Trading the Quiet for Internet

It’s been an incredible last few days on the island since I posted last time. A few things have happened: we all went out for a fun dive to a reef called “secret reef” that could only be accessed by lining up the mountains of the islands and guesstimating the reef location from there. After…



“DIVE! DIVE! DIVE!”

This weekend was a great time for everyone to recover and relax on the tourist side of the island. Several of us realized we were almost having reverse culture shock! Compared to our quiet nights of cards and fires and watching the stars as they poked out between the coconut trees, the tourists were unbelievably…



Relax, Recover, Repeat

It’s been a hard week of work! For the first part of the week, the weather wasn’t cooperating with us so that we could dive, but after sitting him down and giving him a good talking to, he’s promised to be better for next week and not let it all happen again. Next week we…



Time for the Island!

Hey guys! It’s Casey again, coming to tell you all from a really awful internet connection that’s everything’s great here on the island. We stepped off from our little hotel in Phnom Penh on Sunday, made our way to Sihanoukville, and jumped on the ferry with the locals to find our new home for the…



Saying Goodbye

Our last few days on the island went by so fast! Today we’re back in Phnom Penh, after spending yesterday braving the massive waves to get back to the mainland and bus back to Cambodia’s capitol city. We were so excited to have western food again, and among all the noise and commotion of the…

Compared to our quiet nights of cards and fires and watching the stars as they poked out between the coconut trees, the tourists were unbelievably…



You Can’t Go Wrong on KOH RONG!

Greetings from paradise! Yesterday was another incredible day filled with happy kids, sandbags and lots of new certified divers! We started off the day with some early dives and trash cleanup on the western beachfront. After lunch we had our last groups finish their certifications, so now we can say we’re certified! After lunch, Lou…



Under The Sea

Today was another beautiful day on the island. This morning we awoke to the sounds of the village coming to life as the sun rose over the bay, with chickens clucking and the sound of the village children playing. We had breakfast and set out to start working on our diving skills for the learners…



Welcome to Paradise!

Hey guys! I’m Casey, I’m the team leader on the island for the next month. Also, in case you’re wondering, we don’t have much internet connection here on Koh Rong, (the island,) so do not worry if you don’t see any updates for a day or so; all is well! So what’s happened with us…
