Home Sweet Home

It's been a year of homecomings, with a grand total of ~7.5 months of living out of suitcases and in hotel rooms. This time I'm home (Amsterdam) for Christmas and New Years after an incredible few weeks in Bonaire scuba diving to excess. 46 dives in 15 dive days (with two rest days) and a whole bunch of personal bests. Tons of stories too! And best yet, I met tons of great people who have really touched me in so many positive ways. New friends, future coworkers, new students and new local dive buddies.

This time coming home felt a little different. I have quite a strong notition in my head that I'm soon going to pack up and leave Amsterdam to head to Bonaire to live. And I've already booked and paid my deposit for my upcoming (May) instructor course that will allow it all to happen.

Still, my home is a sweet home. And I'm there now. Even though it feels less permanent than it did before leaving, I'm still happy to be back. And so full of stories that I really want to start writing!

Great, you're back, I was starting to get a bit worried that you were stuck at customs again (or worse). Welcome home !!!
