Well finding the time while i was in Thailand to complete this dairy was impossible!! Doing all of my diving courses up to Divemaster was very time consuming. Being on the boat all day every day and studying in the evenings took up alot of time. Also i was having loads of fun!!
My idea was to complete the diary when i returned home. That also never happened!!
However my time in Thailand was absolutly fantastic!!! The diving course was great it was the best thing i have ever done!! So much so that i am returning on June the 2nd to become an Instructor! Mermaids dive centre in Pattaya is the best there is and i would recommend them to any one who is looking to train as a diver. There are alot of cowboy outfits in Asia, especially Thailand, but Mermaids is not. There complete service is great, the diving, the teaching and everything else they supply you. If you need something they will get it. The people there are also great, i made friends so quickly, friends for life. I even met my current boyfriend there who is returning with me to become an instructor!!
Pattaya is given alot of bad press, and yes it is a seedy place, but i had so much fun and its safer than people think! There are also some beautiful islands just off of Pattaya that are well worth seeing! And besides its a great place for a wicked night out!
All in all Thailand/Pattaya was a great experience for me and taught me alot of things about myself - more so after returning!! I certainly dont want to be the same person i was when i was in Thailand last time and intend to enjoy the experience in a completely different way this time around!! This time i am going out there to begin my career and my future with Mark. Nearly 2 years back in the UK and both of us are more than ready to escape again!
So bring on June and the beginning of an amazing life!
