“Four knots on the piece of string, symbolise togetherness and no tomorrow. One knot for each of us. So even if we are apart, we’re together.” Chloë R Stringer.
Travel with the Strings adventures happen together and separately. As you can see from the words of Chloë Stringer – our daughter. Who is studying to become a PADI Divemaster with Sunshine Divers situated in Chalok Ban Kao, on the beautiful little island of Koh Tao, Thailand
Chloë has been studying the theory the last few days – stepping out on a few fun dives with Sunshine Divers and no doubt eating copious amounts of lovely Burmese cooked, thai food from the little restaurant on the resort. Served up by the wonderful Ny or Aung.
Finally getting her fins in the water – she has began the physical task of completing the part of the PADI Divemaster course, she was dreading. The swim test. 800 mtrs with fins, mask and snorkel. 400 mtrs without anything and 15 minutes of treading water.
Stamina Test: 15 Minute Tred.
Can’t wait to find out what’s next involved!
If you’d like to learn to dive on Koh Tao with Sunshine Divers. Read my interview with Natalie Hunt, Sunshine Course Director (the only female on the island to achieve this rank) Or Check out Kim Van Winkle – Sunshine Divers PADI Master Instructor.
Learning to Scuba Dive on Koh Tao, was a wonderful experience. Making friends with Bear, Joe, Natalie, Ny, Aung, Chris and the others really brought to life this wonderful little island. It’s really nice to return somewhere and see the smiling faces of those friends made, who are pleased to see you.
Where did you learn to scuba dive or would you like to learn?
I’d love to know your thoughts…
