We've really been enjoying ourselves on Ko Lanta, an island off the south west coast of Thailand. Lanta has a great mix of lots of places to eat/drink, beautiful beaches, friendly locals, fantastic weather and a very relaxed vibe. But best of all, we have learned to scuba dive and are loving it! We are fully certified Open Water divers and fingers crossed that by the end of the week we'll be advanced Open Water divers (we went to just under 30m deep today..) Discovering the underwater world is truly amazing and we are currently considering becoming dive masters so we don't have to come home....We saw turtles, leopard sharks, stingrays, jellyfish, moray eels, peacock mantis shrimp, seahorses, trumpetfish, squid, pufferfish and countless other creatures of the deep, not to mention some amazingly beautiful coral.
 
We are also loving the fantastic Thai food - our favourite place serves up tasty Thai dishes for just over 1!
 
Sadly we are leaving Ko Lanta on Saturday to head up to Bangkok for 5 days before getting our flight back to London (unless it keeps snowing and the airports shut - we can only hope :)
 
Also, when we get back to London we will be homeless (!) so if anyone knows of a nice place to rent in Northish London please let us know...
 
Also, Heli is jobless and if anyone knows of any paralegal etc jobs available then please let us know...
 
Hope you are all doing well, we are off to the beach now to soak up the sun :)
 
See you (increasingly) soon

Koh Lanta on (nimestaan huolimatta) paratiisimainen saari, mista loytyy upeita hiekkarantoja, ystavallisia paikallisia ja toinen toistaan parempia ja kasittamattona edullisia ruokapaikkoja. Myoskaan saassa ei ole valittamista - aurinko paahtaa taysilla aamusta iltaan, mutta yot on vahan viileampia.
 
Kaikkein parasta saaressa on kuitenkin ymparoiva meri ja se, etta olemme kummatkin oppineet sukeltamaan. Kavimme viime viikolla nelipaivaisen PADI Open Water -sukelluskurssin mihin sisaltyi nelja sukellusta, ja ihastuimme kummatkin heti merenalaiseen maailmaan, mista loytyy vaikka mita otuksia. Naimme mm. kilpikonnia, leopardihaita, merihevosia, meduusoita ja muita ihmeellisia otuksia.
 
Lahipaivien suunnitelmiin kuuluu lisaa sukellusta, ja lauantaina jatkamme matkaa Bangkokiin. Sielta palaammekin sitten Englantiin perjantaina 20. helmikuuta - vaikka mielellamme jaisimme tanne viela vahan pidemmaksikin aikaa... Viikko pari sitten ikavoimme jo hieman omaa kotia (jota talla hetkella ei tosin ole) mutta sukelluskurssin myota olisimme enemman kuin valmiita jaamaan tanne viela muutamaksi viikoksi...
