Another day of diving in the books! We woke up early for a morning dive before breakfast, with highlights including seeing a white tip shark!! We then had breakfast and a short break as we waited for the speed boat to arrive with the new people. It was a small group, and we joined them for our second dive of the day. We then had a break and some time to pack our bags before lunch and the third dive of the day and final dive of the trip. Afterwards, we packed up our equipment and it was time to depart on the speed boat back to Phuket.

I was sad to leave as I had a blast on my trip. It exceeded expectations, with seven dives over 2 days/1 night and more colorful fish than I could count! Highlights included: school of barracuda, giant moray eel, octopuses, white tip shark, lionfish, and a family of eagle rays! It was amazing.

I got back to Phuket in the evening. I checked into my room and saw someone familiar in the room. Took me a few minutes to place her, but it was a girl I met in Hoi An, Vietnam, on the street food tour that my hotel put on! I had only briefly talked to her that night, but she stuck out to me because she was from Hillsborough NJ! Such a small world that she was now in my room in the Thai Islands, around a month later!!

Anyways, it was me, her, and a Irish girl in my room -- they were both great! It was late and I was pretty wiped out, but we hung out in the common area with some of the other people that I had met when I was there a few days earlier. The girl from NJ, Jodie, had mentioned that stranger things season 2 had come out this week, and since we had netflix at this hostel, we ended up binge watching four episodes! Pretty solid night.
