We took time to relax the first day and check out the resort. Berjaya Tioman Resort turned out to be a fantastic retreat. The sun was shining, the snorkel gear we tested worked, the water was warm and salty, the bathing suits fit and the umbrella drinks were flowing. It was a great day. We took a walk down the beach, checked out the dive shop, scheduled a snorkeling trip for the following morning and some of us got extremely burned (Dutch.) Other than that slight mishap, the first day of vacation was full of some well needed rest and relaxation.
