Chumphon Pinnacle

Second day diving with Ban's. Generally I can say this was a good day. Even though we were surrounded by divers all over the place, we managed at least to see something. I have been diving with Alberic and his friends. Alberic is a CSNE living in Bangkok and should leave by september for doing his round-the-world trip as well. Thanks to him we had a cool slow dive.

In the afternoon, I went snorkelling and took loads of pictures of Gaelle, Solene and Maylis doing their Open Water course under the instruction of Chloe who is instructor at Ban's. I met Maylis and Aymeric in the bus while going to Koh Tao and they all know each other.
