Asia | South East Asia | Vietnam | South Central coast | Nha Trang – Stuck in Paradise!
I’m beginning to think that I must have ‘I need a job’ tattooed on my forehead… well… I was finally offered a job that I couldn’t turn down… although, I can’t really call it a job as I’m having far too much fun doing it.
The Dive Shop (Rainbow Divers) I did my Open Water Course with asked me if I would stay on and help out on the boat and in the shop. I was completely gob-smacked by the offer, as it was totally unexpected and staying on in Vietnam certainly wasn’t in my plans. But the opportunity to get further diving instruction and diving for free proved too attractive to turn down.
My days now involve diving most mornings, chatting to customers and hanging out in bars (they have shops in two of the bars here). On the days I don’t dive, I visit the hotels in the area and do a bit of marketing. It’s a tough life and really hard work – NOT!!!! I get on really well with the two guys, Jeremy and Jean Phillippe, who run the place – when I’m not being chucked off the boat. They are both a bit mad – I think it comes from breathing too much compressed air – we have a huge laugh!!!
So, until I move on the ‘Letter from A Broad’ has come to a temporary halt… I will eventually leave Nha Trang – could be anything from one weeks time to 6 months…
