... mountains and hills in Laos. The boat is actually run by a family who also lives on the boat. They served us a very delicious lunch. The currency is crazy, as $1USD equals to $8000kip. Hoping that it's a pretty cheap country so I can stick to most of my budget. I am looking very forward to riding the elephants in Laos in a few days. For now, it's just relaxing, playing games like Heads Up and taboo with the group. The acting out ones are really fun because everyone gets really into ...

Then not before long we had arrived at our fourth and final dive site - 'White Rock'. Another way of entering the water is to fall backwards, so having tried ...
... to see a stingray sleeping and hoards of fish I cannot now name! The sensation of buoyancy and the controlling of breathing to take you higher or lower was fascinating. Let's just say I liked it!
Four dives later and I've mixed feelings about exiting the water, we have completed our Open Water PADI diving course (we passed the exam on the fourth day) and are able to dive down to 18m with a 'buddy' anywhere in the world. After some wrangling we eventually decided to ...
