Scuba J: It WILL change your life!

Scuba Junction: It WILL change your life!

I used to work in financial services. I gave the job up and pretty much my whole life back in England to pursue a new career and find where I wanted to live in the world. I bought a one way ticket to Thailand and thought I would just work it out on the go. I always wanted to have a job that I loved so much that I would do it whether I was paid or not.

I am pleased to say that it is a year later and that is exactly what I have!

It all changed when I came to Koh Tao to do my advance course. The advance course is only two days. In that short amount of time I went from living on the mainland and moving to Australia to giving up my job on the mainland, my plans to Australia and moving to Koh Tao to do my Dive Master. I told the guys at Scuba Junction that was what I was going to do. And I would be back in 6 weeks. I didn’t believe I would actually go through with it. Natalie the manager said ‘It will change your life!’ I thought ‘yer right’. How can it change my life?

It did!

Sure enough I came back 6 weeks later and started my Dive Master. I loved it. Just being underwater blowing bubbles was amazing. I thought I would pass my Dive Master and then go to Australia. However I didn’t and have no intention to. I love it here. I live in paradise with some great people, scuba dive and have a job that I love!
