I’m surrounded by a deep blue haze. Small locals this region of the world of varying shades of yellow, black, and blue pass by, seeming not to notice me. I take a deep breath in, and blow bubbles back out. Looking up, I can see the surface of the water from down below. I’m a traveler in a new land: scuba diving the Similan Islands in Thailand. Looking back over my 6 days, having completed 18 dives from a live-aboard boat sailing through some of the most beautiful islands this world has to offer, I was privy to quite a few amazing sights.
As a traveler, these are the types of experiences we grow to crave.
The Night Dive
I turned around in the water and saw my other two dive buddies, clearly thinking the same thing I was – I want to see the white glitter!
