PADI Open Water Diver sucessfully accomplished :)

It is done! We've completed the certification today with our 4th open water dive on dive-spot 'meno wall'. The theory exam was done yesterday already, whereby the practical part was way more exciting.

We finished with a lot of big turtles, batfish, angel- and trumpetfish and some squids. In the morning we've seen a baby- and a white tip shark, just chilling on the bottom in front of us. The shark was about 1 1/2 meter long, really impressive to log that down in our diving logbook. One of the turtle just swam right above Ksenia, it was again a beatiful expirience here on Gili Trawagan.

More about the seen fish and pieces out of our logbook after we returned, unfortunatly we haven't made any underwater pictures, but the expirience will stay in our memory forever.

Tomorrow we'll pick up another fun-dive at sharks-point in the morning, as soon my tingeling in the toes becomes any better ;)
On monday we're planning to leave in the morning again with the. peraman boat to Padang-Bai Bali, but I am honestly not looking forward to it. Now I am more looking for a shower and then getting boozed at the pub with our instructor jordy, who really did a great job training us. We will miss his patience and professionality - he knows really a lot about the spots arround the Gillis.

The whole team at http://www.manta-dive.com is really really nice, check out the page for more infos and pictures - I can totally recommend their service at the best on Trawangan. Ask for Jordy if you're dutch or speak english, and you will enjoy diving like we do. All the best to Tim, Ben (we missed to say goodbye, he left for a six day diving trip to the Komodo islands), the girls, Laura and Anthony as well.

To be continued, need to get rid of the salted water - and the night starts already.
