A year later and it’s time again!

A few days ago it was one year since we started school in Rangsit Thailand. It’s crazy how fast time flies! And I still haven’t sorted through all photos I took during last year, so I couldn’t easily find any pictures from the first few days in Rangsit, but here are some random photos anyway.

Now, with it being three months since I left Thailand and the university in Rangsit it’s time to start studying again. This time in Sweden though, and only as a part time student (while working full time). I just started the Master of Public Health Science Program at a university close to where I live. However, I will be a distance/online student. The entire program is a program without any physical classes or meet ups. Which is fantastic since it’s four years of studying and I don’t know how long I’ll be staying here. But now I can study from anywhere in the world.

Planning a diving trip

Since I just started my job I can’t take any vacation days this summer. In Sweden we get 2 vacation days for every month we work, and since I’m working 6 months, I get 12 vacation days. I want to use them to go diving. But my plan is to use two weeks (or maybe 1,5 week) in November or December and go to Mexico or somewhere else warm and sunny where I can spend some time on the beach as well as diving.

That leaves me with a couple of days that I would like to take in the end of August (but I think that’s difficult, people aren’t back from their summer vacations yet so I might not get the days off) or the beginning of September. With only a long weekend off, I can’t travel very far, but I would like to dive in somewhat warm water (Norway and the UK feel too cold…). When I’ve done my “best diving in Europe” searches on Google one country keep popping up on the list: Malta.

The problem is now to figure out which dive center to go with. There’s so many! Do anyone have any experience with diving in Malta? I’ll take all the tips and ideas I can get.
