our most beautiful stop and you could walk around the whole island in ten minutes. We'd been upgraded from 'one coconut' accommodation to 'two coconuts' - and boy, were we ready for it. The downside of sleeping in a flimsy wooden hut on the beach is having to battle with mischievous geckos as they scuttle above your bed, use a bathroom that has no sink and sweep away dead cockroaches from the shower. We may have been ...
