    Bali Diving Course To Become Open Water Diver

    Diving is not something that is not done. There are many stages and processes of learning that must be passed to be certified as divers. For most of those who are considering learning to dive, the water session is a little concerning. For certified water divers, you must go well. Let’s discuss how the Bali diving course session makes you become an open water diver.

    Season 1 Open Water Session on the Bali Diving Course

    The first water session brings you to the experience of introducing diving equipment. This Bali diving course teaches you basic skills. Maybe for some people it will be a little boring, but this is an important condition that will become a habit during diving. Comfort is the most important, both the convenience of using tools or your comfort while in the water.

    Some skills that will be introduced in the Bali diving course:

    Removing the regulator, which the regulator is connecting to the air supply. The regulator will connect to the tank and drain air through the hose. The funnel must be gently between the teeth and lips. Sometimes you will release the regulator to take photos and smile. This allows water to enter your mouth. To return to breathing air from the regulator, water must be removed. The method is, you can blow air into the regulator. Regulators are designed to blow air which will then bring water to the regulator. Use the cleaning button if there is a change and you don’t have enough air in the lungs.

    Cleaning a mask is important to keep your eyes under the sea. Even if your mask fits on the face, it is possible to leak. Cleaning water is very simple and easy to learn. The method is to move water where the instructor will help and ask you to lift a small portion of the mask and let the water cover as clean as your mask. Then place your hands on your forehead and throw your breath through your nose normally to force the water out of the mask.

    Season 2 Open Water Session

    In the second session at the Bali diving course, you will develop skills that are ready to be learned and add what you already know.

    Buoyancy control

    You will use the pre dive float method to determine the amount of weight you need when diving. BCD adjustment will form a neutral buoyancy, where your condition is neither floating nor sinking.

    Snorkel

    The second session has elements on the surface when you will use a snorkel that will later switch to snorkels and regulators.

    Fully flooded mask

    You will develop the half-flood mask, replace the dislodged mask or keep the mask in 1 minute.

    Bali Diving Course Open Water Session 3

    Session 3 is the improvement of the previous session with an additional 2 new skills in diving. Cramps cannot be avoided by all divers. This session is where you will release the cramps of yourself and your friends. This is important to maintain the safety of you or all who are in the dive group.

    Emergency swimming assent where you will return to the surface when it runs out of air. Please note that if you do not know the knowledge of returning to the surface correctly it will cause decompression. The knowledge you get in session 3 helps you get back to the surface unscathed.

    Bali Diving Course Open Water Session 4

    Diving doesn’t just describe something fun. You will be trained to help other divers who are too tired to get back to the beach or to the boat. Diving also teaches to care more about your surroundings.

However, the more you succumb into your fear, the greater the regret you will feel later.

    How to deal with travel fears properly

    Dealing with travel fears properly

    There are many types of fears when it comes to travelling. You fear not being able to afford a simple trip. You fear of leaving responsibilities at home.

    You fear of not being able to interact with new people on the trip. You fear of the dangers for being in new places. You fear not having skills to solve problems during the trip. There are more other fears you have in your mind. So here are some tips to overcome your travel fears:

    1. The most common fear people experience is when they are going to travel abroad. The sense of being too far from their comfort zone make them feel or worry and fear. To overcome this fear, you need to remind yourself that the travel is your privilege because not all people can afford it. Besides, you are not the only one who travel abroad. You are not the first person to do it anyway. You may have friend who did it before you and they came back home just fine in one piece. If they can do it so do you. In fact, people younger than you did it just fine so you must convince yourself that you can do it.
    2. Be confident and let the fear being washed away. You have lived this far to show you that you are capable of handling things. Thus, it is not that different when you need to handle some problems you may encounter during your trip. Everything is solvable anyway. You are smart and capable. Try to talk some sense to your mind so that you will be brave and overcome your fears. If you already outside of your door, there is nothing to worry about and just do it before you regret it.
    3. If you think you cannot get away from responsibilities at home then it is a total lie. Everywhere you go, you will always have responsibility. You will have responsibilities even when you travel abroad. You are responsible to not disrespect people. However, you are human and you are capable of taking care of responsibilities naturally in your way. Responsibilities at home can be taken care of if you don’t think complicatedly.
    4. Basically, human is social person. Even the first human on earth are in pair. That’s why you don’t have to be afraid of not being able to make friends during your trip. Even if you think you are not very social, you will always find a way to make friends. There are solo travellers out there you can make friends with. Besides, everyone always want to make friend that it will come naturally.

    Surely, money is important if you want to travel somewhere. However, you can set a certain budget. Besides, travelling is also about learning and self-discover.

    That’s why people who travel a lot are also awesome people who keeps getting better and better in personality wise at least. Those who have experienced meaningful travel learn many new things every time they visit new places.

    How travel can help you becoming a better person

    You are getting better at social interaction.

    Like it or not, you need to interact to new people when travelling. Making friends must be hard for the first time when you are on a trip. However, you will get better the more you do it.

    After experiencing trips for many times, you will start being more confident talking to strangers.

    Along with getting good at social interaction, you will also be better at conversation. You will become better at small talk. At first, you will start to ask basic questions about where the others are from, where they want to go, etc.

    In the meantime, you will be able to ask more interesting question that can reveal other’s true-self.

    Tips For Going Solo In A Trip To The Wild For First Time

    Dreams are meant to be followed and realised. And I am sure that you will do many things to ensure that all of the dreams that you think can bring you happiness are the worth trying struggles. So does a solo trip into the wild that has its own charm and interest to be an “ode” for many of passionate travellers out there.

    For those who have been watched the 2007’s movie “Into the Wild” ago, no matter how sad the scenes were to be alone and independent in the jungle, I am sure that many travellers are inspired by how beautiful to lived up such life in a bus that somehow confused me how it could be there.

    Tips for going solo in a trip into the wild for the first time in life

    But, in case you won’t want to get a sad ending as what the roles played by Sean Penn, especially when you are going solo for that kind of trip, you will really need the tips for that.

    Tips for solo travellers to go into the wild for the first time

    Now, that movie has been giving us life and trip lessons that we can take advantages of it. Many travellers and adventurers since long ago are actually have been telling us many things but sometimes we are forgetting about the lessons. That’s what the human being is doing. We are forgetting things that sometimes they are so valuable for life.

    Therefore, I am here not to teach you what the things you have never heard and known before. But to remind you what you have been actually known before and can be one or two aspects of travelling into the wild that you have not been experienced before especially if you are the first timer solo adventurer.

    So, here we go.

    1. Travel budgeting is still as important as before.

    Right before you are stepping out of your living, you will still need a budget for your solo trip even though you are going into the wild to buy all of the gears and tools you will need. There is no free lunch! So you will also need to buy your own foods and drinks, first aid kits and many more.

    So, you’d better good in prepare your money before and spending them in the right place. I won’t dig a bit deeper to explain this, you will really know what to do with that.

    2. Gain more references to prepare yourself and possible to bring along your way into the wild.

    One of the interesting thing that I keep on remembering until today about the “Into the Wild” movie is that; Sean Penn was bringing the survival book and keep on reading about it.

    It means that if you want to be in the jungle and adventuring by your own, you have to be well prepared yourself about how to survive. The weather can be changed drastically and many things could happen, so that, when you will run out of foods and drinks, or when you will accidentally hurt yourself, you have to deal with them all by yourself.

    And you have to deal with all the circumstances very well.

    Therefore, you need to educate yourself before about the place you are going to as it is the basic thing everyone’s doing before travelling. You can also bring relevant books for that if you think that will be possible for you to take. While it can help you gain more information along the way, it can also be a good thing to bring for spending your times in the wild.

    Besides the book, today we have been also provided the best gadget ever such mobile phone where you can access information or reading the survival e-books at your destinations.

    3. Keep your trip lightweight!

    You won’t want to be exhausted along the way just because of what you have brought in your backpack, right? So that, packing your luggage is also important.

    Bring the lightweight items in the backpack for going in a solo trip into the wild

    For that, I am going to tell you that you will only need the two things which are “what you will really need?” and “how to survive?” That’s all. No matter how beautiful the journey you are taking, the beautiful thing you will need to make sure is that your own safety and then your comfort.

    Adventuring into the wild for solo traveller take big courages and preparations, so that, keep in mind that there will still your families and friends that are waiting you at home.

    If you can get more lightweight items in your backpack, I am the one who are believing that will be a safe and comfort thing you have been started. And to know how you can do it, you’d better start looking for the relevant packing inspirations and planning about the items you will bring.

    4. If you are planning to get a trip into the wild alone, do you know where you are going to rest and sleep?

    Far different by travelling to the city or any other crowded destinations where there are more accommodation offers that can be easily to find, getting into the wild mostly requiring you to prepare your own shelter.

    If you have been searched and none of the accommodation are available and even you can be the only person at the area you are going to, thinking about a place to sleep and rest in the last destination or spot is also vital.

    And since you are planning to get into the wild by going solo for the first time ever, you will really need the place to sleep in comfort and safety way. For that, you may need to spend you budget for a tent even though I will prefer to recommending you to get the single hammock as it is also an item that is lightweight and getting rid off some hassles you can get by using a tent.

    5. How can you reach your family or the rescue team if you are in an emergency?

    Even though you have got a high-end mobile phone’s technology on your hands, the cellphone and internet signal might be reached your destination in the forest, what will be the other ways you can do to call the family and rescue team if in case you are in a sudden emergency circumstances?

    I am included the family as we mostly think that they will be the first people we are going to to contact when we need a help, so does the rescue team or the rangers.

    Your phone can be running out of battery so does the extra power you brings for it. So that, the other “communication” options should be planned as well. I don’t know if you will need a handy talky or not that can reaches miles away, but if that will be the only choice you have, then it is deserves to be thinking about.

    Just anything for your safety where communication can’t be the barrier of your trip into the wild.

    I know that all of the tips above sound like the amateur ones but I think that they are also important for the first timers to get into the wild as a solo traveller. And the last important thing that I should have told you as well is that, you will need to plan about when to getting back home so you are not tempted to have more fun for a long time.

    Trip to Silent Destination to Compose Oneself

    The echo of a trip is usually a crowd. When we are knowing about our friends are travelling, many of us may are imagining about the luxurious crowd around people at the destinations.

    That can be the same thing when we are thinking about our own trip, planning to visit a destination is as crowd as it should be in our mind right before we are getting started it.

    It is nothing wrong with the crowded when you are thinking about it, but in the other hands, I think that it is also important for me to remind yourself and myself as well that sometimes, the only thing you will need is a silent.

    Silent trip destination to compose oneself

    I think that a trip to a silent place or destination is important for many of us especially to compose oneself and to start finding yourself. No matter how abstract I am describing the purpose of this kind of trip, I am sure that you get what I mean, right?

    How comes a quiet holiday destination make yourself a better person?

    Have you been thinking that until today, we are actually living our own life along our family’s life filled by hopping into one complexity issue to the others?

    We are thinking that we have been solving the problem well enough but when the future is come, there will be more troubles as the cause of the solutions we have been applied before.

    We are ruined by the movie and political news on tv that seems to be the same thing in negative way. We keep on learning something and do things that putting us into hard works while telling ourselves that we are find, but we are not!

    There are too many to talk about in a short post as this. So that, I will directly to say to you that give yourself a time to be at somewhere out there, at the silent place where you are thinking that you are the only one at the place and none of the others.

    A silent destination, room, place, etc have been proven can make us thinking more clearly and you can even have many times to know yourself, to thinking about your life, what have you been done and what’s next.

    Sometimes, you have to build a barrier to prevents the others to motivating you and start talking to yourself from time to time. You are responsible for your own life, so you have to do it regularly.

    If it impossible to be somewhere far away, just try to find another favourite place for this silent trip.

    The silent trip is a yoga for your mind and a pray for the whole of your life, so I need you to get it in your spare time or while spending holidays.

    This may not the travel trend where everyone talks about, but this can be the silent retreat where all of us will need. Silent is a hidden sound with various of great joy, sadness, confusions, and many other emotions we have in common. You may will finds yourself through it. Simply gives it a shot!

    Spatial Approach Why Seminyak Village At Bali Is the Tourists Fame

    Many have been realised that the Bali’s tourism development has been great for years so it can be one of the best travel destination in the world. Knowing that fact, then I am thinking about there must be more villages are contributing to make it happen.

    This mustn’t be the works of governments and the businessmen that are collaborating to keep on promoting Bali to the world, but we shouldn’t also leave the contributions of the local people as well as the spatial advantages the villages get.

    And one of the villages that I am going to talk about is the Seminyak village as one of the popular location for tourists in Bali with its positive development trend for at least the past recent decade.

    Spatial approach why Seminyak village at Bali as the perfect location for tourists to spend their holidays

    If you are giving your time to see a map of Seminyak village for a moment, you won’t need much time to finds out that Seminyak is the village with beaches.

    Spatial approach why Seminyak village is perfect location for tourists in Bali

    The main reason for that is the village itself have the special location, spatially. It is a truly one of the beachfront or an ocean view village with scene that you can find in Bali.

    As the foreign travellers are admiring the tropical life of an island, then Seminyak has becoming a village where many of them are heading to until today. Moreover, when they are affordable enough to stay at Seminyak, then there will be more things they can do since accessing beaches will not take longer times.

    Now, as the beaches are developing, then there will be more facilities that are supporting the tourists attractions and things to do. There will also many businesses are running as seen today that can be the great “shelters’ for travellers to spend the leisure times.

    At least, people who have been knowing about how did the Seminyak village looked like 10 or 15 years ago will saying that once, the area was the very quiet and you can find many trees.

    Today, tourism businesses are taking them all over and the area now is giving you the enough crowd and noises where you can still move and live comfort.

    Anyway, one of the wondering thing regarding to the accommodation business in the area, I am sure that the villas are dominating the accommodation type at Seminyak.

    I dunno whether it is because of the villas themselves are the perfect ones to be rented and stayed nearby the beach or since they are quiet affordable for many of the travellers. What is clear form what I have seen is that, the numbers are higher compared to the hotels and the others.

    Therefore, people like you and the other travellers that have been there and will be there someday are most likely to rent the Seminyak villas as well.

    Next thing that getting my attention about the spatial advantage the Seminyak village get is the whole are itself is also near to some of the other available cities capitals.

    As one of the village that administratively included into the Badung regency, Seminyak village will only need 30-40 minutes to the international airport by taxi.

    By using the same transportation, you will also need around 20-30 minutes to the main city of Denpasar, an hour to Gianyar, and many more. Think about using the motorbike or Grab, all of the estimated time will at least can be reduced about 50% or even less than that.

    I am telling you this because the closer and easier the surround cities are accessed, the more things you can do and see and experience why traveling in Bali.

    Thus why there are many tourists will taking Seminyak as where they are going to experience the attractions and destinations. While, it can even be the first choice for them to makes it as the place to find their accommodations to stay.

    Surely there will be more reasons that can be the advantages why Seminyak village can be a perfect place for tourists to spend the holidays regarding to the spatial approach as you have just read. But for now, hope you will be glad knowing some of them as above. Thank you for stopping by. Share this article if you finds it beneficial. See you later.

You can even visit your neighbor country.

    Search for in-town festivals

    There must be some events held in your town or nearby once in a while. You can research about what kind of event and the time.

    Why Having a Travel Packing List Helps

    A packing list is often seen as something that isn’t a must for your travels. But the truth is, having a packing list would ease your travels. Benefits of having a packing list are numerous. These are some of the top ones that you should consider.

    Having a packing list prevents overpacking

    Overpacking is the number one packing mistake that most people make. Whether you’re a rookie traveler or call yourself a seasoned traveler, virtually everyone had been there. Whether it’s a pantsuit you ended up not wearing or that umbrella you never get to use in your destination. Not getting to use or wear some of the things you’ve packed into your bag is one of the most frustrating things once you unpack your bags at home. A packing list helps you keep track of things. Keeping track of your belongings may be easily overlooked, especially when you think you’re only bringing very few things with you. Having a list to help you identify your items help tremendously.

    A packing list helps prevent you from forgetting an item

    Whether it’s during your departure to your destinations or during your coming home. A packing list is more than just a tool that has your items displayed on it. The process of writing down your belongings itself is, apparently, beneficial. Writing down the items you’re bringing for your travel is going to make you remember the stuff you’re bringing.

    You’ll learn about your own packing behavior

    A packing list often has the most essential things. You’ll probably add items as you actually start packing your stuff. Start noticing what these items are and why do you think of bonging them in the first place? Including an item that’s not on your packing list as you do the actual packing is something extremely common. That does not have to mean a bad thing.

    You’ll learn that planning ahead pays off

    Even though you’re packing your bag at the last minutes before your departure, having created a packing list beforehand is surprisingly very helpful. By having a packing list ready, you would already have the thoughts of what items you’re going to pack. You’ll also have the thoughts of the items you may need to buy for your trip. You wouldn’t be scrambling off at the last minute before your flights take off. Having a packing list means so much less worry and travel-related anxiety for you.

    It’s particularly important if you have special needs

    This could be anything, as no two people would have the same needs. A common example is traveling with children. This state of traveling would undoubtedly need more thorough planning. Starting with a packing list is a brilliant way for you to get started to tackle the travel plan bit by bit. Leading your kids early on to having their very own packing list would also get them involved in the process. It can be a fun activity to help stimulate their creativity. You’ll be showing them not just a responsibility for their own belongings, but also that planning for a journey should not be stressful!
