Not long ago, the airline tickets from Europe to Andaman islands were very cheap, just around 500 $ for both ways. We would love to visit this island paradise which is still not overflowing with tourists again. So why don’t you? ๐Ÿ™‚

They say Koh Tao island is one big diving school. And it is. People with wet hair, walking barefoot and carrying water resistant bags are almost only inhabitants of Koh Tao. Diving is the one and only thing you do on this small island ๐Ÿ™‚ Koh Tao also has some fine snorkeling. The best beaches for snorkeling are: Ao Leuk: beautiful setting with palm trees and white sandy beach. The bottom is also sandy so the water is clear blue and it becomes deep very quickly so it’s…

So while Mic is working and I have a sore throat, sardines in Moalboal will have to wait, I’ll post an underwater gallery from Balicasag snorkeling.ย There were a lot of small jellyfish which weren’t dangerous but still stung, ouch. We saw some nudiebranches and at the very end jumped into a school of jackfish, woopwoop!ย If you see them while diving, it’s even more cool because you’re in the middle of the jackfish ball! How cool is that?? Ps. I bought a deodorant in a baggie ๐Ÿ™‚

Diving on Bohol can be very rewarding, especially on Balicasag island. It’s also one of the cheapest diving we’ve ever seen. If you like diving, this is the place for you. What we saw on our dives on Balicasag island, Bohol. Pictures from Go Scuba.

Diving is an addiction. We did our open water course in India, on Andaman islands 7 months ago and we have been on rehab ever since ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s not the cheapest sport (it’s hard when you’re traveling low budget) but it’s just amazing. I’m kinda sad we didn’t do it in Indonesia, especially in Komodo national park (and all the mantas!) but hey, leaving that for the bucket list. We decided it’s that it’s time to refresh diving on Balicasag island, just off Alona beach (Bohol). I must…

Small island famous for its turtle sanctuary. And its true, snorkeling here means you will encounter at least 5 turtles. Big turtles with beautiful patterns, slowly swimming or feeding on the corals. The coral reef is actually nice but like in other places we’ve been on Philippines, there are no big schools of fish, only some. And couple snakes ๐Ÿ™‚ Apo island has a resort (Apo Island resort)ย and some guesthouses/home-stays. You can get a cheaper room in a guesthouse (like Liberty lodge) if you’ll be diving (500P which…

We’re already on Bohol, munching Choco Mucho chocolate bars on the famous Chocolate hills. Take a look at our video with the turtles from Apo Island.

It’s been 365 days since we started from the main bus station in Ljubljana, Slovenia, almost missed our flight due to traffic jam in Italy, made a transit in Jeddah with all the Muslim men and their 5 covered wives, and started our journey in Sri Lanka. What can I say, it’s been one hell of a ride. New challenges every day, some really pleasant (which beach are we going today) to not so pleasant ones (who is going to kill that cockroach). We had a couple of…

Green lush jungle, blue clear water and white sand. Small paradise beaches like the one from Cast Away (no Wilson, tough) :). The snorkeling is decent (if you’re not spoiled by Banda islands, like we are) and you see turtles feeding on the corals. There are several options for a day trip (700P) and you can even sleep on some of the islands. We really wanted to but in the end didn’t find enough people for the price to be friendly. Meanwhile, we’re still enjoying Port Barton with…

As you might have noticed, we really love the island life. Great food, mellow vibe with Christmas lights, salty air and superb snorekling. We’ve chosen the top 3 snorkeling spots that you would enjoy for sure. Sharks guaranteed! ๐Ÿ˜€ 1). Hatta island, Maluku islands Banda islands in general have beautiful coral reefs but the best of the best was the one on Hatta island. Turtles, sharks, huge fish, colorful corals, and even dolphins in the morning. The drop-off was literally just a few steps from the shore. If…
