Ko Tao arrival

Well, this is what I'd been looking forward to for 6 weeks. Especially after the disappointment, and filth, of Vietnam's beaches. The place looked beautiful from the boat, golden beaches with forested hills behind. And rain. Lots of rain.

So we disembarked at Mae Head, and grabbed a taxi (pickup trucks here) to a nearby bungalow complex. The easy way in new places when you have heavy gear is a night in the first place you see, followed by a scouting mission the next morning. This achieved, we spoke to Ban's Diving about the PADI Advanced course. A reasonable price, and accommodation free for 3 nights. Sign here. Don't mind if I do. So, all signed up to start the next morning, we went off to hunt down The Colonel...
