It's simply just impossible not to love life when it acts like this. I know some people with blogs love to put it up there anytime they have a happy moment in life, as if to reinforce their own belief in it, that life is on occasion a bit better. I consider this a symptom of the jacked up life people live, where everything can be showcased to tell everyone what an amazing life THEY have to become the envy of their friends.
But this, this is truly living on the right side of life.
First I got up early and went out for a run on the beach. Realized after one km or so that my throat didn't quite hold up. Instead I got a bit in the water and started working on kicks and balance. Used the better part of an hour just to stand on the beach, training a bit of kihon and kata.
My god, did it feel good to finally get some kyokushin again and boy was it wonderfull. Warm water, not a single cloud and a gorgeous beach with lovely forrests around.
Then breakfast and diving school. Spent the last two days studying how preasured air effects the human body and what to think about underwater. This morning though we got started on the SCUBA gear. Before noon we just doodled around the pool, getting used to the bouyancy controller and breathing underwater. Then on the afternoon we got into the real deal, diving on the barrier reef! Technically I don't think the reef we were around is a real part of the great barrier reef, but even though the sight was kinda crap it was still amazing when you just barely missed swimming into a massive sphereshaped corall, about 3 meters in diameter. Or when a yellow and white striped fish slowly drifts in front of you, seemingly unbothered.
Got one more day here in Maggie Island, with 2 more dives tomorrow, then I start heading to cairns and next Sydney/new zealand.
f***ing hell, there's ton of s*** I wanna do there aswell, but soon time to say goodbye to OZ... Sure as hell am going to miss this place.
Almost forgot to mention: yesterday we went out a big crew that just randomly got together and hiked around for like 2-3 hours, looking for koalas. The day before we'd been out feeding wild wallabies, but now we're talking about koalas. There's a trail you can walk around something called the forts where there's usually koalas sleeping in the trees close to the path. We found one at least, Well worth the effort. So cute and fuzzy the little b*****.
But that is me signing out and heading to cairns.
