Kristin Bergdahl arrived first time in Ao Nang 2006 to visit her sister Linnea, already a Dive Master with Kon-Tiki. At this time she then did her open water course with Instructor Elin Edlund.
Since then there has been no stop to Kristin’s diving career. She went to Australia for a year, sailing around the Great Barrier Reef and working her way to become a Dive Master.
Kristin couldn’t resist the warm, sunny Thailand and when she got a job offer a Kon-Tiki Krabi, she immediately returned to the land of smiles. After a season of guiding divers around the Andaman Sea, she also earned the prestigious Open Water Scuba Instructor rating.
The interest for life underneath the surface sat deep in Kristin. She spent the summer of 2009 on a marine research base in Indonesia assisting scientist collecting data from the reefs. Inspired by the sea, she returned to Kon-Tiki Krabi once again to teach as an instructor.
Now thinking it is time to grow up, she has left Thailand and will finish her bachelor’s in Global Studies at the University of Gothenburg. Still haven’t forgotten about the corals, she stays true to the ocean and we are proud to present one of her articles here.
