German bread!

German bread!

We have a big group of guests here now, 14 divers from California that’s come to scuba dive in Moalboal. This is the biggest group we’ve accommodated during my time here and there’s been quite a bit of planning and preparation. The restaurant here has been the weakest link for a while and we’ve now […]

The Underwater Photographer – Martin Edge

Before I left the UK I went online and ordered a bunch of UW photo books with full intention of reading them all and also bringing them on this ‘trip’ (I still haven’t figured out what to call this thing I’m doing!). Well, I also had a whole bunch of other stuff to do, such […]

Ch-ch-changes…

Ch-ch-changes…

Sadly I don’t really have any changes to talk about… I still haven’t received my underwater housing! I’ve been given a very helpful link with a tracking number that shows the progress of the package, which I’m checking shamefully often. Well, too bad it’s not updating! The last thing that was recorded was the package […]

Size matters

Size matters

A while back Tata showed us some pygmy seahorses over by Coption Point, very cool indeed, but since then the little buggers have disappeared… much to the chagrin of our boss who wants all the action easily accessible to show our guests. Obviously. Anyway, people have previously been able to see the seahorses on our […]

Sardine tornado!

Sardine tornado!

There’s several million sardines in a big ball playing charades with the divers around Pescador Island; one of the main diving attractions in the area. Apparently we’ve been able to see this phenomenon for a long time here but for some reason I’ve missed out on the show until a few weeks ago and now […]

Panic

Panic

Life is now slowly settling back into normality, the girls have left, my mother left this morning, the current two guests leave in a few days and then it’ll be empty here for 18 days. Eighteen. Empty. Today is scary hot and right now there’s a bunch of boys training karate on our lawn, the […]

Elvis has left the building…

Elvis has left the building…

… and so has Carro & Linn, my two workmates here at Kasai. So it’s a sad day here, and as soon as they left it started raining, a sign perhaps?! We’ve worked together since the beginning of this year and I first met them in November so we haven’t really known each other that […]

Long time no type!

Long time no type!

Dear internet, I’m very sorry I haven’t updated this thing for a while… or if I should swallow my pride a bit, Annika & Pelle, here’s an update just for you and the rest of the family! My friend Damian has been over for a few weeks, and all the time I haven’t spent diving […]

Ninja diving

Ninja diving

I went night-diving last night, it’s something I particularly like but for some reason (lazy? too comfortable?) I haven’t been doing it much at all here. Yet! It was really cool, usually it’s only some of the guests that want to do it, so it’s pretty much always very small groups. Which is exactly what […]

Cold again

Cold again

The important guests have arrived and left again; over a weeks of intense preparations, two days of stressed out diving and being on our best behavior… phew! And as usual I was too lazy to make the extra effort and use my new freediving wetsuit instead of my old scuba wetsuit so I got a […]
