Day 6

Today we ate breakfast at the chaperone's house (hibiscus tree). Food rations were spare due to the food available being the compilation of all the unwanted or uneaten food in the previous days.

Day 2

It was all served by my cabin which means it was the best breakfast ever. We then proceeded to go down to the marina and meet with our diving...

Day 1

After breakfast we gathered our BCDs, tanks and regulators and were assigned our boats; mine was the Sea Dragon. I set up my gear and became acquainted with my Hungarian dive master, Zoltan. We set out to...
