Just a quick update, finished my diving course yesterday so I'm now a certified PADI diver (wahey) and can now say that i dont intend to do any more exams for the next few years (which I said in May but well that didn't last long). I really enjoyed the course, there was a reasonable amount to learn but it comes really easily after a while and you feel very calm and confident quite quickly even tho you may be up to 18m down. Saw a lot of fish as well whilst I was down there, including some really colourful and inquisitive fish that swim all around you, also some pretty cool moray eels that you can gradualy tempt out of their holes with your finger.
Hope everyones still good at home I'm travelling round the north island with rich for the next week and however long and just waiting for our bus to move on to mercury bay next and then rotorua.
Dad/Mum: thanks for the message, I'll try to continue to make you jealous tho you still have nepal up your sleeve which I'm pretty damn jealous of myself. Will try to phone sometime soon. Love Dan xXx
Brian: Thx dude, NZ is awesome tho I've only seen part of it so far, looking forward to the rest. How's badminton and the family?
