|Arash and Matt join me back on the boat|
For some this is exactly what it is like.
My Iranian friend, Arash, had joined me for this experience and I was a little nervous for him as he had been expressing some concerns all morning. He seemed genuinely nervous and I reassured him, telling him it was going to be easy once we got in the water. He said he would copy what I did. I giggled and suggested that if I looked like I was drowning then he should do his own thing.

My heart goes out to the family and friends of these young people who were in the prime of their lives.
The small community here is devastated by these attacks and is in a state of mourning. Last night a candlelight vigil was held on the beach and flowers were laid on the popular and beautiful Sairee Beach where this gruesome event took place.
There is much speculation and miss reporting surrounding the event and the events that followed. As usual there were many of us enjoying the entertainment on Sairee Beach that night and the police have their work cut out but it would appear they are doing all they can and eliminating as many as possible as quickly as possible. All we can do is let them do their job and hope they find the killer soon. Koh Tao is NOT on lock down and ferries are running to and from the island as normal.
Rest in Peace David and Hanna

|This spider is for display purposes only!|
"Is that a spider?" shouted Kerry from the next room. Slightly embarrassed for my reaction I replied "Yes. ITS MASSIVE. AND ITS REALLY FAST!" feeling the need to justify my reaction! "Ha ha! That will be a Huntsman" came the helpful reply!
