Yesterday I went Scuba diving. What struck me about this sport is that the gear is such a simple concept that opens a whole new world under the Sea. I was considering getting my Open Water PADI license but decided against it because I am not sure how often I will do it again. It felt more like an ‘experience’ than a hobby.
My instructor was from France and was really good. He put me at ease and was very professional. The PADI place I used is called Calypso Diving and I would recommend it to anybody coming to Boracay looking to dive.
I am currently sat in their restaurant writing this post and as you can see from the second picture the views here in Boracay are fantastic.
Dennis, my friend who will be 40 on Monday, has had to go to a work conference in Manila until Sunday evening so I am looking for things to do. Yesterday evening I found a restaurant that did nice vegetarian food and had a great singer who sang the type of acoustic songs I like. On the way back to my room I saw some pool tables so I stopped to play a few games to practice ready to play my brother when I get back to the UK.
Talking of coming back to the UK, over the last few weeks I have decided that 6 months constantly travelling will be enough for me, so I am looking at heading back to the UK in January. This plan has changed where I am heading from the Philippines. My plan was to go to Thailand but I have now decided to head to Vancouver in Canada and start heading back towards Blighty. This will mean that when I return I will have circumnavigated the globe, which I think is pretty cool. The other countries that I want to visit will remain on my bucket list and I hope to explore them sometime in the future, hopefully with a companion.
