And We’re Outta Here

This morning we said our final farewells and left our beautiful island for new adventures. We took the local supply boat to the mainland, which is an authentic experience by itself. We rode on board with all sorts of delicious and freshly caught seafood. Then we caught tuktuks to our lunch spot, and awaited our…



Is It Already Our Last Day?!

WOW its gone fast! Cant believe today is our last day hanging out in Krong Sangkat! We have had a very productive and fun program, and it will be tough to say good bye to this amazing island. This morning we finished up our rubbish duties, and gave the house one last quick clean. Then…



WOW its HOT Wednesday

It has been an absolute beautiful week here on the island! And it didnt even rain today! We started out the morning with another garbage clean up… you can never do too many with a bunch of dogs and kids running around! Then we all packed up our dive kits and headed to the boat….



Deployment Day

“Today will go down in history as the day the reef pods were deployed!” (*said in astronaut countdown voice) Thats right we did our in water marine work today! We had a full day of diving and fun! This morning we started off the day with a house clean up and rubbish disposal. We basically…



No Mopey Mondays Here

Today was quite possibly the most productive day yet! We started out the morning emptying our rubbish bins and cleaning the house. Then everyone got in for a fun dive! The visibility unfortunately was quite poor again, but at least there was no current! Then we cleaned up all the rubbish bins in the village…all…



We’re All In Need of a Good Lazy Sunday

Today has been raining on and off all day, and is a bit of an over cast day…No worries, we could all use a relaxing day anyways. So, you guessed it… we took advantage of our last sleep in day and stayed in bed super long this morning. The day has been filled with playing…



Saturday Adventures

I apologize for not posting the saturday blog earlier… last night when we got home the internet was quite patchy, as a storm rolled in. BUT never the less, we had a blast anyways! Yesterday we all got to sleep in (which means 8 am here)! We played cards, played with kids, and took it…



Is It Friday Already?!

WOAH! This week absolutely flew! We all cant believe that our first work week is over! And despite the weather we have been rather productive 🙂 This morning we did another garbage haul to the incinerator, and we picked up garbage all around our house, the wells, and the common areas. We even had some…



All Day Diving

The weather has finally cleared up! WOOT WOOT! There has been some rainy patches on and off all day, but luckily the clear bits last longer than the rainy bits. Today, the advanced divers went on their naturalist dive in the morning. They had some reference photos to study, and then tried to identify the…



Wet & Wild Wednesday

Today has certainly been eventful! We started out the day by having quite the storm around 5 am. We got to experience real monsoon weather…roof tiles were dispersed and everything was soaked. But that didnt damper our spirits…We still headed out to work in the village at 8 am. First we worked at the garbage…
