    ... hostels I decided a night in sheer 5 star paradise was needed. I had requested a room in front of the volcano and I was beside myself because that is exactly what we got especially as I managed to get the last villa available for the night. It was dark when we arrived but you could see in the distance the huge dark silhouette a view that I knew would blow our minds in the morning. We settled in to our room, it was incredible.

    ... hard to shut up! At least I can't talk underwater huh? The instructor exams start this afternoon and everyone passed, so congrats the first step guys. I was actually nervous for them, they have so much to remember/do, it must be pretty nerve racking. After work I just went home and chilled out as I have a busy day diving tomorrow.

    ... to the shore. We were going to get out and stand on the other side and wave back to the other two and hope that maybe they would take a picture but: A- there was no way to easily get out of the water and B- when we turned around the fog had rolled back in and we couldn’t even see across to the other side of the lagoon. That was a little unnerving. Then James decides to ask if there are any kind of scary animals that live in the water like a ...

    ... it. I remember being in Nassau for like an hour in the town and thinking if my cruise ever ported there again I would do an excursion and nothing else. I felt like I was almost accosted by locals wanting to braid my hair or children begging. I felt very unsafe there.
