SCUBA

I'm in Cairnes and I've started my scuba lessons for PADI certification. It cost me a whopping $850 but I think it'll be worth it.

I did my first full day in the pool yesterday, and today is my 2nd. Tomorrow we leave on a boat for 2 nights out to the outer Great Barrier Reef to do about 9 dives including a night dive. You guys may not hear from me during that time because I don't think I'll have cell reception.

I thought it would be tougher to breathe with the SCUBA device but it's very pleasant. It's just like breathing through a snorkel but you get a lot of bubbles and a darth vader noise.

The only thing that didn't work 100% for me yesterday is my ears equalizing the pressure as we dive lower. Mine don't seem to even out as quickly as other people. No problems on the way up though.
