Last day of the PADI Open Water course today. Wrote the final exam and had two dives. I really love the feeling of diving, it’s almost like flying. So amazing to breathe under water. Going to make sure it doesn’t take too long until I can dive again.
I’ve finally finished both the term paper and the project proposal and I’m now at a very fancy hotel on Koh Samet with my family. They flew in this morning and we met up on the beach after I got here.
We spent the afternoon on the beach and then tonight we went out to have dinner on the beach as well. Going to be an early night for all of us.
The next two weeks we’re going to spend mostly relaxing, but my next course starts soon so I need to start doing the reading for that as well. Next course is one big field study so I’m really looking forward to it. I’m going to do an interview study focused on refugees with disabilities!
I don’t have much to write right now. I’m studying, or trying to, mostly. Had a meeting with my teacher about the field study today. I’m excited to get started with it, but I have to finish this course’s assignments before I dive into it. Need to finish the term paper about the future of global health…
Been studying a lot lately. The field study that starts the week after next takes up a lot of time and especially worrying and stressing time in my brain. It’s still a bit up in the air, but as soon as everything is in order I’ll sit down and write a proper update about it.
Now I want to finish my term paper, so I can focus fully on the project, and not have too much hanging over me when my family comes next week.
Wish me luck…
Over on Nomadic Matt’s travel blog I found an old article written by a guest blogger. It was a very good, and well written, guide to traveling the Trans-Siberian Railway. I love traveling by train, and traveling in Russia is definitively high on my non-existing list of things I want to see and/or do. If you’re interested, you can read the article here.
