Hiya!

Life is plodding along and my bank account is filling up for my next trip just around the corner...

Oh man - I've been researching the place I want to take scuba lessons at... it looks exactly like the shots of Thailand from The Beach movie!! Too beautiful. I've been emailing the manager (Stein) at the Perhentian Dive Resort. This place is located on a small island off the east coast of peninsular Malaysia (get the atlas out for this one, I had no idea the layout of all those islands until now - it's right below Thailand and China) actually there are 2 little islands, called Perhentian Besut and Perhentian Kecil. I think my place is on the first one.

As far as accommodation goes - that guy will set me up with something cheap. I saw the 'A-frames' on the net. They're triangular, with regular walls and a door and a communal bathroom! There's only 10 a-frames, so it shouldn't be that busy. Dirt cheap too! For the basic, it's 20 Ringgits a night... well, that works out to be 8 dollars a night! That's awesome! just for the scuba lessons (well, 35 days of lessons to get me to assistant instructor)

Then, after that... Australia!

When I head home for the summer, I'm going to act like the tourist and keep up the travelogs - just to give everyone some insight to a fairly unknown Canadian city.

I've attached a few photos, so you all can see what I'm in for in 7 short months.

Oh yes, a trip to London is in the works! Soon I hope!

til next time,
take care!
