Four months are over now since our last pit stop in Valencia and we have had the opportunity to visit the north of Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. The trip has been mainly inland and in hill areas and we could hear the call of the sea in our souls. We come from a coastal town and need to feel the sea breeze in the face much often. So, the next move was going to be to get closer to the sea, heading to the south beaches and islands of Thailand.
Once in Bangkok we did some research again and booked an Open Water diving course with free transport from Bangkok and free accommodation in Koh Tao -it was a very good deal, around half the price of what it would have cost back home. Off we go! This part of the trip seemed to be different and more relaxed, and we were getting so excited of the idea of settle down for few days in the same place. Not only we were coming closer to the sea, but to a turquoise water one with loads of colourful animals to observe. We coul not wait any longer.
