Photo of the Week is a few days late this round, thanks to the hectic process of choosing a dive school, finding a place to rent and generally settling into my new island. But first, I had to hop from the Philippines to Indonesia via a 24-hour layover in Singapore. Phew! I had planned to head straight to Gili Trawangan as soon as I hit Indonesia in order to start my divemaster course but was sidetracked for a few days by Nusa Lembongan, where my dear friend Neil was spending his days lying in a beach-front hammock and diving with manta rays. Clearly, he needed my assistance on these critical ventures, so I made a three day detour.
I’m loving Gili Trawangan already — I can’t wait to share more photos of the island in the coming weeks!
Gardens By The Bay topped my list of things I simply had to see in my short time in Singapore — and it did not disappoint.
My first stop in Indonesia was to Nusa Lembongan, where I was instantly charmed.
The diving in this country is already blowing me away.
Photo DI could only afford two dives on the island, but with seven manta rays I felt I got my money’s worth!
…And finally I’m settled into my home for the next five weeks!
