Koh Tao 2015/2016 <3


Alright, then we have made lots of blog-posts with lots of photos from our last trips to our paradis! 😀

This is only the start, it will be lots more. These photos are the last from our christmas/new year trip 2015/2016. Maybe it comes little bit more, but the focus will be for now on the trip we did in April, earlier this year. Big hugs from us /Linda & Tomas



Some diving and snorkeling with friends on Koh Tao


Ok, here it comes some more photos from our paradise. These are from January when we had some really good snorkling- and diving days with both old and new friends on Koh Tao. We had one snorkel-day on the small yacht S/Y Southwind and one diving-day with Sandra & William. And for last a snorkel-day with our thai-friends and some co-workers to Linda!

We miss the Ocean, our diving-gears, masks and snorkels….

Better late than never…

Hello to everyone that follow us here on our website.
We are so sorry that we haven’t give you updates lately..
We have been working a lot since we came back from the Azores plus that we have been working on the photos that we took.
It creates lots of job when we always shoot about 3-4000 photos when we going on a trip. This time we had two cameras and one GoPro with us. So its lots of photos to choose from at first. You want to choose all the best photos and then we need to get some of the photos more exposure, contrast and a piff-up 😉 to be a great photo to show you off. But now is all done and you find the results further down.

The Azores and Santa Maria was totally amazing. An island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean with green hills, high mountains and an barren coastline. Lovely people and cozy small town atmosphere. A bit like the Galapagos but still not. And the flight trip were not longer than the flights up to Norrbotten, this means that we actually liked the island so much that we have started to look for some house or small landplot to buy… you’ll never know whats happens. Hehe 😉
We spent lots of looong hours in the dinghy during the 6 divedays. Always with our wetsuit on and with our mask, snorkel and fins ready to always jump in the water if an Whale or an Whaleshark should pass by. But all this hours in the dinghy was compensated with an incredible calm and quiet ocean, completely windless and crazy blue. Didn’t thought that that the Atlantic Ocean could be so calm and quiet, thought that it always were movement in such a big sea. Amazing!
We got lots of close encounters with Mobula Rays (our thoughts still lives in euphoria), barracudas, small shrimps in thousands that the whole cavefloor where moving, big groupers, stingrays and dolphins and Hammerheads from the surface. What memories we created with eachother and both old and new friends. An unforgettable diving trip that we hope we can do again! Great thanks to the dive center Paralelo 37, our diveguide Paolo, the travel agency PH Travel , Magnus Lundgren – Exposure Expeditions, our friends Marlene and Anne and our new newfound friends Inger, Iona and Fredrik and of course all of you others that was on the trip. Non mentioned, non forgotten! 😀 Many thanks! See you soon again, maybe on a small divetrip to Egypt and the Red Sea…

The Azores – Diving

The Azores – above surface



Now its finally time for a divetrip again! 😀
And this time it goes to Portugal and the Azores!
The islands Azores is straight out from Portugal in the Atlantic Ocean. Blue waters, green volcano islands, big encounters like Blue Sharks, Whale sharks, Mantas, Dolphins and we really hope to encounter som humpback whale or sperm whales! That would be fantastic!
We are back on next Friday, photos coming then but we maybe have time to deliver a photo or two to you.
The flight leaves 6.00AM tomorrow morning and its soon time for bed, just waiting for Tomas who working evening shift and is home around 11.30PM!

Good night and keep clam and go Diving!! 😀

Finally in our paradise again!!

Finally we are here again, our home on the other side of the world. It’s just wonderful to put your feet on the paradise island Koh Tao and our house Frangipani Villa!
Happy New Your to you all!!

4 weeks in paradise. These weeks have been much more calmer than usually, if we think of building, parking, garden and so on.
But on the other hand we have had lots of friends visiting. 🙂 We haven’t had so many days by ourself, but we like when people come visiting us and we can show our Koh Tao for every one whos coming to this paradise island. Next time it will be much more calm we think! 😀
At first we had my old colleagues Amanda and Emelie on visit and at the same time Tomas friends Henrik and Johan from back home in Sweden was here too.
Then our lovely friend and old colleague from Oslo, Marlene, (nowadays she live in Copenhagen) come stayed the last two weeks at our place.
We also had some more friends visiting, but they stayed on some resorts at Sairee Beach, Henrik and Carolin, Linn and Malin and a friend to Linda’s mum, Erik.
Yes, you hear, that it became lots of happy and fun days driving around the island to viewpoints, lovely beaches, favorite restaurants and bars. And one or another San Miguel Light and Chang. The New Year’s party is not to forget and as usual we celebrate both Thai and Scandinavian New Year!! 😀

And of course we did some diving too. We pushed Tomas friend Henrik to his first divecertification and did 2 fun dive with him!

No, now we have finished talking and reading. Our photos for speak for themself! And we long, as usual, already back….
