The plan has changed. The excitement of doing this trip with a like-minded friend came and then went when my friend realized she wouldn’t be able to afford it. A solo road trip is just as exciting though, maybe even more exciting.
Apart from that, I now have the option of signing up for a commercial diving course which lasts for virtually the whole of December, and the entire duration of my vacation time … so there are choices … choices … choices to be made. I might not get a month off any time soon again to do a commercial diving course, and … it is a bloody good tool to have under my belt.
