    ... coral and an incredible variety of fish. In fact this is the most fish that I have seen on any dive - whilst floating past I was trying to envisage just how many fish were visible throughout the dive. A million, maybe more? At various points, a coral 'plume' rises from the seabed. The current naturally carries you up and over, or around, these coral projections. Behind it there tends to be a spot which suffers less of a current, rather like the shelter sought behind a wall on a windy ...

Otherwise you can face a hefty fine/bribe.

    ... the top of the water with her goggles. I had been looking forward to this time for quite awhile – the kids got quite a sensory overload – I enjoyed observing it.

    We wrapped up after about two hours, showered off above the beach, and got ready to go. Lathan had made a friend named Deddy, close to his age, who spoke a few words of English. He invited Lathan out to Tompaso for his birthday on the 15th of June, but I had ...

    ... have signs up (especially in Singapore and Thailand) warning you not to have durians with you! I like the smell - but I've never been brave enough to try it as it has a bad reputation. So we bought one.

    The fruit has 5 segments, each with 3 seeds. The seeds are covered in a white pulp - this is what you eat. The texture is almost like a large lump of stringy cottage cheese. And the taste is very strong. It's unlike anything else. Surprisingly I didn't dislike it. It ...
