Feelings on coming to Bali

When thinking about coming to Bali I am overwhelmed with excitement and anticipation. The duration of which I have waited since winning the contest has added to the overall built up which makes it that much more exciting that finally I am just hours away from touching down.

Of course my immediate thoughts are related to the eagerness to get in the water and start diving. Everything I know up to this point about Bali diving is through magazines, Youtube videos and other peoples experiences but to finally be able to submerge myself in the underwater world will truly be incredible. Of course I could go on forever about how I can’t wait to dive the USS Liberty wreck or venture around Nusa Penida and see my first ‘Mola Mola’ Sunfish, but for me when I think about Bali, I look at what this experience will be as a whole.

I look forward to the many new foods I will be trying. The many clubs and bars I may not remember the following morning. The exploring and diversity of nature and wildlife I will see. The difference in lifestyle I will be living compared to what I am accustomed to back home. The many people I will meet and make friends with both locals of Indonesia but also tourists from around the world just stopping by to enjoy the many things I myself am there to enjoy. How the spiritual and majestic nature of Bali will impact my life. What I will learn about myself while living abroad and how I will adapt to the culture shock. I’ve always been quite open minded and love experiencing new things and luckily since I’ve had the pleasure of visiting different places around the globe like Africa, Japan, Europe, and the Caribbean I have some experience with navigating my way through foreign countries and learning the ways of the locals by the locals.

Of course, since I am far away from home I will have to be diligent and responsible for not only the wellbeing of myself but also my girlfriend. Thankfully I have the Blue Season Bali team to show me the ropes and teach me the ways. I look forward to taking on the challenge of learning new things both with diving and living. If this contest has showed me anything it’s that if you truly want to achieve something you really have to put your heart and soul into it. Your determination only stretches as far as your motivation and with this opportunity I have been granted, I certainly don’t need any added incentives to truly relish on the experience I have ahead of me.

Everything I’ve heard about Bali thus far from friends, family or friends of friends has been that they never wanted to leave. If that’s the case, then I guess all my friends and family back home will have to come here if they want to see me. The balls in their court!
