He was the dive master who took me on my very first scuba diving trip 4 years ago. I had no idea what I was doing then, and he guided me under water holding my hand the entire time. He also took me around the island on his motorcycle and showed me stunning views of the island - he is a big reason I am in love with Lembongan.
When I arrived here, I was on a mission to find him. Good thing this is such a small island - as soon as I mentioned his name, all the dive masters knew him. But unfortunately, he moved off the island and is now working as a dive master on mainland of Bali. I was so disappointed.
Then yesterday, we were diving at Crystal Point and a boat crew said to me, "do you want to see Pacut? He's over there!" His boat was next to ours
Today, I went on a morning dive and when I returned to Lembongan, Pacut was on the shore waiting for me! I was finally able to hug him and that was a special moment. He was off from work today so we went back the memory lane in the afternoon, catching up and visiting the places he took me to 4 years ago! It was surreal, riding the bike with him again around the island.
Today was awesome :-)
I am in love with this island all over again.
