Padi has a contest for new Dive Masters. To enter you have to have just finished your DMT, so I will have to wait a couple of weeks to send this in,, but I thought I might share it with all of you in the meantime.
The question is “what do you like most about your Dive Master Training program. The hard part of this question is that you only have 50 to 100 words to answer it. I guess I could answer it in just two, “the people” but there is so much more I could say on the subject. But rules are rules so in exactly 100 words,
Simply put, The people. From the locals teaching and guiding, the other pro’s working at the resort to the guests just there to enjoy their holiday dives.
A collection or menagerie of people from around the world speaking one language, “diving”. This ever changing group consistently evolved from strangers into a village, week after week, sharing adventure’s, tips and of course photos!
Gathered either on the boat’s, around the pool or café or just in the dining hall, bonds were built that stretch around the globe connecting us still, like the hydrostatic cycle connects all the waters.
Yep, the people.
So to all those we have met, and all those we will meet though this wonderful activity of diving we all so love, I give up a thought of thanks as my diving continues to evolve I too evolve and find myself a better person for the dives and the people I have shared them with.
