Despite getting everything sorted, I’m starting to feel pretty nervous now. I know I’ve done similar before and this is what I want but that doesnt stop anxiety creeping in or the fact I’m going to miss my family and friends so much. My routines going from getting up at 5.30am to go and sit in an office for 8 hours to getting up at 5.30 to go dive with some sharks and although thats exciting stuff, change still scares me. But anyway, enough feeling sorry for myself, lets do this 💪🏼🙈🦈

I do believe it’s time for another adventure”
