Learning to Scuba Dive in Koh Tao, Thailand

Scuba Diving was never on our radar or something we'd ever seriously considered doing.  During our time in Barcelona, we met fellow RTW Travelers, Angelo and Johanna, who told us about their time diving and how they fell in love with it during their trip.  Minh and I voiced our concerns about how it...
