So i booked a scuba dive course yesterday, which was rather expensive but am really excited to get going. Has anyone else just completed a course or is in the middle of one right now?

Without being dramatic it feels like the first step of my travelling plans. Just the small matter of booking a flight now and saving like crazy for next jan.

If anyone else is currently doing a dive course it would be good to get some pointers or just keep each other posted on progress :)

Hmm one of my new favorite shows is tanked, does that count for anything?

A friend who does scuba driving went to Thailand and when he came home he couldn't wait to get back again.

Great beaches, the water was nice and warm and very, very clear and hold out some bread crumbs in your hand and all the fish come up and eat the bread.

Flights are fairly expensive but once you get there, accommodation, food, etc is cheap and you can hire aqua gear there and go with trained instructors.

I just tried posting a response and it disappeared. I've been certified since 1986 and will rewrite it again tomorrow.
