In the last week of my course I found time to relax a bit and mix “business with pleasure”. I made a creation to put into the artificial house reef and sunk it.
I particularly liked the scuba review: all of a sudden you’re the one that’s teaching skills to others. Realising this put a smile on my face and I had a great time doing it.
My last week and a half (yes, I extended my stay by six days because I couldn’t bear to leave) in Lembeh has been absolutely fantastic. I got the rest of my course requirements completed – guiding certified divers, scuba review, assisting on continued education and my skills and rescue assessment.
My first week of DMT was not all fun and games. I started directly with studying and watching the video’s that come with it. Apart from that there was some diving.
Just after I had finished my second blog, a telephone call from Bunaken brought good news:
There had been a last minute request for an open water course. So I got over there the next day and that was the beginning of a great week.
