I'll keep this short, well I'll try.
got back in the early hours from my first week in Egypt and can't wait to go back, just over 6 weeks to wait. Everyone at the Ocean College was amazing, really helpful when asked questions, but also happy to let people have their own space.
saw my first octopus, manta ray, nice big napoleon and some pretty huge morays. I would love so much to be able to show you plenty of pics but.....
I lost my camera on the Thistlegorm (BOOOO HISS!) and my mate was handed an out of air diver on the line who was (we think!) a guide from another boat. the guy didn't even thank my friend for sharing his air, tosser. so a fun day there.
Everyone on the boats I went out on was a good laugh, and I didn't meet a single person all week who I didn't like (besides the dope smoking taxi driver who likes to make his car dancy using the brake pedal at high speed).
Great diving, great food, great company and a great price. if you're thinking about going to sharm, get your fingers into action, get your credit cared out and get booking. I've managed to round up another 4 people to come out with me in a few weeks, so hopefully we'll be able to take over a whole boat!
here are some of the pics I managed to rescue from the hotel PC that I'd downloaded before throwing my camera away...
