This week was an amazing week. The week started with me (Iman) on the boat to the Bida Islands, where I worked like dry staff. That was the first time for me on the boat so it was very exciting. Thursday Simon and I was in the dive center and helping out Nikko with the cleaning. We also went to Krabi town on a little adventure with the drivers to pick up wood and tool for our work shop heheh. Wednesday I was at the shop with Erika. The best day at the week was Thursday when I helped Andre with his open water course and that was the first dive I did in Thailand 🙂
Friday I’m off because we are going on the snorkel safari and help Malene and I really hope it will be fun. I will tell you more about this in my next blog. Keep tuned in.

So my second week in lovely Ao Nang, I (Simon) helped PADI Instructor Magne at Sheraton one day, i got to clean and sort with the scuba equipment our dive center another day. Had a lovely giant angus beef and assisted on an PADI Open water course. Yet again I also managed to get a pizza slice at Phi Phi Island that was even better this time.  Tomorrow we’re heading off to Koh Haa Yai. No diving for me since im a dry staff this day, but hopefully I’ll get to work on my tan. So far my stay in Ao Nang have been just mindblowning and the guys at Kon-Tiki are just the best, and makes my stay here a memory for life, that I hopefully will never forget.

Newly arrived Kon-Tiki Trainees Simon and Iman. They will keep you posted on their adventures here at Kon-Tiki Krabi. This is their first blog.

So finally in Ao Nang at Kon-Tiki, the trio went troublefree, we landed on monday and got to know the small town à little better. On tuesday was our first day at Kon-Tiki where we spent our time by being in the shop and doing different work task like copying papper, writing sizes on the lifejackets for the boat trip on wednesday. The day just flew by and it was time to head home but first we had to get some food and i had green curry chicken with rice at nice little restaurant by the beachfront.

On wednesday I started my day by heading to the dive center where we got to pack the necessary things such as bcd, fins, mask and much more. After that we headed for the beach where we got picked up on à longtail boat that drove us to the ship that we will use, well on the ship i got to be à dry staff which means that its my duty to make sure that everybody gets onboard after the dives, but first we headed to Phi Phi Island which is à small island between Krabi and Phuket. There i got a guided tour by Nikko who is à snorklemaster. After our little visit we headed off to the dive and snorkeling sites. On thursday i followed Magne to Centara which is à resort, Kon-Tiki has à little shop there where you can sign up for courses and tours, but of course you can always try diving there. Magne had full up with his open water student so i watched the shop with Felicia who also works at Kon-tiki and is also an instructor. My days have just been flying by and tomorrow I’m being à victim on Connys rescue course and I’m really looking forward to it. My few days here have been absolutely amazing and I think that everybody should try diving.

Simon and Iman!
