Have spent the last two days doing the diving course. Tomorrows the final day which me and Luke have to complete two more dives to become certified PADI open water divers. It is quite frankly amazing when your underwater swimming with fish who dont seem bothered at all that you're there. We saw a sea snake which our instructor told us afterwards was 18 times more deadly than land snakes. Wish he had kept that information to himself to be honest.

Had a couple of mishaps when I had to fill my mask with water and then empty it without coming to the surface. Also panicked a few times and ended up shooting out of the water. Although quite frankly would rather make the mistakes when I've been close to the surface because if you panic 18 metres underwater and try to get to the surface your lungs explode. Which sounds kind of painful.

Not much else to write about really. The goddamn mosquitos seem to have got fed up eating Luke and moved on to me. Weather has been lush in the day. Theres been a storm the last couple of nights out to sea, which was awesome when you saw the lighting light up the sky.

Oh and tomorrows my birthday so everyone feel free to donate using the button above you tight gits. I know you can afford it. You work hard enough.
