Koh haa, we went back and it was awesome!!!
Karl and Jonathan came along on the dive, and we saw so many stuff. I found 3
ghost pipe fish and Karl found a turtle and a little shrimp.. that even if I
asked karl about 10000 times the name, I can’t remember… sorry… fish memory.
Koh Bida, last day diving for Bernard L it was cool tho… I think Bernard was very sad… and actually, us
too… we had so much fun and it was super cool to be all together on the boat
Day off before the return. We went to the
water falls, that was very nice, even when on the way back, a guide (we didn’t
have any guide), looked at Karl very serious and said: there is a big cobra on
the path…. Yuhuuuu, we went so fast on the way back, that’s for sure, I was freaking
out, but at the same time siging the Indiana jones song in my head…
We stop at a very nice bakery and got some
cakes for diner, got some bottles of wine and went to say bye bye to the boat
crew… that was sad for Bernard…they are so amazing.
We had a lovely last diner together on our
terrace and said our good byes.
Bernard you are amazing!
Today I took the ferry to PP again, and
started a new IDC.
February is going to be a crazy month… but
hey, nothing is too crazy when you do what you really want to do!
I send you all love, and will be super in
touch for the next 10 days.. and then… it will be silence again… sorry, but on
the hills… internet doesn’t happen! xxx
This time has been long for sure… very
long… so long, that I’m going back to PP tomorrow for another IDC and I have
not put any news on my delirious page since I left last.
Shame on me… but not really… I have been
having far to much fun ;-)
Before I left PP, Bernard arrived from
Ibiza, do you remember Bernard?? He was doing his IDC in Ibiza, he is from
Belgium and have a very surrealistic sense of humor!! Hahahaha
Anyway, 2 days before the end of the IDC he
came over and spent 2 days in PP, then came over to Phuket to the IE and then
came with me to my lovely island (he is thinking about moving here forever!!).
The first day back in Lanta, relax and
doing nothing during the all day was in the menu, but in the afternoon, Bernard
booked his full diving holidays, with his amazing private guide (that will be
me, sorry but my grand mother is too far to tell me how amazing I am… J).
So, started diving the next day!!
Julie came over too for some time off after
her IE so we were the 3 of diving during the first 3 days.
Koh Bida the first day…. Nothing to
declare, just good fun, with 2 Swedish guys as well, that were very serious at
the beginning, but as soon as you scrach the surface, were really, really fun
(I think they really love the fact that I hated monkeys and the fact that I was
attacked by a trigger fish…mmmmm).
Hin Muang, Hin Daeng, amazing, healthy,
beautiful corals, so much fun, millions and millions of fish… just fun
Even more fun when my computer start
telling me that I am at 7m when I am at 15, and when the temperature goes from
-50 (brrrrrrrrrrr) to 114 degrees Celsius… interesting!!! So my computer D4
number 2 is in reparation… about my D4 number 1, news to come shortly….
Koh haa, then there is something to
declare… The dive started really nice, and happy and blue and great… perfect
really, we saw a bat dead under a coral… scuba failure bat really… we had 2
other guests with us, so I had to go up a little before the guys. So I left
Bernard on charge of finishing the dive.
When Julie and Bernard arrive on the boat,
Julie is shouting to Bernard (Bernard is the calmest, nicest person ever, and
Julie… she is a Latin…). So here they are, in a very bad mood, and Julie saying
every 2 words, “I could have died”… shit, what happened?
I heve to tell you something before I carry
on: while I was working in the Maldives, the water sometimes was getting cold,
so we were all wearing long wet suits. Long wet suits, cold water and long
dive: you piss in your wet suit, that’s the way it is…
So my friend Nicola told me a trick: you
put yourself upside down, blow bubbles from your alternate air source, and that
will clean the piss out of your wet suit. The first time I did it, I forgot to
get my booties out of my wet suit, so I was full of air (and piss), going up,
up side down, laughing really hard and been very ridiculous. Anyway, when I
told the trick to Julie, I said: ”don’t forget to make sure that your booties
are out of your wet suit”. The answer was “ yeah yeah, for sure, I’m not so
So what happened underwater is that Julie
piss in her wet suit, got full of air inside, grab a stone to try to stay down
and start shouting to Bernard to come and rescue, but because Julie shouts a
lot, Bernard was thinking that she was trying to show him something… and that
When Julie was telling me the story, I
started laughing so hard, that I didn’t make things better… but at the end…
everything was fine, Julie decided to stop been angry and start been happy… so
After this 3 days diving, 9 dives in total
and lots of giggling, we took a day off.
The night before, everyone came to our
place for some drinks and some bqq chicken. It was so much fun, and amazing to
have all the Kontiki crew, plus David and Niclas (the 2 Swedish guys that were
diving with us on day one). We were over 20 people on our terrace and it was
Julie went back to PP the next day, and we
chill during the day and went for a lovely sunset!
Koh rock, I have been saying that I destroy
the computers because of my magnetic field… no body believes me… but I believe
me… we were doing our dives with Bernard and suddently his computer start
saying at 9.5m that the NDL is 1 minutes, and 1 second later 59 minutes and 1
second later 2 minutes and 1 second later 64 minutes… very funny, but not
really, D9 destroyed!! 12 dives, 2 computers down….
Hin Muang, Hin Daeng, nice crazy currents…
yuhuuuu, loved it! Kine came diving with us, and we decided to attack divers
that were literally lying on coral!! A little bit of underwater police! Was fun tho!!
So what happen to me yesterday, to make me see how idiot is the human "bean" (that's for you Karlitos).
So I took the early morning boat to Phiphi, I arrived at the pier even earlier, but it was just an hour to wait. Check in (you show your ticket, they give you a sticker with where you are going just in case you forget on the way) was at 7h30, went into the boat that was leaving at 8h. At 7h55 the boat was still empty, just me an another family, and then suddenly, rivers of people from every nationality start to come on board, no more sitting space, no problem, plenty (not) of outside area.
No many people was going to Phiphi, a lot were going to Phuket (4 of January, close airport... of course!).
Phuket bag are outside, totally blocking the door at the back of the boat, the only door that allowed you to go to the toilet, or to escape, without having to walk on 50 persons sitting on the side on the boat (each side, one was vomiting... lovely).
So I stay there, quiet, looking, and thinking: I can fit through the window, if the boat start sicking, that's good!
And there we go, it's 8h45, sweaty people, complaining everywhere (all enjoying the Thai experience), and then this little muslim girl, start walking around with this massive carton box of oily smelly donut... mmmmmm... yami!
Is not like people are starving or anything in a one hour boat ride!!! come on!!
We arrive to the bay of Phiphi, and I was excited, first because we didn't sinck, and second because I thought wuaaaaaauuuu I'm going to be there at 9h30, good timing!Silly, silly me!
The little muslim girl has a voice, and what a strong one! She start shouting: PHUKET, PHUKET this way!!! and pointing at the sides of the boat. I mean, where do you expect exactly all this people to move too??
But she insist, one more time and people start moving, all at the same time, and all at the same side: did I mention that we are on a boat?
Finally, another boat arrives. It's even more full of people, Looks like a cartoon, with people hanging out of the boat from every side.
THAT'S THE BOAT FOR PHUKET!!!!
The face of the 100 people on the boat.... just made me smile...
People start to get angry, and nothing has happened already.
The best part is to come.
The Thai staff start throwing all the bags (on the Phuket side, very organised this little Thais), into the Phuket boat, all of them, people are no even moving yet, because there is so many of them!
Then the muslim sweet heart said:
No possible every people on this boat, maybe wait next boat at the pier 11h30.
So guess what....
People actually starting jumping out the window to be on the boat with the bags, and the captain got so pissed of, that he drove away!!!
So half of the boat had there bags direction Phuket.... and the other half probably sunk yesterday on the way to Phuket....
You have to love people!
What I do really love is people watching, and NO I'm not discreet, and yes, I find all this situations very funny! (I probably had jump through the window too, but for sure I wouldn't be angry because I had 5 donuts, and I can't go through the window and that's why I lost my bag).
So the moral of the story, is that people are retarded to eat DONUTS: they are BAD for you!!!
It's super busy tho... like busy busy busy, all the guest houses are fully booked, and the ones that are not... very expensive... but anyway... overall, ok.
At least I have internet so I can just be random online...
I actually have a very funny story about the trip on the boat today coming over to Phiphi, Humans... the big majority, just don't f...ing think, like Rebecca will say: F...ing retarded!! but really.
I'm sorry that I feel a little tired now to write down the story, is a little long... but funny, I will take some time tomorrow...
