A house with a view

A house with a view

My fiancee (wahey!) and myself can’t be stopped right now, we’re on a monster-roll; after shocking pretty much every part of the whole extended family by pale-faced falling on my knees and completely forgetting my rehearsed speech we have now decided to take our first step on the property ladder together. After looking around for […]

A New Hope

A New Hope

I’m now back in Moalboal, nicely settling into a life that could easily become routine. When I left the area last year I really didn’t think I would be coming back here this soon, or possibly at all; I was planning to travel around Asia and dive everyplace I could find. How foolish of me […]

800 steps…

800 steps…

I’m currently doing the Advanced Freediver course here, and we’re doing all kinds of freediving; just plain snorkeling out on the reef, statics in the pool, deepdiving and more. One of the neighboring island’s got a 50m swimming pool so we were planning to go to train some dynamic freediving, which is basically just swimming […]

Arriving…

Arriving…

So I’ve now arrived in Moalboal. It’s a weird setup really, the main town, which is actually Moalboal is the around the main road coming from Cebu, but all the ‘action’ is off on smaller roads towards the sea. I’m currently staying in White Beach which is something like 7 kilometers from Moalboal and the […]

Random encounters

My very good friend Ben has a fantastic roof-terrace on the sixteenth floor in Bethnal Green, it’s got a great view and it’s perfect for summer parties. Many of my photos in Flickr are from his terrace… Well, most weekends this year has been completely useless for any outdoor activites, at least ones you need […]

Dive Technician course

Dive Technician course

I’m going up to Morecambe at the end of this week for two weeks. I’ll be attending a Dive Technician course, to learn how to service regulators and to become a certified tank inspector! It sounds like quite a cool course, even though it’s not really what I want to do later… I guess I […]

Wing it!

Wing it!

Since I’ve made it a bit more public that I will be leaving it’s started to become more real in my mind as well. I guess it’s a natural effect really, it’s been quite hard to plan/think about this thing. That’s another problem, I don’t know what to call it! I guess I can call […]

Slight delay

Slight delay

The people at work wasn’t too happy with my decision to leave them, and they specially thought my timing was a bit too spot on… so they have now managed to get me to stay another month and a half to help with this big project we’re working on right now. So I’ll be leaving […]

It’s official

It’s official

I’m leaving the country! I’ve talked to my boss today and given him notice of my departure. I’ll be working until the end of August, then I head to the motherland for a few weeks to say hi to a load of family I haven’t seen in ages and then I’m off! I’m heading to […]
