Lots of excitement in Bunaken this week as usual, both in and out of the water!
Initially, my week started off on a bad note with visa issues. Let this be a note to all who are doing their Divemaster course, get your visa renewal done early. I had thought that it would be a quick process, and it would have been relatively so, if only I had gotten the wheel moving earlier. After I turned my papers into the front desk late last week, I was told the process would take longer than I had expected.
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.
From Lembeh to Bunaken, my DMT course has been wonderful.
Dani started off my course in Lembeh with Search and Recovery as well as Wreck Diving, two of the included specialties. Search and Recovery was as it sounds, but Wreck Diving was like no other diving I have ever experienced.
The Return of the Magic – Assisting with Dive Classes
Tim and I greeted our students: Simon and Bronwyn from Oregon and Matthias from France. How incredible of a small world is it that we traveled all the way to Indonesia to meet people from Corvallis, Oregon – less than 3 hours from our home town?
Feeling at home.
There is a song with a lyric that states that “home is where ever I’m with you”. For me the “you” is a wonderful redheaded girl named Sara and where ever we are together is just fine with me. But other things add to that feeling of home.
