Yesterday we completed the PADI IDC for January 2014 on Gili Air in Indonesia in conjunction with PADI 5* IDC Center ‘Oceans 5’.
It’s been a strange one though! For the first time in 11 years I became sick during an IDC and for 4 days I was in bed with high fever. Sander, owner of ‘Oceans 5’ and also a PADI Course Director took over for those 4 days. The moment I got better, Sander became sick, so I jumped in again and completed the IDC.
We both taught half of this IDC and that’s only possibly in the Gili’s at ‘Oceans 5’, the only location with two PADI Course Directors.

Riet completed her IDCS course and Lilian and Martin completed their IDC. Miyah has a perforated eardrum and will be back for the February IDC on Gili Air, when hopefully she will be fine to go in the water again.
My next PADI IDC is scheduled to start 5th February in Khao Lak, Thailand, followed by 22nd February on Gili Air, Indonesia, followed by 12th March in Phuket, Thailand and 8th April on Koh Phangan, Thailand.
