Finally we have made it to the islands and wow, it was very eventful to get here! We decided to get the night bus from Hua Hin to the ferry port which after being two hours late the bus finally arrived and for the next six hours throughout the night (where we thought we would be able to get off to sleep) was a bumpy journey to the ferry port. Once …
... open the lid and the bottle top shot off and hit me with quite some force then fumes were coming out of the bottle! The vodka had exploded. Needless to say we left it then on the street terrified and grateful we hadn't drunk much already*. The crowds were insane and there were thousands of people were sprawled everywhere. Considering it was only about midnight, there were already people paralytic on the street. We developed a very useful no soldier left ...
... on in the pool. We had a different instructor for one of the classroom modules and it made me realise how lucky we were with Bas, this guy was reading out loud to us from the course book, veeery slowwwwly and demanded our full attention at all times - he told off Nikki for taking notes because she 'needs to be listening, mmmkay?' Luckily we had Bas the rest of the time! Mark came with us on ...
... music, not my favorite. Additionally it takes place in the jungle as opposed to the beach where the full moon takes place. I decided to get away from the bungalows as I had yet to meet a person there that I wanted to hang out with. I headed instead to Haad Rin Beach, a bar district nearby. On the way it started to rain.

How has this villa rated in the past?
Asia Divers was our third hotel/bungalow stay in Koh Tao, although our room was basic it was far the best we stayed in during our time on this island.
The hotel was situated in probably the livest part of Koh Tao and we were pleased about that as the past 5 days we were far away from the main roads and although it was beautiful but it was now nice to people watch, walk around shops, walk to the beach and go to different restaurants.
We booked into Asia Diving Resort for four nights but ended up adding another three nights there as it was really enjoyable and Robyn decided to do a diving course with the hotels diving instructors at Asia Divers!
Asia Divers was the perfect training I could of needed in order to complete the course! Unfortunately Aaron doesn't like underwater so couldn't experience it together, however he came out on the boat and we both had a great 3 days throughout the course!
