After 7 weeks of training on Lembongan, I am now a Dive Master!
This is so bittersweet. One one hand, I am so happy and proud to have fulfilled this level of training. On the other hand, I am sad that it has come to an end. I have looked forward to this training for so long. And now it is over :(

The owners of our dive shop, John and Sue invited the team over for dinner to celebrate me and Jo's completion. They recently built a home on a cliff overlooking the bay of Lembongan. Their home was absolutely stunning. It looked like something out of a Architecture Digest magazine. We were blown away by the panoramic views from every location in their home! John cooked some amazing curry and it was an incredibly generous gesture. They gave us a Dive Master Tshirt and a tank banger to make us official guides :-)

I have 3 days left on Lembongan, then I go to mainland of Bali for 2 days to take a break from diving. Next is a trip to Okinawa!!
I don't know why, but I haven't felt overly excited about this trip. I think perhaps I am done with backpacking. The thought of moving around with my backpack from a hostel to the next is no longer exciting. But since this is likely to be my last backpacking destination, I am choosing to embrace it and enjoy all the moments of it :-)
