Thailand Trip: Snorkeling Day
So through our hotel we were able to book a really cheap snorkeling day. We paid $45 each for two snorkeling locations with breakfast and lunch included. What they didn't say, which is why I think it is so cheap, is that the boat ride to the island where you'll snorkel is an hour and a half away..... on a tiny speed boat..... which got me really really sick.
Our first stop took us to this island where no plastic of any kind was allowed and it was so clean and beautiful I didn't want to leave! Especially since I knew I'd have to get back on that boat.... But this was also where we had lunch. So you could hang out, eat or snorkel. The island was also just gorgeous!
So if you're going to do this I recommend somethings, which I will remember in the future. If you're pale like me wear a rash guard and some kind of underwater pants because I got so so sunburned!! No amount of sunscreen could have saved me. Also pack motion sickness medicine so you don't get sick like me.
I also was so glad we brought our go pro because we go a lot of cool underwater video! I also bought an underwater disposable film camera to bring with me, which is where a lot of these pictures are from, and I loved it! It was great cause the second stop we made was just off the coast of an island so you had to jump in the water.
We also brought our polaroid but this picture got a purple stripe on it and I don't know why... But it's still my favorite picture!
I'm so glad we got to have this experience, despite the struggles I had to deal with. I felt like a mermaid while we were doing this which was such a joy for me. And to have this fun experience with my boyfriend made me really happy. I'm gonna leave my boyfriends blog post about our trip here as well if you wanna check it out. He has four posts about our trip with a lot more detail and probably better photos then me haha
