Now that I'm back from Mike Ball Dive Expeditions, I've got a few more things to finish before I make my final decision. Also, there's new interns in the house! So lots going on.

The next two weeks were nothing short of amazing! I got to do my work experience aboard Mike Ball Dive Expeditions' "Spoilsport". Everything on this liveaboard boat has been designed and redesigned for diving.

Part of the internship I paid for included the 25 certifications I needed to get my full MSDT (Master Scuba Diver Trainer) certification. This allows me to train somebody from a new diver all the way up to a Master Scuba Diver. The Master Scuba Diver is Open Water Diver + 5 specialties. By the time this is over, I'll have more than 5 I can train just based on the stuff I've done on my own.

So before I went to do my work experience on Mike Ball (guess what the next post is going to be about), I took Carl's suggestion and flew up to Cairns a few days early with David for a little relaxation time. Unfortunately it was cloudy most of the time and even rained a bit 

Ah yes...the unpaid internship. Or in my case, the internship I paid for  I had read about these online, and never really understood them until now. Basically they combine all of the fees involved that you would normally pay out of pocket into one lump sum. In my case, that includes accommodations, PADI fees, and a few other things relating to a work experience trip up to the great barrier reef. This has been an interesting few weeks.
