This last week has gone so fast I cannot believe we are finally escaping the clutches of Koh Tao!!!!

We are packed (we'll almost)and make the long trek back to Bangkok tomorrow for the final time. We will spend two nights back on Koh San Road then fly to Borneo on Sunday 3rd September where Averil & Sophie will meet us at the airport. They have a huge itinary planned to keep us occupied. Can you believe its September tomorrow?

We have been here so long it almost seems like forever. Ben has had the most amazing time with his diving and has completed his dive master course and clocked up over 120 dives in 2 months so he can work anywhere in the world. Thing is now he needs all the gear to go with it which costs a small fortune! His next step is to do the Instructors course next year (you have to wait 6 months from first doing your Open Water)so he better be earning some big money in Oz to pay for it! I have been some what board like I've already said there is simply nothing to do except dive, dive, dive. Having said that I am glad I finally plucked up the corage to finish my Open Water and am looking forward to trying diving in Borneo where they say some of the best diving in the world is.

So we spent our last night at Nano Bar (see pics) having a few beers and a good laugh. We set off our wish lantern and watched it float off into the night sky. Ben was more drunk than he thought when he drove us home!

We've made some great friends here in on Koh Tao and hopefully we will be meeting up with some of them for xmas in Perth for that beach BBQ we keep talking about. I doubt I will be suffering the KOh Tao Syndrome (KTS) but Ben may need to join the KTSA for a while. Hope to see you all again soon boys & girls. Have fun, stay safe and happy diving!!
