Time for the annual whinge about how I’m not very good at this blogging business. I’ve actually moved to Hong Kong since my last post, so, it’s not even like I haven’t been up to anything exciting. I’m just shit.
Anyway, despite being in one of the world’s most exciting cities, and the most excellent of bases to explore a specific region of this wondrous world, last week was my first time indulging in just that. It was a bit of a whimsical, spur of the moment trip, since Thailand has never been particularly high on my list, purely because everyone and their mum loves it, and I’m into slightly more remote locations. But, my best friend, who I haven’t seen in eight years, was there so, as if I needed more persuading than that.
She is an underwater photographer, and likes being in the water. A lot. Whereas I don’t remember the last time I was in the ocean – that isn’t a joke. So this was fun.
But for real, it was, because there is a whole ‘nother world down there – like a total tourist, my glee moment came when I saw the angry yellow/black/white fish from Finding Nemo! But then Sera held her breath and got this awesome footage (not on her usual shooting apparatus – she had appropriated my GoPro) of an enormous school of yellow fish. Off to school I guess.
I was only there four days, and hesitated one day too many over whether I wanted to give the whole total submersion underwater with a massive tank of gas on my back a go, but after this, I would definitely give it a go and I would go with these guys Aquanauts Scuba, in case you wondered.
